The difference between the faux wood blinds and the wood blinds is fairly significant. The faux wood blind looks like wood, it’s a little heavier than wood, so a little bit more difficult to lift up and down on a larger window, but is guaranteed never to warp.
However, because faux wood blinds are heavier than natural wood blinds, the issues of use are compounded.
On large windows, you'll find that both sets of these blinds become quite heavy when lifting, which is why we often advise people not to put one of these blinds on large windows unless using more than one blind per window. Each time you raise these heavy blinds, there will be wear and tear on the cord which will, over time, cause the cord to fail. You can use these in any room, but they’re not the best for room darkening, because they do create light gaps between the slats on the blinds, so in a bedroom there’s still some light that is able to leak through into the room.
