Bamboo Blinds & Bamboo Shades

Woven bamboo blinds and ‘Matchstick’ shades originate from a long tradition in Japanese window coverings.

Bamboo has been used widely since ancient times as an interior design element in many Asian countries. It is environmentally friendly and can be harvested within two years of planting without killing the plant, providing a plentiful supply.

Modern technology has improved on this ancient window treatment design to enhance any room with a traditional and stylish decor.

Crafted by weaving thin shafts of bamboo together; the joints and outer bamboo skin are stripped for a smooth finish.

Roll-up bamboo blinds offer an affordable and attractive window treatment to accent your home decor. The slats on roll-up blinds are quite thin, enabling ease of rolling, so that the woven patterns can be used to vary the light and privacy as desired.

Bamboo Shades

Roman shades made from Bamboo fold into layers when you roll them up or down, offering a different style from typical blinds. Bamboo blinds and shades are also made in many other styles, sometimes using long, wide bamboo slats in horizontal or vertical blind styles.

You can order bamboo blinds or shades in a wide variety of sizes and shipping cost is usually minimal, making them ideal online purchase. Or, have your Bamboo blinds custom made to fit any window in your home perfectly.

Installing Bamboo blinds is a good do-it-yourself project, with a cordless drill, tape measure, pencil, screwdriver and step ladder being the only tools needed in most cases. Be sure to check measurements and level carefully when marking for bracket installation.

Or, if you have a lot of windows in need of shades, you may want to check with local installers for a deal and save yourself a few hours.

Bamboo shades give natural warmth to any room; living and family rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms or kitchen. Bamboo also has natural fire repellant qualities.

Combining traditional design, available in many styles, with a natural texture, bamboo is more durable than plastic or thin metal shades.
