Benefits of Alternative Wood Blinds

There are many benefits that come with swapping out genuine things for an alternative option. Swapping out whole milk for soy milk might help you reach your health goals. Shopping store-brand alternatives can save you some money during your next grocery trip. Swapping candy for a sugar-free gum can help your dental health. Whatever the swap is, alternatives can sometimes offer more benefits than the original. This can also be true for your window treatments! While we adore genuine wood blinds, choosing alternative wood blinds might actually be better for your home. In fact, if you want a window treatment that is durable, low maintenance, and gorgeous, then you will love adding alternative wood blinds to your home.

Alternative Beauty

Do you worry that alternative wood blinds won’t look as good as genuine wood blinds? Let us put your mind at ease! Hunter Douglas takes careful steps to ensure that their alternative wood blinds never look fake. EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds come in a variety of stunning colors, including Praline, Chateau, Almondine Streaked, and more. These offer a warm, rich look at each window. To avoid looking fake, EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds also offer the most realistic stain-like finishes in the industry. You might even start to wonder if your faux wooden blinds are even faux when you hang them up!

Made to Last

While we love for our blinds to look good, that doesn’t hold a candle to us loving their durability! After all, no one wants to go through the process of getting new blinds sooner than they have to. EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds are constructed to resist fading, yellowing, warping, and bowing, even when exposed to intense or harsh elements like sun or humidity. This makes them a wonderful option for bathrooms, sunrooms, and kitchens alike. Instead of worrying about damage, you can simply sit back, relax, and drink in the beauty and durability of your alternative wood blinds.

Sleep Benefits

Sleep benefits? From alternative wood blinds? Yup! You heard that right. While we enjoy letting in the sunlight, we want unparalleled darkness when it comes to sleeping or enjoying a glare-free movie night. Street lamps, car headlights, and the moon can cause glare on our screens and prevent us from getting a good night’s sleep. That is why EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds boast the de-Light™ feature that eliminates cord holes and reduces light leaks up to 50 more than wood blind constructions at big box stores. This makes them an excellent option for bedrooms, kids’ rooms, and guest bedrooms in your home.
