The Right Balance: Trending Vs Timeless
It seems that everyone is now discovering the beauty of woven shades. But it’s important to note, that bamboo shades are nothing new. Woven woods have been a staple in homes for decades. They’ve also been available in two of the most popular types of window shades-rollers & romans. Let’s explore how they’ve evolved over the years.
Remember “matchstick blinds”? They were popular in the 60s & 70s and gave off a groovy vibe. Today’s wood blinds have evolved gracefully. This transformation has brought incredible design changes–all thanks to the fabrics and materials used in their manufacturing. Bamboo shades are part of the roman shades family, but other woven textured shades can be found in romans or rollers.
Bamboo shades are crafted using bamboo of course, but most of these shades are made from a variety of natural fibers, including reeds, grasses & woods. The different materials result in numerous unique patterns, resulting in a one-of-a-kind look. It’s their texture that brings warmth and dimension to your home. Available in a variety of weaves and color-ways, your custom look is right around the corner.
Light Filtering, Room Darkening & Energy Efficient Liners
Bamboo shades allow us to customize the needs of a space with your choice of liner. Whether you prefer light-filtering shades, room darkening shades or anything in-between, there is a liner available to help with your comfort and privacy. To control the light, a liner can be attached to the back of the shade or it can operate independently as with the Duolite® dual shades option. This secondary shade supports energy efficiency too.
Simplify Life with Motorized Shades
Automated shades make adjusting the atmosphere of your home a piece of cake. Go from wide open view of your landscape, to an intimate dinner setting with the touch of a button or voice command. Motorized shades can also be scheduled to adjust according to your family’s needs. Motorization is available for your bamboo shades, and there’s no better feeling than effortless control over the look and feel of your home.
Top Features of Bamboo Shades
Along with the obvious benefits of heightened style, warmth and texture, woven woods can offer a number of other features homeowners are searching for. First, the option of coordinating a look by covering your doors, windows or both with the same textured materials. Another offering is that woven woods can be tailored to fit specialty shaped windows, like bay or angled windows. In addition, these shades come in both vertical or horizontal to accommodate sliders and other large windows.
One of the most popular features is the top down, bottom up option. This type of shade allows clients to keep the bottom portion of their windows covered while they enjoy natural light and treetop views. Do you have a favorite feature?
