What to Consider When Buying PVC Blinds

close up of PVC blindsWhen it comes to window coverings, wooden blinds are often considered the warmest, most genuine addition you can make to your home.

However, there are other budget-friendly ways of achieving the wooden look. Just make sure you assess your options and talk to a blinds specialist.

In this article, we’ll be looking at PVC blinds and what you need to consider when exploring this great alternative to timber.

 Stylish Designs with PVC Blinds

If you want the warm, beautiful look of wood without taking a chunk out of your savings, consider installing Artwood PVC blinds.

Artwood blinds are artificial, timber-look blinds that are manufactured out of PVC – they are painted to look like timber but are only a fraction of the cost.

They give you incredible control over how much light is allowed to enter the room and, when open, barely obstruct the views through the window.

Unlike timber blinds, PVC blinds are resistant to bowing and twisting while offering the same gorgeous timber look and feel.

Another huge benefit of these blinds is their low-maintenance cleaning requirements. They do not need to be washed and can simply be wiped over with a cloth occasionally.

 Environmental Sustainability and PVC Safety

PVC products produce very few carbon emissions as they are manufactured sustainably and can be recycled. The materials involved are 57% chlorine so their impact on the environment is slim.

Additionally, the insulation properties of PVC are high, helping you save on energy prices in your home.

Having high chlorine content means PVC blinds boast excellent fire-retardant properties, removing one more worry when it comes to the protection of your family and your home.

Other Advantages and Considerations

PVC blinds offer a range of other advantages, ticking all the boxes for window coverings in your home. Choose PVC for:

  • Great privacy options
  • No twisted or warped panels
  • Excellent solar reflection
  • Easy cleaning
  • Safety for young children

Keep in mind that PVC can be damaged by overexposure to UV rays or air pollution. If you wish to install PVC, assess the area and make sure the window you choose is not exposed to extended periods of direct sunlight.

You can also consider adding a sunscreen blind closest to the window side to lessen UV exposure and protect the quality and appearance of your blinds.
