Faux wood (PVC) Venetian blinds are now one of the MOST popular blinds we sell. Over the last few years, faux wood has outsold the original wooden equivalent, this is mainly due to the finished look being so similar to wood, but they cost about 15% less.
This timeless classic combines everything you need in a blind, it can reduce light entering a room or be totally closed and it can increase privacy even when open. The faux wood (PVC) louvres look very similar to Wooden Venetian blinds and create an elegant style and look amazing.
They are suitable for almost any window. The option to tilt and turn the louvres provides great light control and privacy. They can be raised up to allow a clear window or can be closed to reduce light and give privacy.
These are made by our expert staff in our local factory. Therefore, we can survey and then install your new wooden Venetians usually in around 1-2 weeks’ time from start to finish.
Their cost depends on the width and height of the blind. See the basic costing guide below.
Faux wood blinds are less expensive than wood Venetians.
Estimated prices for faux wood Venetian blinds on seven windows will range between £400 – £800 (depending on the size and style selected).
This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get at Excell Blinds! As with all blinds, this is subjective to personal taste, but in our opinion Wooden Venetian blinds provide a slightly more luxurious look and feel. However, there is very little difference between the real wood and faux wood in terms of the finished look. Therefore, faux wood is now more popular than real wood, as it looks very similar but is about 15% less expensive than real wood.
Yes, they can. As it’s made from PVC material, it can expand and contract a little when heated and cooled. However, this is usually minimal. Long-term exposure to heat can cause them to warp (on dark colours).
Unlike real wood, Faux Wood Venetians are suitable for bathrooms or areas of high humidity, however.
We do have a selection of Faux Wood Venetians in stock (limited colours only) that can be made and fitted the next day after the survey. This is only available upon special request and is subject to an additional fee.
Although Faux Wood Venetian blinds are prone to collecting dust, they are easily cleanable. To keep these blinds free from dust, you should use a feather duster or a vacuum with an upholstery brush attachment. Care should be taken when cleaning these blinds, and if you are wiping the blinds down you should use a dry cloth to avoid cracking the paint.
