Bamboo Blinds - Adding An Exotic Touch To Any Home Decor

Aug 17, 2007
Choosing the right decor for your home can be a thankless task, especially if there are two or more people trying to agree on the same thing. As far as window blinds are concerned, this is an area that can cause a few arguments. Have you ever considered the addition of bamboo blinds to your home's window dressing?

Bamboo blinds offer an inexpensive way to spruce up even the dreariest outlook and environmentally, they are the "ants pants." So where do you start looking? The internet of course! A simple search will get you a ton of results and while the only drawback is the fact you can't touch and feel the product, sticking with the best known and more reputable companies should see your net shopping experience become a satisfying one.

Bamboo Blinds - What's Available?

Depending on whether you're after traditional Japanese blinds or prefer the non traditional product, the choice is extensive. Japanese bamboo blinds are woven together in very thin shafts and pricing depends a lot on the way they are put together. Hand woven blinds may cost you a little more that machine produced product but the end result is quite stunning and many people decide the extra cost is worth the effort. This is not taking anything away from the latter.

Creating a look and feel in the home at affordable cost is the aim with bamboo blinds. Can they be drawn up or down? Sure can. With roll up blinds, the slats again are quite thin and depending on how much light or how much privacy you desire, are extremely user friendly.

Bamboo blinds and shades have certainly been enjoying a rise in popularity in recent years and it's not hard to comprehend why. Apart from their inexpensive nature, they offer a wide and diversified natural texture while the choice of colours is quite fantastic. The fact that bamboo does offer so much in the way of texture and color variety may be the only drawback shopping for it online. Keep in mind that when looking at samples online and there is a color that takes your fancy, be very specific when choosing and make it clear to the supplier exactly what you want. It could be that the green color that took your fancy so much in the sample photo may in fact alter slightly by the time the product is delivered to your home.

Environmentally, bamboo has many advantages over rival materials. The fact it can reach maturity in less than six years makes it the ideal building material. Unlike traditional hardwood trees which can take up to and in some cases, over a century to mature, bamboo speeds up the end users delayed gratification process.

While bamboo offers plenty of durability and toughness, always be clear with your supplier about the warranty process. While a lifetime warranty may be rare, be sure to check this important aspect and either an extended or limited lifetime warranty should be sought. This is just part of your due diligence process and while warranties are normally part and parcel of these type of business transactions, it doesn't hurt to check.

All in all, bamboo blinds will bring a little exotic decor to your home. As for looks, they will in most cases enhance any surrounding areas appearance.
