Faux Wood Blinds can often serve as the perfect alternative to traditional wood blinds, especially in areas of high humidity or in rooms that typically experience high traffic. Although they are 60-100% heavier than conventional blinds and offer a limited range of color options, they are very cost-effective and provide significant durability.
Faux wood blinds do not offer as wide a range of slats widths as traditional wood blinds do. Faux wood blinds are available in 2″ and 2 ½” slats and are usually constructed of PVC or a Composite blend of PVC and wood pulp. Faux wood blinds are made available in two types of slats, those being curved slats and flat slats, each offering their own unique advantages. Curved slats provide greater light control for dark rooms while flat slats offer a modest look that are highly effective in mimicking the look of wood blinds.
Available Faux Wood Blinds options offered by Contempo include Routless and Cloth Tapes wood blinds.
Faux wood blinds will not warp or crack with changes in moisture and are therefore the optimal choice for use in areas or rooms with high levels of humidity and moisture, particularly where filter water collects. The two main types of faux wood blinds available, both offered by Contempo, are PVC Faux Wood Blinds and composite faux wood blinds.

We have two systems among which you can choose for the installation of your Window Coverings:
Rod and cord: This is the system most used by our customers. The rod allows us to orient the slats so that more or less amount of light enters. With the cord we can raise and lower the slats completely or leave them at the height we want.
Single-lever chain: When we pull the chain, the slats go up or down and to orient the slats, just pull in the opposite direction. A mechanism used when we want a more comfortable system.
