"Your installer just left a few minutes ago, and I can't stop staring at the living room.

It looks like a brand new room! Thank you for the time you took to ensure we chose the right blinds, and to your installer who fixed the old venetian blind in our bathroom while he was here. We couldn't be happier!"

 

- Gretchen & Andrew V.

There are benefits to both styles, and the right answer depends on many factors. Let’s look at a few of them.

Brite Blinds’ real wood blinds are made from North American basswood, and finished with the finest quality stain and varnish to allow the true wood grain to emerge. The finish also protects the wood from fading and warping. Real wood is also lighter than faux wood, making it easier to raise and lower the blinds.

 

Faux wood blinds are a less expensive alternative to real wood blinds. They combine the look and feel of wood with the durability of PVC. Their water and UV resistance make them ideal for our unpredictable Canadian climate. Beware of manufacturers who sell ‘faux wood’ blinds made from foam. These are flimsy, heavy, and will sag and warp in a very short amount of time. Brite Blinds uses only high-quality PVC, and we stand behind our product with a rock-solid lifetime warranty.
