Not all room decor requires the use of curtains and when you need a new and modern look in a room, you may want to consider a stylish bamboo Roman shade. You can easily install the shade yourself and it will match just about any style you may have.
Stunning bamboo shades are carefully woven to filter the light in a warm and appealing way
Update your home decor with these attractive shades
Blinds are made with real bamboo and other environmentally friendly materials
Woven wood shades are easy to clean with a feather duster
This bamboo shade is 25-74 inches wide (+/- 1/8 inch), and the hardware may add to the width slightly
For an inside mount we recommend ordering a shade that is at least 1/4 inch smaller than the inside width of your window frame
This is not a privacy shade, light will filter through the shade
This shade is beautiful. Look at the small picture for color, and note that the shade looks like a checkerboard pattern of small squares. The area inside each square is completely see through. It filters our view to the outside, but affords zero privacy. It is a great decorating accent to the room, but I will will try to put some good old fashioned window shades behind it for privacy at night. I don't want to add a liner, because the light filtering aspect of the shade is very pretty during the day.
We had priced bamboo blinds (exactly same pattern as these, but different color) for our sliding glass doors and kitchen window from several sites and big box stores. Unfortunately, the "ready to hang" big box store blinds weren't long enough, and the custom blind option from brick and mortar stores and sites were outrageously priced. Luckily, we stumbled upon these blinds at Overstock and it saved us hundreds of dollars!
Our only dilemma was that O.co had the right width, but what they had in stock was too long. Problem was solved when we learned that shortening the bamboo blinds is a pretty easy task, so we took the plunge and ordered 3 of these blinds and shortened them to the perfect length, hung them, and voila, custom blinds at a huge savings!!! They look fantastic!
We struggled with the decision about what color to get since we have dark wood furniture in our living room and kitchen, and although the color of these blinds is light...closer to pine wood, they do have flecks of dark brown throughout, so they actually tie in well with dark brown wood furnishings, yet lighten the look of our home. The blinds look beautiful, let in the sunshine, and allow you to see outside, but they kill the glare. They give such a warm beautiful feel to our spaces. We love them.
The only con, is that the large blinds, even after being shortened to 80" are quite heavy, making them a bit difficult to raise. Not a big deal, but we do wish the pulleys were a little smoother.
If you have honey or light wood, they would match perfectly, and if you have darker woods like we do, they blend nicely too. Go for it, and save yourself a bundle!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is more yellowish (very close to the color of unfinished pine) than beige (as it appeared on site).
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is good. The edges could have been cut better, but overall, quality is fine, especially for the price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Quite accurate
Well made for the price. I ended up not using the hardware to install since I had the bare minimum of width to fit my window. I nailed the support bracket directly to my window well, which seems to work. If you need to use the brackets, they'll be too wide if your window is exactly 27" wide.
