Window coverings provide dynamic accents for any room, and homeowners who are remodeling or redecorating have many window covering options to choose from, in a variety of styles and price ranges.

Blinds and shutters are certainly the most popular window coverings today. They are suitable for any room, and they can lend a finished, sophisticated look to your home's décor. Many homeowners opt for wood blinds, as they incorporate the craftsmanship and elegance associated with fine furniture. While wood blinds are more expensive than other blind choices, they do offer many unique benefits. Wood blinds are the most durable window covering available, and they will provide service for many years with minimal care. Since wooden blinds are very sturdy, an occasional cleaning with a damp cloth is generally all that is necessary in terms of maintenance. Additionally, wood blinds offer much more privacy than other window covering options, since the material is completely opaque. Wood blinds also provide sound insulation, thereby reducing exterior noise in a room. And if you decide to change the color scheme of your interior decoration, most blinds can easily be re-stained or re-painted to match the new look of the room.

Faux blinds look like wood blinds, but they are actually construed with vinyl, vinyl compounds, or a combination of wood and vinyl. Faux blinds offer an affordable option to wood blinds while possessing many of the same advantages. It is also worth considering that faux blinds are actually preferable to wood blinds in rooms where there is a high moisture content (which might warp or damage wood), or in rooms used by children.
