Faux wood blinds vs real wood..???.
I purchased wood blinds for our kitchen windows several years back from Next Day Blinds, I think, and have been happy with them. A decorator from a local curtain shop gave us an estimate on some curtains, and blinds. I had told her I wanted to use wood blinds in the family room since I had them in my kitchen. (These are painted, not stained) Just noticed her estimate is for FAUX wood blinds. I asked her about the faux wood, and she said it is better for the environment and insulates better than the wood. I have not compared prices anywhere else, but I thought $620 was rather high for fake wood for a double window, and it is more than what I paid for my wooden blinds, for the same size window, plus two narrow side windows.
So is she right or off her rocker?
