Some Benefits of Bamboo Blinds

Provenance Bamboo Shades by Hunter Douglas

If you are looking for some form of blinds or curtains for your rooms then there are many different options available to you. You can of course get regular curtains, net blinds, roller blinds, shades and many other forms to let you control how much light gets into your room. However with bamboo roller blinds you will get a huge number of benefits and this is one of the most versatile and attractive options there is for your consideration. That then, is what we shall be looking at here.

Bamboo blinds are drawstring blinds that are of course made from bamboo wood rather than plastic or carbon fiber. They can be pulled up or dropped down using the chord and at the same time the angle of the horizontal 'slats' can be altered. This right away gives them the benefits of other roller blinds, which is to give you the greatest number of options regarding your lighting. In this respect, these kinds of blinds are almost the equivalent of dimmer switches allowing you to gradually increase or reduce the amount of light that comes in. You of course can pull the roller blinds down to any height and so cover only a portion of the window - ideal if you want to just prevent glare. Alternatively though you can have the blinds down, but then alter them in order to let in several thin shafts of light which is not only highly atmospheric but also gives you a useful 'half way' point between letting the light in completely or completely shutting it out.

This makes the roller blinds ideal for the kinds of situations in which there is too much light but you don't want to completely shut yourself away. If it is a very nice sunny day but you unfortunately find yourself having to stay cooped up to work, then it can feel hot and claustrophobic if you completely draw a pair of curtains and mean you aren't making the most of the day. With roller blinds of any sort you can pull the blinds down so that you don't get the glare on your computer screen, and so that the room doesn't get very hot (they will provide excellent shade), but at the same time you can let in some of that natural light that makes you feel fresh and energetic. With the window open behind the blinds you can enjoy the fresh air too.

Bamboo blinds in particular are ideal for this. Part of the reason for this is that they look natural and they are thick enough to completely block the light where it hits it. Plastic slats are often left wanting when trying to block the rays of the sun meaning that it can be hard to sleep if it's light outside, and meaning that some light still gets through only muted. With bamboo the shady patches really are shade, and the natural look and feel makes a room far more wholesome feeling. Bamboo is also a highly resilient and very good quality wood, meaning you can rely on it not to deteriorate right away forcing you to replace your blinds.

These are just some of the advantages of bamboo roller blinds. For more on roller blinds Melbourne, or to find flyscreens Melbourne, visit the links.
