As is commonly known, privacy is the first reason that makes people use curtains and faux wood blinds. Nosy neighbors and dangerous intruders are most likely to make your house a target if they are able to peek into your living rooms through your uncovered windows. Besides, blinds help you to control the amount of light that pours into your house. You can use them to either darken or lighten up a room. When the room is too bright for you, just close them. If it is too dark for your lighting fold them up. Yes, it’s just that easy. With these blinds you can also manage the heat level of your house.

That is to say, how much hest enters the place and how much goes out. Exterior faux wood blinds keep the house from getting too heated during the summer, while the interior blinds prevent heat from flowing out during those chilly winter days. This also means that the blinds are a pretty budget friendly way to keep your house weather controlled. Another amazing attribute that blinds have is that they can embellish your house incredibly, and you don’t even have to lose your hold over the purse strings. They make beautiful window dressings at very low costs. Choose to get a blind which is made from the material (fabric, wood, cellular, faux wood, metal, etc), color and design of your liking and you are ready to give your room a striking makeover.

There are quite a few types of window faux wood blinds and the one which is most favored by consumers are the Roman faux wood blinds. Roman shades have been used by people for some hundred years now and times passes, on they only seem to get better. Roman shades are generally made of fabric, which is pleated and stitched in folds and when folded up, they roll up and neatly stack in one place. These shades have various names like fabric shades, pleated shades, Romanesque shades, etc. They come in different colors, styles and of course you get choices in the kind of fabric too. The Roman shades are generally made from silk, cotton, linen and weaves. Another kind of Roman shades is made from bamboos. Plus you can also choose from roman shades that are sheer and allow a little amount of light in the room and the ones that are semi-opaque.

There are different kinds of Roman shades which range from pleated, hobbled, blackout, insulated, light filtering to flat fold and top-down-bottom-up. The hobbled designs are the classic ones which have billowing folds cascading the length of the shade. Flat style ones provide a prim tailored look since the panels hang evenly when lowered or folded. It is pretty easy to have a Roman shade custom made, all you have to do choose the type of fabric or bamboo you want them made in, the color and style and order them with the right sides and a week later you will have your very own Roman shades.

Roman shades, and also other kinds of faux wood blinds, are therefore, perfect if you want to give your home or workplace a time-tested, textured, rich and warm look.
