Why Faux Wood Blinds are our customers’ top choice?

With so much choice on our website sometimes it can be hard to narrow down what is the best blind for what room. Here at Swift Direct Blinds, we want to help you have as much information as possible so you can feel confident when you purchase our blinds.

In this blog, we’re focusing on one of our most popular blind choices: faux wood blinds. There’s so much to love about faux wood blinds and we’re going to highlight three major benefits of choosing faux wood blinds for your home.


Material Benefits of Faux Wood Blinds

One of the major benefits of faux wood blinds is that they’re a budget-friendly choice. But the budget isn’t the only thing that makes our faux wood blinds desirable.

For starters, they’re made from UPVC which means that they’re completely water-resistant and have increased strength and durability. This means you don’t have to worry about spills or splashes too because they’re easily wiped clean.

Secondly, because they’re UPVC they’re an eco-friendly choice without sacrificing the style and look of real wood blinds.


Colour and Size Choices

Our faux wood blinds are available in three slat width sizes, 35mm, 50mm, and 60mm. They’re also available in a huge range of colours, from staple neutrals in grey tones, beige tones and bright whites, to light and dark natural wood colour replicas like oak, and bold bright colours through the whole rainbow. One of our favourite styles is also the taped faux wooden blinds, available with matching or contrasting tapes which are perfect for a dramatic and bold contrasting colour or a seamless integrated finish.


Ideal For Any Room in Your Home

Because of their great features, such as being completely water-resistant and highly durable, our faux wood blinds are a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms. We recommend putting them in bathrooms because the steam and water can occasionally warp other blind types.

Also a great choice for windows above the kitchen sink so you don’t have to worry about any spills or splashes They’re also great for bedrooms and offices too because they allow for optimal light control and privacy. When we told you there were tons of benefits to faux wood blinds, we weren’t kidding!

It should be no surprise that one of our best selling faux wood blinds is our Premier Bright White Faux Wood blind and Premier Taped Bright White Faux Wood blind. Even better these are available for SwiftTrack Next Day Delivery Service which means when you pay a little extra to upgrade to our SwiftTrack service and order before noon you can get your blinds the very next day.

As Grey neutrals are always popular, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our Deco Dove Grey Faux Wood Blind – a stunning smokey grey tone. Finally, we have to give a very special mention to one of our absolute fave blinds, which is also super popular with stylists, the Deco Taped True White with Contrast Jet Tape Faux Wood blind. Super chic, stylish and sophisticated. What more could you want?
