Fauxwood Venetian Blinds Information

Fauxwood blinds link

Faux wooden venetian blinds create a warm and cosy atmosphere, making them perfect for your living room or bedroom. Each blind is made to measure, made up of wood composite and polymer coatings ideal for a damp environment, available in a range of eleven wooden colours and six on-trend grey and white shades, meaning you can find your ideal colour at your ideal size and price.
They are both solid and functional choose from 38mm, 50mm & 63mm slat sizes that provide a light, airy atmosphere.

When deciding on your choice of slat width you should consider that the larger the slat the more light enters the room when they are set in the open position, this also creates a smaller stack when raised. Conversely, if you choose a larger slat size then less light will enter the room when in an closed position.

Fauxwood venetian blind technical information:

Please note: if ordering wooden venetian blinds and your order is for the blinds to be made Exact, then the blind headrail will be provided with wooden returns to go with the optional top wood cover valance. This is an optional extra that hides the blind's headrail and the ends.

It is your choice if you use them or not, simply trim to size if not required. You would only use the returns if the blinds were to sit outside the recess free of window returns, and obstructions. The blind itself will not change in size only the wood valance.

If you decide not to use the returns, then simply cut the valance square to the width of your head rail with a small tenon saw.

Ordered as BLIND SIZE (EXACT): blind made to your exact width and drop given*(see note), will include brackets at ends, for blinds with end fixings.
Ordered as RECESS (INSIDE MOUNT): we deduct 10mm from the width given, will include brackets at ends, for blinds with end fixings.

Our manufacturing tolerance on both width and drop +/-3mm.

*Note: customers ordering venetian blinds should note that due to the nature of the manufacturing process involved, exact drops cannot always be achieved, and small tolerances due to ladder spacing's must be expected. Made To Measure Blinds can assure our customers that our production operatives take both optimum operation and aesthetic considerations into account when producing your blinds.

Consideration needs to be given if the intended use is for mounting a wooden blind over doors. We provide a chart at the foot of this page that shows approximate stack sizes, allowances would need to be made for the bracket location above the door to allow sufficient head height, secondly it would be considered that the raise and lower operation would generally be used less frequently than the slat tilt operation, as regular use of the raise option on a daily basis over doors for a blind that consisted of a large width and drop would put an unreasonable amount of wear and tear on the raise and lower cords that could cause the cord to fray, it is also important to maintain the full open angle on the raise cord lock when moving the blind up and down, as improper use can also cause cord to fray. We would not recommend the use of a wooden blind over a door if it is intended to be in constant daily use.
