Bamboo Roller Shades are versatile, elegant window covers used in kitchens and bathrooms. They provide privacy and protect against heat, keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, create a stylish aesthetic in any room of the house, and are easy to clean.
However, before you go out and buy bamboo shades for your home- here’s what you need to know:
8 Things To Keep in Mind About Bamboo Roller Shades
1. Bamboo is an Eco-Friendly Option
Tens of thousands of bamboo plants are cut down annually to make room for more bamboo. Since they grow so quickly, they can be harvested every three years without harming the bamboo plant population, making them a green alternative to wood or plastic shades.
2. They are Natural and Stylish
Because they’re made from shredded bamboo, the texture of your roller shade will be different than that of a roll-up blind, vinyl, or faux wood blind. Custom roman shades have a unique look and can be finished in different colors for a completely custom finish.
3. They’re Easy To Clean
Wipe down with warm water and soap; if you need a deeper clean, they are also machine washable. Since they are made from natural fibers, you won’t need to use chlorine bleach when laundering them. Always air dry your Bamboo Roller Shades when you remove them from the washing machine, which should take about an hour to dry.
4. They Last A Long Time
Because they’re made from natural materials, your roller shades will always look beautiful, no matter how often you wash them. And because they’re not easily damaged by sunlight or moisture, you’ll be able to enjoy them for many years. Each blind is made to last for a decade.
5. They’ll Darken the Room
Bamboo is a green material that holds its own in sunlight, so your roller shades won’t allow any unwanted light through the window during the day. Because each shade is handmade, the size and height of the roller shades will be slightly different than each other. If you have one size or another in mind, measuring your window opening before purchasing is best.
6. They’re Easy on Your Wallet
If you love the look of bamboo so much that you want them for every window in your home, you can save a little more money using synthetic shades made from acrylic yarn instead of raw bamboo leaves. Bamboo Roller Shades start at about $100 for a set of two.
7. They’re 100% Guaranteed
All of the products sold at Shades of Light are backed with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, which means you can enjoy your Bamboo Roller Shades in peace, knowing that if they don’t work out, you’ll be able to get your money back. However, most customers love their shades and rarely return them.
8. Installation Is Easy
You’ll be sent a step-by-step installation instruction sheet when you order your cane shades. And since these shades are made from 100% natural materials, they’re very sturdy and should fit your window easily with just a few adjustments.

The advantage of this type of bamboo roller shade is that you can open and close it manually rather than depending on a motor to roll it up and down. If you are afraid your motor will stop working, this is probably the best type of roller blind which has no motor and can be operated by hand.
