Faux wood blinds are an economical choice for window treatments costing up to a third less than blinds made of real wood. Composed of a mixture of hardwood particles and a type of vinyl, faux wood blinds are considered to be more durable than their real wooden counterparts, as they rarely warp or bend. This makes them an excellent choice for humid environments such as bathrooms. To maintain the blinds, simply dust them with a soft clean cloth or use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Heavy dirt can be wiped off with a clean cloth dampened with warm water, adding a mild detergent if necessary. Professional services that specialize in blind cleaning are also an option.
