The integration of bamboo into any home or commercial decor offers a distinguishing aesthetic due to bamboo's natural and understated properties.
One of the most frequent questions we receive is, "How do I add bamboo to my current home decor?" While we've extensively covered how bamboo fencing can be used indoors or outdoors to cover an old fence, accent a wall or create a privacy screen, we wanted to show you 5 other ways to incorporate bamboo to any current home decor.
Whether your decor is rustic, classic, modern or zen, Bamboo blinds are inexpensive and add a very understated and relaxed accent to your decor. Bamboo blinds are woven to allow the soft penetration of light to add a bit of warmth to any room, and can also be creatively paired with your favorite curtains or window trimmings.
Perfect for the individual who wants to add an organic articulation to the home without the attention required for real plants.

Create a Unique Centerpiece
Bamboo truly does have an infinite amount of possibilities. If you have extra large round bamboo poles around, you can cut them at different lengths and use them to create a visual landscape for a corner table, desk or dinner centerpiece. Simple accents such as flowers, herbs, smooth rocks or shells, can be cupped in the center and add a little bit of style to a setting.
