PVC or 'faux wood' venetian blinds are a less expensive option than shutters while offering a similar look. They can be used on their own as an attractive window covering to provide privacy and light control. They can also be teamed with curtains and roman blinds to create a complete window dressing combination.
Made from PVC, these venetian blinds are better than timber venetians in areas of high humidity (eg. bathrooms) as they are less prone to developing mould.
However, PVC blinds are heavier to pull up and down than real timber so it is recommended that they remain in the lowered position and are just operated by opening and closing the slats.
