Alternate wood blinds also known as faux wood and composite wood blinds are made of vinyl/PVC material that is compressed together to form a wood look. Some manufacturers have used a mixture of composite wood and PVC to make a more elegant and sturdy blind. One of the reasons why we are excited about this product is the lack of distinction between the wood blinds and the faux wood blinds.

Another reason why this blind is one of our favorites is the many color and hardware options. Faux Wood blinds come in a variety of color choices such as white, browns and dark browns. Additionally, you have the option to have the blinds made route less (without the route holes), which will provide additional privacy. A decorative cloth tape can be added to offer a great compliment. If you are concern about your children or pets safety consider having cordless operation system.
