Faux Wood venetian blinds are relatively new to the Irish market. They are composite material usually made from polystyrene.
All components are of high quality, hardwearing, corrosion resistant materials. The polystyrene slats have excellent colour consistency which will not fade, crack or blister, they are also Flame Retardant so they are a great alternative for kitchens.
They are very popular because they are durable and easy to clean. They are especially particularly durable in wet or high humidity area, making them good for areas that may be exposed to moisture as they do not warp easily, making them ideal for environments such as bathrooms and wet rooms.
However, they are substantially heavier which can be a problem when you have larger windows to cover. Many manufacturers will recommend that you split the area into two or three parts to prolong the life of the blind.
Faux wood blinds come in either 50mm or 35mm slat widths and can be manufactured up to 2400mm wide. Valance, headrail, bottom rail, tassels, tapes and cords are all colour coordinated with the slats.
