Modern faux wood blinds are nothing like you might remember from your great aunt’s best friend’s house. These faux wood blinds are made from durable PVC. While that might not sound very glamours, it’s actually quite hard to tell they’re not made from real wood. The look of wood grain is so believable, your friends might just think you’re amazing at caring for expensive real wood blinds. It’s because of this PVC material that faux wood blinds can stand the test of time, and more importantly moisture.

This makes them a great option for bathrooms and kitchens. Faux wood blinds can stand up to steam from the shower or water splatter from the sink. They won’t warp or fade because of moisture. In fact, you can even use water to help clean them. Though a microfiber cloth works best to keep the dust away. Faux wood blinds also help to control privacy, which is especially great in the bathroom!
