What You Should Know About Bamboo Window Coverings

Bamboo window treatments look absolutely amazing. They’re easily going to be one of the most popular window coverings of the upcoming decade and judged by their share-ability on platforms like Pinterest and Instagram, they may even take off beyond designers’ wildest imaginations. Before you buy a set or two for your home, though, there are a few things you may want to know about bamboo window coverings.

  • Go for Quality: Part of the drawback of the popularity of bamboo window coverings is the fact that they’re absolutely everywhere. Not convinced that’s actually a drawback? The problem here is that the bargain bin choice is literally sitting next to some of the best quality bamboo shades you’ll ever find in the online marketplace, and many people are seriously tempted by those cheaper prices. If you’re going to choose bamboo shades, you’re going to want to select the quality option over the cheap one in an online marketplace. The reason for this is pretty simple. You want a choice that’s easy to clean, one that will last, and one that’s going to look great in your home, and you’re only going to get that if you go with a high-quality version.
  • Think About the Options Before You Buy: They’re just bamboo blinds. There aren’t that many decisions to make, right? Wrong. Bamboo blinds mean lots of choices. It starts with textures and colors. You can’t imagine how many textures and colors are out there until you start shopping. Wide slats. Light colors. The integration of other natural fibers. Coastal style. You’re going to come up against lots of choices to make, and the key is to not go into analyzation mode and spend days trying to select the right ones to meet your needs. Go into this decision with some sense of what you want before you get started. Think about the tones that are going to work best with your home. Think about the fibers that will look great with your current décor. Sure, you’re still going to have lots of decisions to make, they just might be a little easier when you’re sitting down with one of our helpful team members.
  • Consider a Liner: Bamboo shades offer serious light filtering capabilities during the day. At night, though, you’re going to find your privacy compromised if you haven’t ordered yours with a liner. You don’t have to go with something heavy like a blackout liner, but this is really the best option if you’d ever like to have privacy in your home at some point in the future.
  • Learn About Cleaning: After you’ve ordered your bamboo blinds but before you actually hang them in your windows, be sure to do a bit of research about keeping them clean. They’re probably going to be the easiest window coverings you’ve ever had to clean as they typically just need a quick wipe down with a microfiber cloth, but because there are so many different material options, take some time to learn more about how to clean your bamboo shades and what to expect when you do.
