Window treatments are an investment, and as the old adage goes, sometimes you get exactly what you pay for. While this is true for some window treatments, it isn’t a universal rule. Look for window blinds or shutters made using materials that do the job but are built to last. So, before you buy inexpensive roller blinds online or settle for costly window shutters, have a look at the custom window treatments offered by the team at Peerless Wallpaper & Blinds for the durability you need in the high-traffic areas of your home.

Hunter Douglas NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters faux wood window shutters and shades near Monroeville, Pennsylvania (PA).

Faux wood shutters: Sturdy and pleasing to the eye

Wood is a desirable material for shutters as it is durable, beautiful and a natural insulator. On the other hand, humidity can cause wood to warp or fade over time. This makes wood shutters less suitable to your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and sunroom. Faux wood shutters exude the charm of real wood without warping or fading. Here's why: Faux wood is a wood substitute that looks and feels like real wood. Faux wood shutters are made using composite wood, which is real wood particles, strands, and veneers bound together, and they don't chip, crack or fade over time.

The faux wood shutters from Hunter Douglas are built using wood composite material, along with a polypropylene coating. The wood composite elevates the shutters' appearance and creates a durable frame of horizontal rails and vertical stiles. Polypropylene, a type of tough, rigid plastic, resists moisture and impact extremely well. Overall, the shutters deliver the excellent durability you want.

Also from Hunter Douglas, the window shutters are made of Polysatin™ material, a type of vinyl plastic that's extremely durable and well-suited to hot or humid places. So, you don't have to worry about warping, chipping, cracking or peeling no matter how hot or humid it gets.

Prefer blinds to shutters?

In general, blinds have a shorter lifetime than window shutters. But if they make more sense cost-wise or if you'd like to have more control on the light to let in, faux wood blinds are just the custom window treatments for you.

This Hunter Douglas product is made from modern man-made materials to withstand heat and humidity. The faux wood blinds have the refined quality of hardwood yet don't easily warp, bow or fade. They're available in different colors and patterns, making it easy to match the decor of your sunroom or bathroom to a faux wood blind from the collection.

Aluminum blinds are another choice. Aluminum, while less attractive than wood, is more durable and won't warp when exposed to heat and light. Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds blend sleek beauty with good wear-and-tear resistance. If your kids and pets love window blinds as much as you do, the Hunter Douglas aluminum blinds are exactly what you need. They're built to withstand rough treatment and maintain their shape even if your dog tries to push her head through them.
