Bamboo Blinds for Your House or Apartment?

By: Paul Duxbury

It's quite easy to bring a touch of the outdoors indoors by adding stylish bamboo blinds to your windows. Made from all natural materials, bamboo blinds come in a wide range of styles and shades which will compliment just about any room.

Bamboo Blinds are made with a variety of grasses, jute and reeds which are woven in with the bamboo, The blinds can range right through from pale colored to dark, burnt colored wood. If you want a truly natural finish then the edges can be left raw or you can edge them with some fabric tape for neatness. Generally speaking bamboo blinds come in two opening styles either the roman-fold type or the roller style.

Another option you might want to consider is that bamboo blinds can come either lined or unlined. Given that the weave can be quite loose, an unlined bamboo blind will let through a great deal of the daylight and therefore will provide only partial privacy. Whereas a lined blind will do the opposite and will effectively block out the daylight and provide almost complete privacy.

You will find that bamboo blinds are available from a wide range of outlets. Custom fit bamboo blinds are quite easily affordable starting from as little as $20 for the smallest windows but becoming more expensive as the size of the area you want to cover increases. So you could perhaps be looking at somewhere in the region of $400 - $500 to cover the patio doors. However for patio doors they can be the perfect solution for a neutral colored, simply decorated room leading out into the garden. Check out your local home accessory store for good deals, or try some of the online blinds stores which you can find on the internet by simply keying "bamboo blinds" into your favourite search engine.

Many people still prefer to buy something like bamboo blinds in a "real" store, however, don't forget that the blinds websites contain handy measuring guides to ensure the right fit when out buying your new bamboo blinds. They'll also show all the various types available so you know the choices you have in choosing your bamboo blinds.
