Maxxmar's wood blinds are perfect for someone who wants the style of a faux wood blind, but wants something a little nicer and a lot lighter.
Although they are a bit more expensive than faux wood blinds, they are still quite affordable. Style-wise, wood blinds punch well above their weight class. They are a great way to get something very attractive, yet affordable without looking like you went the "cheap route".
With a few control options available, plus many colors and decorative tape options, there's nothing "cookie cutter" about wood blinds - you can really put your own stamp on them.
