Today, natural products are a popular choice with consumers. We choose to use recyclable materials and more eco-friendly products. Bamboo is a trendy choice in window treatments just now because of its natural properties, versatility, durability, and low cost. You can choose from several types of bamboo window treatments including woven, roll-up, Venetian, matchstick, and Roman, to name just a few. Bamboo window treatments offer privacy, insulation against cold and heat, are truly easy to install, and they fit inside of most window frames so that they don't appear heavy, as drapes tend to do.

You may be surprised to realize how lightweight bamboo window treatments are. Even if you have a stacked set of Roman-style bamboo shades, they are about one-third the weight of other types of Roman window shades. Because they are so lightweight, bamboo window treatments are easily moved from one area of your home to the other, and will not damage hanging mechanisms.
