Why Woven Wood Shades Are Almost Always The Right Choice
When decorating your home, the biggest mistake homeowners can make is leaving your windows bare. Having decorative yet functional window treatment can make or break the impression you’re trying to make for your home. If you’re in the market for window treatments in your existing home or for a new home, woven wood shades may be the right choice for you. Eco-friendly, beautiful, and high-quality, woven wood shades can spruce up your living space while providing you the privacy and personality you want for your home!
Woven wood shades, commonly known as bamboo shades, are window treatment coverings designed with the environment in mind. These all natural, sustainable coverings can be made with a variety of materials, including bamboo, reeds, and grasses and are fully customizable, available in an abundance of colors, textures, and styles making them a great option to complement both casual and elegant decor. Woven wood shades have many operational features to suit your needs such as:
- Cordless lifts that provide a hidden control option, enabling the shades to be lowered and raised with the touch of a finger. Not only is it convenient, but keeps pets and children safe from tragic accidents.
- Motorized lifts allow shades to be operated with a button.
- Continuous cord loop control, perfect for heavier window coverings that are attached to the wall or window frame–allowing cords to be hidden, giving them a seamless, classic look.
Woven wood shades provide ample privacy, depending upon the style you choose. While still allowing light to filter through you have control on who can see into your home. For additional privacy and to adjust noise level, reduce light, and to regulate temperature, woven wood shades are perfect for layering with other window treatments. Blackout shades, window panels, and drapes can all be combined beautifully, giving you the decor style you want with the comfort you need.
Maintenance and Cleaning
A fairly low maintenance option for your home, these shades can be dusted with a soft, microfiber cloth or duster to remove dirt and dust. Finding a material that won’t snag the texture of the shades is important to preserve the style and longevity of the covering. For heavily textured shades, using the soft-bristled attachment of your vacuum to clean them is the quickest and easiest option. For heavy-duty spot cleaning, dampen a sponge or microfiber cloth and apply to the stained area, taking care to not use too much water to avoid warping the shade. Apply minimal pressure and scrub. When the stain is lifted pat dry to soak up excess water.
Woven wood shades can be used both indoors to give your space a natural, airy feel. Bamboo thrives in wet, tropical environments and while not waterproof, many styles of shades are water resistant, making them an excellent choice for exterior use.
Many window treatment options are created with plastics and use a lot of energy and natural resources to manufacture. With woven wood shades, they are made with natural fibers and dyes, helping reduce the impact on the environment. Additionally by using sustainable, renewable resources during production, we reduce our carbon footprint one pair of shades at a time.
Woven wood shades can bring a natural yet dramatic look to the rooms in your home. Fitting a wide range of decor styles, these shades will spruce up your space and complement furnishings you already have. As well as making a design impact, woven wood shades will provide you and your family the privacy you expect.
