2" Composite Faux Wood Blinds
Our 2" composite faux wood blinds are the most popular subcategory under the Faux Woods. Made of engineered composite materials, they resemble the real wood blind so close it is hard to tell them apart. Wood tone finishes look on most products almost identical to a true wooden grain. The composite materials are guaranteed not to warp, yellow or crack and are perfectly suited in high humidity areas as well as rooms with intense sunlight. The 2" look is traditional with its clean classic lines and works well with almost any decor.
The 2 1/2" composite faux woods are available in two slat designs. They are offered with the beveled slat or the rounded plantation slat style. As the 2" composites, they are crafted of engineered composite materials for a true wood blind look; most wood tones being a close resemblance of a wood grain finish. The 2 1/2" slat is gaining in popularity, giving a more open view to the outside and also resembling a shutter look.
The 2" vinyl polymer faux wood blinds are the most economical choice when looking for a wood blind look at a lower cost.

Vinyl polymers do not warp, yellow or crack.
