Most people immediately cringe upon hearing the term faux wood. Perhaps the quality of the faux materials in the past failed to come close to the raw and natural beauty of natural and real wood. However, as the years went by, composite materials have become one of the best alternatives to real wood, especially when making window treatments. Today, faux or composite wood window treatments offer splendidly wood simulated window treatment and more.
When wooden shutters are considered a luxury in today’s limited wood resources, faux wood is seen as an alternative material that can stand in place of real wood. Faux wood is usually made from materials that incorporate vinyl and polymers. Real wood may even be used to give the material the desired grainy feel or to make its texture close to real wood. In lessening or replacing the need for real wood for window protection and home privacy, it presented a relatively inexpensive yet equally appealing and effective window treatment that is ideal even to areas which is usually subjected to high moisture levels.
Wood is a traditional option when it comes to window treatment. Considering its cost, having wood shutters installed say a lot about the homeowner’s lifestyle and design taste. But while wood becomes rapidly expensive, too expensive in fact for average American families, the versatility of composite wood window treatment completes a classy visual edge to window treatments.
