Part two of our window treatment series covers four more options for changing the look of your window and home. Of course, all of these window treatment types are available at our store. Paper Doll Interiors also offers installation of window treatments.
Faux Wood Blinds
Faux wood blinds offer the look of wood but are a less expensive option. They are composed of composite wood, vinyl, PVC or a combination of the three. One advantage of faux wood over actually wood is that they are more resistant to water. Hence, they are better solutions for:
- Areas that have moisture in the air such bathrooms and kitchens
- Children’s rooms, workshop areas, or laundry rooms
One of the benefits of cellular shades is their ability to insulate rooms. In fact, they are among the best energy-efficient window treatments available. Cellular shades use a honeycomb cell pattern within their fabric which traps air. This system:
- Helps to retain heat in the winter
- Reduces cool air loss from windows during the summer
Woven Wood Shades
Don’t let the name wood blind fool you. Manufacturers make wood blind from several types of woods and other materials. For instance, some wood blinds are made from bamboo, oak, or teak wood just to name a few. Other “wood” blinds can actually be composed of specialty grasses. Wood blinds are a great option for those seeking:
- A more natural look for home décor
- A more casual feel to a room
Panel Track Blinds
Panel track blinds are frequently seen in apartments and hotels because of their versatility and durability. Their sliding action allows you to control the light and offers a good amount of privacy when the shades are flattened.
