Blinds, Faux Verses Wood – That’s the Question.


After all the years I’ve been in the window covering industry this is still the most asked question, what’s the difference between faux wood and real wood blinds?

Let’s begin with faux wood blinds, We carry  great brands that are made of PVC, they will not warp or fade unlike the blinds you find in dept stores and Wal Mart. Our blinds are custom made to fit your size of windows. We carry many shades of whites and wood stain to match your wood work or cabinets. One of the best features is the cordless lift, if you have children or pets you should definitely buy the cordless feature for the safety of your little ones or fur babies. Faux wood will be heavier in weight than wood so if you’re a pull up my blinds everyday person these probably aren’t for you.

Wood blinds are affordable let me repeat wood blinds are affordable! We have the most beautiful wood blinds in the industry, the stains we have will match any trim you may have or your cabinets. At Made in the shade we have 1 inch 2 inch and 2 1/2 inch slats. One of the features that’s been very popular this year has been the barn wood look. Real woods are so much lighter in weight than faux wood so if you have an extra large window you don’t have to be a weight lifter to raise your them.

Faux or wood blinds are a great way to start a layered look, start with the blinds then add side panels or top treatments. You won’t break the bank with blinds, we don’t carry the cheap vinyl like dept stores. We carry a quality blind with a fair and affordable price. As always we back our products with a limited life time warranty. If you’re curious about what Made in the Shade can do for you give us a call today we’d be happy to meet with you.
