Outdoor bamboo shade, the eco-friendly choice... Well, bamboo actually has quite a lot more going for it: how about natural UV protection, inherent insect and rot resistance, excellent weather resistance, and of course great prices compared to other wood products.
Bamboo is increasingly chosen for outdoor shade, and bamboo patio shades can take the form of the popular rollup shade such as the Radiance line. These bamboo porch shades come in a natural finish, and are manufactured by weaving together natural jute with bamboo slats.
Quality bamboo outdoor shades have the advantage of maintaining a balance between privacy and letting in the right amount of light. To block incoming natural light even further, lined shades will do so effectively. At the same time bamboo shades will also absorb part of the harmful incoming ultra-violet light.
The natural quality of the materials used can convey a rustic feel to the area where it is installed, and contribute to a warm, personal atmosphere where people love to come together.
Some bamboo shades are actually mixed with reeds and grasses, resulting in amazingly full and rich textures.
There is a wide range of bamboo shades available. The roll-up Premium Woven Wood Shades line has more than sixty color options to choose from. Then there is the Bali Natural Woven Wood Drapes range which offers more than twenty color variations. Apart from bamboo, this range also includes jute, grasses and woven wood.
Outdoor bamboo patio shades can generally be vacuumed and spot-cleaned with a damp cloth.
