Bamboo window blinds have been around for a long time. The raw material has been used for a variety of decorations for centuries. There are a number of options available to you for use in developing the window treatments you want. Let us look at some of these options, and see if they will work for you.
Bamboo Blinds Styles
Because bamboo can be fashioned in slats or sticks, there are several Woven wooden blinds styles available for this type of blinds. The first is the roll-up style. This style allows the blinds to clear the window completely when closed. Partial closure can be achieved by varying the amount of roll-up, this can be varied as you see fit.
Another style to consider is a Roman style bamboo shade. This style folds in a pleated fashion when raising and lowering. This style works well with a liner, and can be easily operated.
While we have discussed indoor applications so far, bamboo window blinds are also effective for providing outdoor decoration and shading. If you have a porch or patio which gets a lot of sunlight, consider a roll-up bamboo shade to provide relief while still promoting an open outside environment.
Many colors to choose from
While bamboo is a light colored wood, there are many color variations which can complement the room colors where you would use these blinds. These different colored woods can be used in combination to produce a richly varying appearance.
Develop a plan for your installation
Careful measurements are required to ensure that the bamboo window blinds you select will fit into the window spaces in your home. The mounting hardware should be of top quality, since these components will experience the most wear and tear. Check the warranty on your blinds to make sure that the warranty is still valid if you do your own installation.
