The Woven Look with Bamboo Shades

Bamboo shades, also known as woven shades or woven woods, are one of the hottest design elements you can add to your home. Their unique fibers and weaves of the fabrics set a warm, earthy vibe in your home. Providing visual interest and filtering light, bamboos are like art at the window. Let’s discover the possibilities of our Provenance Woven Woods collection…

What’s Trending & Timeless?

Textured shadings such as bamboo shades have been around for years, but we have seen an uptick in recognition recently, as homeowners scroll through social sites, wondering about these gorgeous shades. The beauty of woven design elements at the window can make a huge impact on the look of your home. That’s what makes woven woods timeless and trending!

Bamboo shades have evolved from the “matchstick blinds” of decades ago! This evolution has transformed woven wood shades into what we find today–incredible designs made of premium fabrics and intricate materials. Bamboo shades are part of the roman shades family, but note, there are numerous types of woven textured coverings that can be roman OR roller. 

Uniquely Woven

Because bamboo shades are crafted using a variety of natural fibers, including reeds, grasses, woods, and of course, bamboo, the results are one-of-a-kind. The specialty weaves, giving light to unique patterns, are specific to each of our woven woods’ collections. The collections bring warmth and dimension to your home and no collection is quite like the other. Available in a variety of color-ways, your home will have its own custom look.

Problem Solvers: Light Filtering, Room Darkening & Energy Efficient

An added benefit of bamboo shades is their customizable liners. Control the light from light-filtering to room darkening with the right choice in coverage. The liner can simply attach to the back of the shade or, for energy efficiency,  an independent secondary cellular shade can be added. This added feature is called Duolite® Dual Shade.

Motorized Shades Make Things Easy

Bamboo shades have evolved, but so have window coverings as a whole. Today, motorization allows you to make quick adjustments to your atmosphere with the touch of a button or voice command. Allow the view to the outdoors in the afternoon, but when night falls, draw the blinds closed for privacy. Motorized shades can also be set to a schedule and open and close according to your family’s needs. Incredible!

Favorite Features of Bamboo Shades?

Bamboo shades offer many features that clients are searching for, it’s difficult to choose a favorite. One is the option to cover doors, windows or both with the same materials for a cohesive look because woven woods are available as vertical and horizontal shades. Another possibility is the option to custom fit specialty shaped windows including angled and bay windows.
