Bamboo Shades - What to Know Before You Buy

Bamboo Shades Features

Bamboo shades, or woven wood shades, bring an essence of natural beauty into any home. With no two bamboo or woven wood shades being the same pattern, these shades will accent your home with unique style. Even better, these shades are environmentally friendly and are created with renewable resources.

Woven wood shades also bring privacy and light control while still allowing natural light to enter a room. With the option of adding blackout liners or light-filtering liners, you can tailor the amount of light control with bamboo shades.

Bamboo Shades Upgrades

Interested in upgrading your woven wood shades? Consider these optional features for further customization:

  • Cordless Lift: This popular option provides a hidden control system that eliminates the lift cord on your bamboo shades and enables the shades to be easily raised or lowered with the touch of a finger.
  • Top-Down/Bottom-Up Controls: A very popular option that allows your bamboo or woven wood shades to be raised and lowered in either direction to allow for customized light control and privacy.
  • Continuous Cord Loop Controls: This option means the cords on your woven wood shades will be secured to your wall or window frame. A great choice for larger/heavier blinds.
  • Motorized Lift: With a motorized lift upgrade, your woven wood shades can be raised or lowered at the push of a button.
  • Liners: Choose from blackout or light-filtering liners to get the perfect light control for your bamboo shades.
