Bamboo roman shades are the newest decorating rage. They come in warm earth tone, are made from materials easily reproduced, look fantastic, and are affordable.
The shades give windows a warm and inviting look. They bring nature inside as they are made from strips of wood, jute, grass, reeds, and rattan. They allow natural light into the room. If you need more privacy or a room blackout shade for sleeping, the shades can be lined. Although lining adds about 30 to 40 per cent to the cost, they make the shades useable anywhere.
The natural bamboo roman shades come in a variety of textures and color tones. You will find one perfect for you. Because they are made from wood, they also provide insulation from the winter cold and summer heat. For even more energy efficiency, try bamboo insulated roman shades.
There are many ways to decorate with these wonderful and ECO friendly shades. You can insert each shade into a window sill. You can have the shade completely cover the window - sill and all. For a streamline appearance, an overhead rail that contains two or three shades and a valance works well. The binding on the continuous cord loop can be a neutral or a bold color, depending on your style. Prices can range from $25 to $800 depending on the size and quality of the natural bamboo roman shade. Widths vary be from 8 inches to 96 inches and the height from 8 inches to 120 inches.
To measure a window for shades inside the window sill, measure at the top, middle, and bottom for width, and measure at the right side, middle and left side for length. Take the smallest measurements.
For shades installed on the window sill, measure the window where you want the shade to go and add up to 4 inches to the width to completely cover the window and reduce light around the shade. Remember the overhead rail adds 3 to 4 inches to the height.
Cordless bamboo roman shades, also known as continuous cord loop, are a child safety feature. They eliminate the dangling cords that can trap a child. These are recommended on larger shades, as the lift mechanism is stronger. The additional cost of the continuous cord loop starts at $50.Popular manufactures include Savannah, Cabro, American Blinds, Prestige, and Hunter Douglas. Check out one of these today.
