Bamboo Curtains Bring Exotic Asian Flair To Any Décor!
Add Far East Style To Your Home With Bamboo Curtains
One great way to add exotic Asian style and texture to a room is to hang natural bamboo curtains. Whether you prefer a Far Eastern theme or a modern look that is earthy and natural, bamboo curtains add warmth and richness to any decorating scheme. Vertical curtains made of bamboo offer an airy, open feeling that is perfect for porches, decks, doorways and windows. Bamboo curtains may be unconventional choices for North American homes but if you open your mind to the decoration possibilities, they truly are valid alternatives to conventional drapery.
Bamboo Curtains Are Exploding In Popularity
Now that they have become a popular choice, bamboo curtains are being used in numerous aspects of home décor. Bamboo is extremely suitable for other uses as well, like blinds and flooring, as it adds a natural wood element without costing many thousands of dollars.
Bamboo grows amazingly quickly and is classified as a renewable resource, which makes it very affordable. Despite the low prices, bamboo curtains do not look cheap! They really make a room feel warm and homey.
Bamboo curtains are very different than the horizontal blinds that are so typical in many homes. Long strings of bamboo beads are attached to a long board and hang vertically. The beaded strings allow light in while also providing privacy for your home.
Often, you'll find bamboo curtains that are painted with Asian theme artwork or pictures to add some flair to the style. They are also available in natural finishes without paint, or are sometimes stained a dark color. It's easy to find something that matches your existing furniture or wooden accents.
Bamboo curtains are very durable and versatile in that you can use them indoors and outdoors. If you do hang them outdoors, be sure to take them inside in the winter months otherwise the will freeze and crack.
Hand Painted Bamboo Curtains Can Be A Work Of Art!
No one will mistake bamboo curtains for silk curtains and they are not particularly suited as thermal drapes, but they do have a style all their own. Hanging bamboo curtains give your interior décor the taste of the Orient, and a bamboo beaded curtain or a bamboo painted curtain, especially if set up as a bamboo door curtain, can certainly be a conversation piece in your home.
Bamboo beaded curtains and bamboo painted curtains can both serve as bamboo door curtains and in some cases don't even require bamboo curtain rods! In my humble opinion, a bamboo curtain is especially attractive when it is a bamboo bead curtain as it captures the allure and mystery of the Far East!
The Amazing Natural, Renewable, Beautiful Bamboo Curtains
In addition to being functional, bamboo curtains make a wonderful art piece or, when used to cover an entire wall, they can add texture and a feel of nature.
You'll find bamboo curtains at many online stores and home decoration shops. Check around for the best styles and prices to suit your home and budget!
