So, real wood window blinds are fine and can be in use for many years. But they have a shortcoming. They don’t bear extreme temperatures and moisture, discolor even though the wood is sealed, therefore can’t be used in a kitchen or a bathroom. In that case pay attention to faux wood window blinds which represent a composite of man-made materials and natural timber particles. It is a perfect alternative because their properties are inferior to natural treatments and even better in many respects.
