Are you tired of your window blinds? Have you wanted to try something a little more unique in choosing your window coverings? There are many choices you can choose from when you are looking for window dressing, but how will you choose? Part of your choice is going to be your home decor, while the other is your budget. Bamboo window blinds are a unique yet budget conscious way to accent your home.
Bamboo window blinds come in two different styles with a variety of colors. Most people think of bamboo as being green or light tan. This is true, but with the technology we have today it is also possible to die the bamboo to any color you wish it to be so that it fits in your home better. Once you have determined the color of the bamboo window blinds you may be limited in style or you may still have the offer of both styles.
You may choose to have both styles in your home depending on the rooms. The first style is a roll blind. This means you roll the blind up and secure it with straps rather than having a string that brings the blind up. This style is for less formal rooms, such as sunrooms or an area where you don’t want your kids to get a hold of the blind strings of the other style. The other style is called venation. This is your typical blind with the strings bringing the blind up. They tend to offer more ventilation than the other bamboo window blinds and offer a more elegant look to any room.
Any type of blind is important to keeping the sun out, but you don’t have to sacrifice taste for your budget. Bamboo window blinds offer you the uniqueness and tropical look you have been looking for. They come in a variety of sizes so you can usually find the correct size without having to special order them. If you have an older home you may need to place a couple of special orders, but you will still be able to find the blind that fits your home with ease. Installation of these blinds is also very easy. You simply need to read the instructions and make sure you have some basic tools.
If you are unsure if you will be able to install the blinds you can find a contractor who will be willing to install the blinds for you at minimal cost. Most of the time it takes a few minutes to install a blind so they will charge you by the hour, most usually their regular fee. You may also see if the hardware store offers installation. It is a good idea to compare pricing for installation before making a decision.
Bamboo window blinds are a great addition to any home. You may decide to start off with a green hue while realizing the exposure to the sun will eventually create a beautiful golden hued blind. The style of blind and color of bamboo window blind will be your choice.
