Looking to add new blinds to your home? Here are several reasons why I love bamboo blinds!
Today, I’m sharing all about why I love bamboo blinds. I know how hard it can be to pick the right blinds for a house… it’s hard work, with a lot of apprehension. To many a blind may just be a blind, but let me just tell you, no blind is ever “just” a blind. They have the magical ability of creating a cohesive flow throughout your home, as well as setting the tone for each space.
Window treatments are absolutely huge in the overall scheme of a home. Not only do they finish a room, but they also create optical illusions, often for the better. So, why are they often overlooked?
My philosophy on that question, is that we often under rate the importance of blinds and curtains. We can’t decide on the perfect compliment to the room, the windows stay bare, or mini blinds are installed. Let me preface this that there is absolutely nothing wrong with mini blinds. In several cases, they look wonderful. I’m just not a mini blind kind of person.
In our first house, we installed the traditional 2″ faux wood blinds in every room. And every two months I would be cursing my existence in trying to clean them all. Cleaning all of those slats isn’t something I particularly enjoyed, so when it came time to build our new house, I knew I was not going with those again. No thank you.
Instead, I chose bamboo blinds and my life was forever changed. Not even kidding.
Let’s take a look at both the pro’s and con’s of bamboo blinds, because even though I’m team bamboo blind, there are a few con’s that should be considered as well.
As you can see, I don’t have nearly as many “cons”. In my opinion, bamboo blinds are a perfect solution for most windows, but it’s all about what works best for you and your situation.
