Reasons to Choose Bamboo Blinds As Your Window Treatments


Switching up the window treatments in your home can seem like a daunting task when faced all the array of materials and types of window treatments you can opt for. The good news is if you are looking for something that is functional as well as aesthetically appealing, then you cannot go wrong with bamboo blinds. Not only are these types of blinds versatile, but they make a great addition to any home no matter what your interior décor choices are. Here are some of the reasons to choose bamboo blinds as your window treatments. 

Bamboo blinds are environmentally friendly

Over the years, more and more homeowners are taking measures to incorporate green living solutions into their homes so as to reduce the impact that they have on the environment. If you are looking for an eco-friendly option when it comes to window treatments, bamboo blinds would be a good choice. These blinds are manufactured from renewable resources, therefore, you can rest assured that you are not playing a role in the depletion of the planet's natural resources. Bamboo inherently has a fast growth rate, thus, the plants are harvested and replaced at a quicker rate when compared to other materials such as timber.   

Bamboo blinds are durable

Window treatments tend to be exposed to the elements to varying degrees depending on whether they have been installed indoors or outdoors. When you blinds are installed indoors, they still have to contend with heat from the sun as well as constant exposure to UV rays. When installed on the outdoors, your blinds have to be durable enough to withstand exposure to moisture, high winds and more. Materials such as timber do not fare well under these conditions as they eventually succumb to wear and tear in the form of buckling, warping and more. Bamboo blinds, on the other hand, tend to be resistant to moisture. Hence, you do not have to worry about placing them in rooms prone to wet conditions such as the kitchen or the bathroom. They also do not warp or buckle due to exposure to high temperatures, which works toward an extended life span.

Bamboo blinds come in an array of styles

Opting to invest in bamboo blinds for your window treatments opens you up to a range of style options for your blinds. Some of the designs you could consider include Venetian bamboo blinds, woven bamboo blinds that work toward blocking out all sunlight, matchstick bamboo blinds that let in natural light to filter through them when they are closed and many other options. This ensures that you will always find designs that will best suit your needs as well as aesthetic preferences.

Decorating and Your Home and Garden

Yo! My name is Lisa and I would like to welcome all you guys to my new blog. I was inspired to start this blog because I am tired of visiting people's homes and seeing the same old furniture and the same old designs in use. I used to have boring designs in my home and garden. However, all that changed when my friend Simon came to visit. Simon is a designer and property developer so he has a real eye for bringing out the best in any space. He gave me some top tips and helped me to transform my home and garden.
