Everyone loves the summer. The warm weather, the flowers in the garden, the days spent sitting on the lawn. But sometimes the summer does bring with it a certain amount of discomfort, and that is when the sunlight pouring into a room makes the heat and light a little too much to handle. When that’s the case, the best thing to do is fit some window coverings to curtail the effects of the sun, and one of the most popular ways of doing this is to install some bamboo window blinds.
These style of window covering is available in many designs and models, but one of the most useful, in terms of ease of fitting and ease of use, are bamboo vertical blinds, which can add a very oriental appearance to a room. As the name suggests, these blinds can be raised or lowered to a height which feels comfortable, either blocking the window entirely or obscuring part of the window in order to allow some view of the outside. They can be a great choice for the lounge, but also work well in kitchens and bathrooms.
Wooden venetian blinds of the best aspects of this type, is that they have a cool room darkening attribute. Even when the blind is fully lowered, a certain amount will pass through, especially if the bamboo is loosely woven. This gives the best of both worlds: a blind which makes the room dark enough to be comfortable, while providing pleasing light patterns on the walls and ceilings.
It also needs to be remembered that some bamboo blinds are available in finishes other than the natural wood, and carry vivid colors. This means they can be used to add a splash of color to rooms, and are especially suited to kitchens and bathrooms. Whatever the color, they make a perfect privacy blind, giving privacy while allowing some light to filter through.
