Bamboo blinds have been making a resurgence in popularity in the 21st century. Bamboo blinds are extremely attractive in design and tend to be a huge hit with those who go for an Eastern look in their homes. They are typically made in a woven bamboo style that provides an oriental feel for window shading. It is a decorative and practical form of shading from the sun. Bamboo blinds roll upwards when they are kept allowing the user to have full control over the height of the blind. Typically used as an outdoor blind, bamboo blinds are known to be sturdy and can last for years with proper maintenance.
The main benefit of bamboo blinds is that they allow for proper ventilation, even when the blind is fully drawn down. The horizontal gaps in-between each slat allows enough air to pass through so that your room would not feel stuffy. Bamboo blinds are not inherently waterproof, however, a light PVC backing for weather sealing and privacy can be installed. They come in a small variety of colours to match the specific style. Our favourite is the all-natural bamboo brown colour. The other popular colour is the striped white and black, typical of colonial type houses.
Ease of Cleaning
Unlike Venetian Blinds or Vertical with individual pieces, Bamboo blinds can be cleaned quickly and efficiently with a cloth or a traditional feather duster. Bamboo can also withstand water so using water to wash it down is also possible.
Bamboo has always been known as a material of durability, and this is no exception for blinds. Bamboo blinds can withstand hard weather and sunlight which is why they are usually used in both indoor and outdoor situations. The flexible nature of bamboo also means it can take abuse if you have children at home or in harsh weather.
