Outdoor bamboo blinds are ideal for patio areas and decking. They are usually made from a lightweight material such as woven woods, reed, rattan and jute. They can provide a high level of shade and add a decorative touch to the area.
They are environmentally friendly, durable and can resist harsh weather conditions. Installing them is quick and easy as they do not require any special knowledge. All the hardware you require comes with them along with instructions.
Due to their natural looking appearance they fit well within an outdoor environment. These shades can be enjoyed from both inside and outside of the home. Plus they will give the home owner peace of mind that the neighbors can not see into the home.
When purchasing these outdoor bamboo window treatments there are two types of blind to choose from. The first is known as the roll up type, which rolls to open and close and is secured by straps at the top of the blind. The second type is the roman style blind which features straps that are used to fold the blind up.
These types of blind are ideal for people on a tight budget. They can create an exotic feel to the home. The natural color and texture of the blinds allow them to blend within any type of décor. They are available in a range of standard sizes. However, if the windows require different sizes then many companies offer custom made window treatments.
Bamboo window treatments do not offer 100% shade and privacy unless they have a blackout or privacy liner attached. The way in which the blinds are woven together creates small gaps between the bamboo slats. This allows small particles of light to enter the room.
If traditional window and French door blinds do not appeal then outdoors bamboo blinds will be a great alternative.
