How to use bamboo blinds in ways that will make your home truly beautiful

If you live in a climate where the temperature is comfortable, bamboo blinds are a great way to get privacy while maintaining an attractive decor. Bamboo comes in a variety of shades, from nearly white/ivory to light or dark brown and green. It is durable, goes well with many decor themes, is relatively inexpensive, and is Eco friendly.

Since bamboo is so fast growing and requires no pesticide or fertilizer to farm it, bamboo products are sustainably produced. Bamboo blinds offer the perfect texture and pattern for window dressing in a room with neutral colors. They effectively block light so that you can sleep during the day, and provide privacy any time. Bamboo shades roll up easily, and last longer than blinds made of most other materials.

You can certainly use bamboo blinds in a room with an Japanese or Chinese theme. They’re a perfect match for decor items such as Chinese vases or Maneki Neko kitties or you can match them up with a small zen garden made of sand and rocks for a blissful corner where you can meditate or just relax.

That said, these shades are certainly not limited to Asian decor styles. The neutral tones of bamboo can work wonderfully in various settings and complements any design. It’s a great way to add an additional layer to drapes, allowing you better control of the light and can work on its own, allowing for some light to get inside. It’s a wonderful way to add natural light to a bedroom, while keeping your privacy.
