Interior decorators are utilizing bamboo shades and blinds more than ever, and for a variety of applications. First of all, Bamboo Shades look great, and are available in a variety of materials and patterns. SelectBlinds also offers a 2” Bamboo horizontal blind for those situations where a 2” horizontal blind is the style that you want for your window treatment, but the standard wood blind or faux wood blind just doesn’t give the look that you are after in decorating your room.
Bamboo Shades offer a tremendous range of light transparency. There are bamboo shades that give you the privacy of a window shade, yet allow enough light to filter through to gently bathe your room with a soft glow. These bamboo shades are great for use in formal living rooms, or rooms that are not used a great deal, but you want to have the windows covered with a stylish window shade. Light Filtering Bamboo Shades are also an excellent choice to install in conjunction with a drapery. The exotic bamboo shade patterns can really dress up a rather plain looking drapery.
Bamboo shades can also be ordered with room darkening or blackout liners. These shades are ideal for bedrooms and media rooms. They still have the same rich look from inside the house, but these bamboo shades have a solid cloth material facing the street. If you live in a neighborhood with an HOA that requires a white or off-white street facing window shade, then these are a great way to decorate your home with the latest window fashions and still satisfy the requirements of your HOA.
Bamboo shades are also a great window treatment as a door blind or door shade. Because they are mounted close to the frame, with a very small clearance, they can be mounted as a door shade and will hang close enough to the door that they will actually fit under most door handles.
