Welcome to natural light and a bright, open feel with privacy intact. Welcome to a sleek, modern appeal. Welcome to Bali Diffusion.
Bali Diffusion is an innovative product offered exclusively by Bali. The privacy is created by the textured side of the blind, which scatters light while allowing it to fill your room, creating complete privacy in your home. From as little as 6 inches away from your blind, your privacy is complete- and so is your enjoyment of the beauty of natural light.
Wood blinds are a beautiful creation. They bring warmth and color to a room while blocking light and providing privacy. Basswood blinds are economical but beautiful, while North American hardwood has a luster to it that brings any room to life. But Wood blinds can be a drag on your style in certain settings. They have very limited resistance to moisture, which can result in warping and cracking over time. Wood blinds are available in a variety of stains to match your furniture, but those stains are vulnerable to chipping and gouging, especially along the edges.
Faux wood blinds are a great, economical alternative. Named “faux”- the French word “false”- these creations provide more value than their name implies. They have all the same great options avialable like routeless, cordless, and decorative tapes. Many brands coordinate colors between their faux wood and real wood collections, so customers who have their hearts set on Wood can put a sturdy alternative in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. In addition, most manufacturers carry verticals that coordinate with their Faux Wood collections for a warm, coordinated look throughout the entire home, even on pation doors.
What really sets faux wood apart is its value. Not only is faux wood typically less expensive than its counterpart, it is also more durable. Faux wood is made of two materials: either a durable PVC foam or a composite material of blended wood particles and PVC. Blinds made of PVC are the least expensive option and have the best resistance to moisture. Composite-based blinds are the most durable, and resist warping in hot sun conditions. They are also lighter weight, making them easier to raise and lower, and many are made of recylced materials for your peace of mind. Another great way to take advantage of the value of your blinds: order 2 1/2 inch slats for greater view-through and a great alternative to shutters.
Any faux wood blind you choose for your home is sure to add great style and character, bringing years of enjoyment to any home in any budget.
If you are looking for the elegant look of wood window blinds but can’t squeeze them into your budget or the window is exposed to a lot of moisture, consider faux wood blinds as an equal alternative. Some faux wood styles even mimic the texture of natural wood. Faux wood blinds are available in a variety of natural white tones as well as a whole range of replica wood tones and matching valance is included with every order.
Faux wood blinds have adjustable slats that come in two sizes: 2 inch or 2-½ inch, and each size serves a different need.
Two-inch slats, the most popular size, offers privacy and light control which is important for bedrooms and bathrooms. Many brands offer upgrades for faux wood blinds to eliminate more light by hiding or disappearing visible route holes for a smoother appearance and increasing sound absorption. Another option available to cover the route holes are 1 ½ inch tapes which add a decorative embellishment to enhance your décor.
If you are worried that window blinds will obstruct your external view, you may prefer the 2 ½ inch slats to let in more light and maintain a clear vista. Larger slats are also a better choice for larger windows. If you like the look of shutters, some window blinds are available with 2-½ inch shutter style slats, which are beveled and have a tasteful and unique look. Faux wood shutters are also now available at BlindSaver.com.
Benefits of faux wood blinds include moisture resistance and easy care. The moisture resistant feature makes them ideal for rooms with high humidity such as bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens. Faux wood blinds are also easy to clean with a light duster, vacuum attachment or a damp rag without worrying about causing water damage or warping. The faux wood blinds work to insulate and reduce energy costs and many are made with recycled material.

Wood blinds are beautiful and are one of the first things that people notice when they walk into your home. They can also be a challenge when it comes to the task of cleaning them. Cleaning wooden or faux wood blinds keeps the dust off so they look their best. With a few simple cleaning techniques, you won’t work up a sweat while cleaning your wood blinds.
With regular cleaning, dust will not build up making each cleaning quick and easy. You can get away with dusting your blinds about once per month (depending on how dusty your home gets), or just dust whenever you see a layer of dust start to form.
For a quick dust, tilt the slats down and dust with your favorite furniture dusting tool.
For a more thorough cleaning wipe each slat with a soft cloth. Do not use water, solvents or abrasive solutions to clean the blind. This will cause damage to the blind. In very dusty environments, use a non-wax furniture polish to clean the blinds.
You can clean the blind hanging in place or you can take it down. By tilting the slats down, but not quite closed, you’ll be able to clean most of the top surface of each slat.
Some useful cleaning tools for cleaning both wood and faux wood blinds are dust mitts or magnet dusters made of wool or microfiber. Place an old sheet or newspaper on the floor below the window to catch runaway dust particles. Dryer sheets can also come in handy to rub against your cleaning tool so that dust sticks to the tool’s surface better.
Regardless of what you use, check with the manufacturer and test in an inconspicuous spot first to make sure it doesn’t damage your blinds. Keep your wood blinds clean and they will last and look beautiful for many years.
