Faux Wood with Real Wood Look

Q: I really want wood blinds, but I'm installing them in my bathroom and know that faux wood holds up better under humidity. What options do I have for getting faux wood blinds that look like real wood?

A: Faux wood blinds come in all kinds of stains and textures ranging from natural and maple shades to darker chestnut or mahogany. Faux wood blinds have come a long way in recent years and they look so much like real wood, it's hard to tell the difference! You can order ones that resemble pine for a more country look or darker, richer stains that match both modern or traditional styles.

The great thing about faux wood is, not only do they look and feel like real wood, a lot of time they come with the same features as real wood blinds. Routless (no little holes in the slats for strings to go through) and cloth tapes are two of the most popular additions to faux wood blinds. And they really warm up bathrooms and kitchens. What a great idea!
