Bamboo is a great plant that can supply a lot of materials for many different products. This renewable resource is also helpful for the earth and the environment because it is not derived from synthetic elements and can be renewed or replanted. Bamboo is often used to make bamboo window blinds.
They are ideal for windows because they can actually allow privacy but at the same time not cut off any air flow since the bamboo is porous and the natural grain of the bamboo allows for air to go between slats or between strips of woven bamboo window blinds and shades.
Bamboo window blinds may seem too casual for some people to be used for formal rooms. In actuality, the design of the bamboo window blinds often dictates what kind of ambience it delivers. The raw bamboo blinds are often reserved for outdoor uses or for rooms that are informal or casual.
Raw bamboo window blinds are often made up of slats of uneven bamboo strips about an inch or so and these are the very simple types of bamboo window blinds. Outdoor bamboo blinds can be very useful in areas where people do not wish to be seen or when the sun is too hot such as the patio or the lanai.
On the other hand, some of the bamboo window blinds can be the epitome of formality if they are designed well and colored in such as way that they complement the room they are installed in. Designs and colors are usually muted or single toned with little or no frills and decorations at all that will break the elegance and simplicity of the design. The simple and elegant design of the indoor bamboo window blinds can suit formal rooms as long as the colors and design matches that of the room.
Other Uses Of Bamboo Window Blinds
Bamboo window blinds can also be used as room dividers. They are especially useful for this purpose because they can shield some parts or areas of the room which the owner does not wish to be seen but at the same time, if the owner needs the extra space, he or she just need to roll up the bamboo window blinds and, voila!, instant space. They can also be used to cover the glass on the doors. These can serve as door blinds especially for doors with little glass window in them.
