Improve Your Space with Bamboo Shades

As you look around your home, you may feel like your window coverings need a little something extra. Consider woven fibers if you’re eager to achieve an earthy look and feel. One trendy type of woven shades or woven woods is bamboo shades. They are popular–and for the right reasons. Not only do they filter light, but they are also visually interesting because of the unique fibers. Let’s take a moment to introduce you to our Provenance Woven Woods collection that are bound to add dimension to every space. 

Balancing Current Trends and Classic Elements 

Bamboo shades are not new to the interior design world. However, their beautiful woven design elements are getting some well-deserved recognition from homeowners. Interestingly, bamboo shades have operated as both roman shades and roller shades.

Their evolution, while low-key and graceful, has brought stunning design changes when it comes to the materials and the fabrics that are being used. Commonly known as “matchstick blinds,” these types of window coverings have been a part of the roman shades and roller shades categories over the years. Various types of woven textured shades can either be roman or roller. Explore our Alustra Woven Textures collection to see the options that are available to you.

Distinctly Woven 

A fun fact about bamboo shades is that they don’t just come in one specific type of fiber. There are many options to choose from such as grasses, reeds, woods, and bamboo. The distinct weaving techniques provide a one-of-a-kind pattern that is special to each collection of woven woods. You’ll see that the texture is what brings dimension and warmth to your space.

The Power of Liners 

Did you know that bamboo shades allow you to customize the lining you have? This comes in handy if you are looking for room darkening or light filtering. An added benefit is that the liner can be attached or operate on its own, depending on your preference. If you’re interested in adding secondary cellular shades that promote energy efficiency, take a look at Duolite® dual shades.

More Motorization. Less Hassle. 

Depending on the time of day and the weather, your desire to see the view outside your home varies. Having adjustable window shades is ideal because you can transform the atmosphere of your home. Now, motorized shades are an excellent choice if you want to have a set schedule of light and privacy. Thus, it makes changing the look and feel of your home a breeze.

Favorite Features

Numerous features make bamboo shades stand out. You can establish a cohesive look in your home by having the same shades on your windows and doors. Before you start to think about those interestingly shaped windows in your space, bamboo shades can also be tailored for bay windows and angled windows. How great is that? Another feature of these shades is that they are available in a top down bottom up style. This is where you can enjoy the natural light coming from the top while maintaining privacy.
