What Materials Are Faux Woods Made Of?

There are two common materials used to create faux wood blinds: PVC/vinyl and composite wood. Both options are durable, long lasting and economical when compared to the real wood alternative. Either material is a good choice for your home, as faux wood blinds, in general, are scratch-resistant and won’t fade, split, or warp in humid environments. The differences between PVC and composite faux woods are minor and can only be found in you look within each slat.

Vinyl faux wood blind slats are made entirely from a solid vinyl material, while their composite counterparts are generally created with a wood core. However, both are eventually covered in a layer of polymer for increased durability. Out of the two choices, composite faux woods may be a slightly better option as they are often lighter and offer marginally superior insulation. Whichever material you choose, you’ll be treated to the same warm look of real wood with a much more forgiving price point.
