There are a few things you need to know before making a commitment to our Bamboo Shades.
When purchasing bamboo shades or matchstick shades, remember that the colors and textures will vary. We use original products, including bamboo, which Nature creates. Every bump, each imperfection, enhances the beauty of our bamboo shades, finishing the atmosphere picturesque.
Since the matchstick Shades are ordered online and we do not perform in-home estimates, it is your responsibility for the measurements and style to be correct. If it is not, then it will take a great deal of time to re-make the order.
There are two types of bamboo shades: Light Filtering and Privacy. Light Filtering does exactly as it says, it allows light to seep into the room. Privacy Shades involve a liner that goes on the back of the shades blocking the light and providing the room with "privacy".
If you are unsure of the style and color, please request some free bamboo shades samples. Samples are a good idea because, although we try to be true to the color, each computer monitor will show the viewer a slightly different shade. Also, wood variations, in how the wood or bamboo absorbs the stain, might also change the color.
Each bamboo blind will amplify certain decors and rooms. For example, use Guadeloupe Tea or Guadeloupe Umber for sensuality and elegance. Generally, the darker shades will create a more refined character.
Lighter colors such as Bamboo Stick and Zig Zag Natural will "lighten" the room’s feeling.
The shapes of the bamboo will also heighten the room’s décor. Round gives the rooms a rustic and relaxed feel whereas square or flat touches on authority.
My favorite of our Woven Woods (Bamboo Shades) is the Guadeloupe Umber. Its dark color and both round and flat reeds creates an appealing tropical flare. It can be found under both Privacy and Light Filtering shades Group 3.
Our most popular of the Bamboo Blinds is the Rustic Madake (shown in the picture above). Visit Privacy Lining or Light Filtering in Group 1.
