Use Bamboo Blinds for Green Window Treatments
Almost every green home owner these days is aware of bamboo and the impact that it can have on decorating with both beauty and durability. There’s bamboo furniture, cabinets and accessories of all types.
One of the most popular uses of bamboo is window treatments in the form of blinds. Not only are these unique and attractive, you know that you’re doing the environment a favor by using them.
There are various styles that you can choose from when it comes to bamboo blinds. They include:
- Roman Shades: This is the most common style of bamboo shades. The name comes from the way they’re lifted and lowered. They fold up into many little sections as they’re moved either way.
- Move Up Shades: These shades are pretty standard and roll up from the bottom.
- Matchstick Bamboo Blinds: The term “Matchstick” refers to how wide and overlapping the bamboo planks are. These are rather fragile but allow in more light.
- Board Bamboo Blinds: Made totally of bamboo planks woven together, these blinds offer more privacy and let in less sunlight.
Other choices you’ll get to make with bamboo blinds is the color. You’ll find a variety of tints and shades that you can customize to fit in with your décor. Remember that many bamboo shades will change color over time so you need to be ready for what the future color may be.
Most people like bamboo blinds for their homes because of the classic look they have. They’re also a favorite with people that care about the environment. It’s definitely a green way to decorate your home. Bamboo regenerates itself once it’s cut so it’s not a loss to the world.
