Bamboo blinds has been widely used throughout Asia for centuries, but it has only recently gained recognition in other parts of the world. Its light and strong material may be the reason why bamboo window shades have become more popular.
Why do we choose bamboo blinds?
Bamboo blinds can amplify light and add dimension to a room, all while providing the same functions as traditional blinds. Bamboo blinds make them easy to maintain, install, and clean. What’s more, their natural element goes well with most types of decor from bohemian to trendy.
Let’s look at some of the benefits of choosing bamboo window shades for your window coverings.
Bamboo window blinds have many great benefits, one of which is their versatility. You can find bamboo blinds in three different shades: light, medium, or dark; these shades hide a whole range of natural wood shades that you can choose from. There is no doubt that you will find the perfect shade to complement your floor, furniture, or overall decor.
Additionally, bamboo blinds can be fixed to fit any window shape and are available in roman shades or the familiar roll-up style. Bamboo blinds can also add character to a home. From natural and simple to modern and chic, bamboo texture suits any style in any room of the house. Aesthetically pleasing, they add warmth to the room as light from the sun seeps lazily through the blinds.
Due to the “open/closed” effect of bamboo blinds, there are many questions as to whether these types of blinds provide privacy. The good news is that bamboo blinds can provide privacy. Attaching a blackout liner or shield can help block unwanted sunlight or outside exposure. This also means that it is safe to add bamboo blinds to your bathroom or bedroom.
For the inserts, you have the option to choose between black or white and slightly transparent or completely opaque inserts. Because bamboo blinds can naturally light up a room, with an insert you have control over the amount of light you let in.
Bamboo blinds are not only easy to maintain but also easy to clean. Just dust them lightly with a feather, about once a week; or 3 to 4 times if you live in a place that is dusty or sandy.
For deeper cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clean any cobwebs. For mold or mildew, soak the bamboo blinds in a tub of water mixed with oil soap, or vinegar; leave them outside (if you can) to air dry. With easy maintenance, you can spend more time enjoying your day rather than struggling to clean your blinds.
Bamboo itself can withstand long exposure to sunlight, making bamboo blinds extremely durable. The durable material of bamboo makes it a perfect choice for both indoor and outdoor use. If you decide to use bamboo window shades for your outdoor patio, make sure the bamboo material is mixed with weather-resistant components and not natural fibers. Choosing bamboo window shades for your patio is a great way to enjoy the sunlight while keeping your patio furniture from fading.
In addition, you can install bamboo blinds outside or inside your home, despite the regular dimensions of your window. So you can give the illusion of more depth or bigger windows if that’s your style!
