For decades, bamboo has been used as a staple in Feng Shui by interior designers and Feng Shui practitioners. Bamboo is believed to be “lucky” because in Chinese the word prayer sounds similar to bamboo. Some believe that by adding bamboo to your home you can achieve powers and increase the power of prayer.  You can add different items of bamboo in your home, like the ever-popular lucky bamboo plant, but adding bamboo window shades is an easy way to incorporate this peaceful plant with style. So start off this summer right and Feng Shui your home with bamboo shades from Budget Blinds®.

What are Bamboo Shades?

Bamboo shades are made up from 100% organic, eco-friendly materials such as bamboo, reeds, jutes and grasses to create an exotic, chic shade. They come in a variety of natural wood hues and different styles such as Roman shades, roll-up shades and tandem styles to add texture in any room. The materials used in the bamboo shades are naturally grown which means there will be differences in the shape, thickness, texture and grain. This allows for sunlight to peak through and that’s why liners can be added to have complete light control. With the liners, bamboo shades can become energy-saving by keeping your room at a comfortable temperature by blocking heat during the hot summer months. Bamboo shades can give you the best of both worlds with top-down/bottom-up operation, allowing sunlight in while maintaining your privacy.

Benefits of Bamboo Shades

Bamboo shades are a beautiful window covering that can benefit your home:

Durable: Bamboo shades are durable since they are made from a substantial material, yet they are extremely flexible. They are a long-lasting window treatment that is built to withstand fading and warping.  They will hold up against any weather conditions including extreme sunlight.

Eco-friendly: If you are looking for a window treatment that is kind to the environment, a bamboo window shade is the answer. This organic treatment is both beautiful and “green”.   

Unique: Bamboo shades can be used to create an exotic ambiance in your home. Also, since bamboo is a natural material, there are a variety of colors to choose from to match your existing décor.

Energy Saving:  Bamboo shades can help you save money on your energy bill because they offer insulation. Bamboo shades sit close to the window, stopping heat from entering or escaping the room.
