Incorporating Bamboo Shades into Your Home

If you’re looking to incorporate a more earthy vibe in your home, consider adding woven fibers. Bamboo shades, also known as woven woods and woven shades, are growing in popularity. They easily filter light while adding visual interest to every space they are in. Let’s dive into the fabulous world of Provenance Woven Woods – the ideal window coverings that add a dash of dimension to your home. 

Trendy, Yet Classic

Bamboo shades might not be the newest trend to hit the interior design scene, but homeowners are realizing the beauty of woven design elements. Your windows are a blank canvas, and with natural woven fibers being such a huge style statement, it makes sense that woven shades are getting the recognition they deserve!

Over the years, many people referred to these as “matchstick blinds.” However, with ever-evolving changes over the years, we’ve seen many beautiful design shifts, especially when it comes to the materials and fabrics used. While bamboo shades are technically considered to be a part of the roman shades family, many woven textured shades can be either roller or roman. Explore our Alustra Woven Collection to see every option available to you in either style shade!

Distinctly Woven 

Did you know that bamboo shades do not just come in one fiber type? They are crafted using various natural fibers such as grasses, reeds, woods, and bamboo. The distinct weaving techniques create one-of-a-kind patterns. Thus, injecting your space with beautiful texture and dimension.

The Power of Liners

If you’re looking to filter light or be able to darken your room, we have a treat for you! With bamboo shades, you can customize the lining that you select to achieve any of the solutions. Also, the liners can be attached or work independently. Interested in energy efficiency? Take a look at our Duolite® dual shades option, which adds a secondary cellular shade just for this purpose.

While you love the view outside of your windows, we understand that there are times when privacy is preferred. Adjustable window shades are a perfect way to transform the atmosphere of your home. However, if you want to do this without thinking about it, motorized shades are for you. You can easily schedule when you want the light to enter your space or when you wish to shut it out. Suddenly, changing the vibe of your home is a breeze.
