Faux Wood Blinds in Colorado Springs

Main Image
 

If you are looking for Faux Wood Blinds in Colorado Springs, the Blind Connection is who you need to call. Every day Colorado Springs residents save between 25% and 75% of retail prices on Faux Wood Blinds.

Faux Wood Blinds look very similar to wood blinds - except Faux Wood Blinds are made of PVC (the same material used to make the white plastic pipes you see at home improvment stores). They are less expensive that real wood blinds, and because they are not made of wood, faux wood blinds are better for potentially wet environments like bathrooms.

Pros

You get the look of wood blinds for 30% less, and they are water resistant. They are available in 2", 2.5" and 3" slats. They are great for bathrooms.

Cons

The biggest drawback is their weight. They are susceptible to fading and warping in sunny windows. They are also very heavy blinds, which makes them more difficult to raise. We do not recommend these for children's rooms or larger windows. Because they are not as rigid as wood blinds, they frequently have more strings than wood blinds.

Summary

In spite of their drawbacks, they are very popular because they provide a nice look for a a little bit more money than an aluminum miniblind. Most manufacturers have very limited warranties on these blinds, so you need really understand the durability concerns in advance of purchasing them.
