One of the biggest challenges when choosing blinds for your home is choosing between plaswood and real wood blinds. Both have similar features and give off the same vibe, but there are some key differences to consider, the biggest one being the price. Here’s how wood blinds and plaswood blinds differ.
Wood blinds are manufactured from real wood, thus an eco-friendly option. They provide inimitable charm and are a natural choice for people who love upscale living and stylish interiors. Because of their thick texture, they are durable and will last for many years. They provide excellent light control and privacy to protect your home from wandering eyes. Wood blinds are perfect for living rooms, bedrooms and entryways but not for kitchens and bathrooms because they are susceptible to damage in areas with excess moisture.
Plaswood venetian blinds are manufactured from vinyl, PVC or composite wood material and look almost identical to real wood. Plaswood blinds are impervious to moisture and can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens, sunrooms and coastal areas. Even when exposed to the extreme temperatures we sometimes experience in South Africa, they do not warp, crack or split and they are stain-resistant. The sturdiness of plaswood venetian blinds makes them an excellent choice for homes with kids and pets. Below are our top 3 reasons to consider a plaswood blinds installation.
Plaswood Blinds Are More Affordable
Look just like real wood but without the expense. If you are on a budget but still want the elegant look of wood venetian blinds, plaswood blinds is the answer. They are extremely cost-effective compared to real wood blinds.
Plaswood Blinds Are Highly Durable
These types of blinds are perfect for the South African climate. Because of composite wood material and high-quality PVC, they can adapt to moisture and humidity, making them highly durable.
Plaswood Blinds Are Available in a Wide Range of Colours
Unlike wood blinds, plaswood blinds are available in a variety of colours to suit your unique decor style.
Where to Find High-Quality, Affordable Plaswood Blinds in South Africa
Plaswood blinds are a technological breakthrough that has taken the market by storm. As we have mentioned before, they are the preferred choice for places that get a considerable amount of rainfall each year and homes that experience high humidity in coastal areas. They are easy to clean and durable. Compared to real wood blinds, the wood-like look will make you look twice and wonder if they are real or not.
