5 ways to use bamboo in your home

Bamboo is one of the most versatile eco-friendly materials available. As a fast-growing grass, it is an easily renewed, very sustainable resource. Even though this is a major factor contributing to bamboo’s popularity, there’s no denying the appeal of its warm natural aesthetic, which can be adapted to suit a countless range of styles.

Having used bamboo in many of our design projects, here are just a few suggestions of brilliant ways to use it in your home.

1. Decorative panels and screens

Decorative bamboo screens and panels work wonderfully in virtually any space, and come in many different shapes, sizes and styles. Some panels feature bamboo canes embedded in protective resin whereas others are made from eco-friendly bamboo paper pulp, but most are moisture-resistant and very low maintenance, making them ideal for bathroom spaces. For a really all-natural look, thick mature bamboo canes can be fitted from floor to ceiling to create a unique room divider.

2. Eco-friendly blinds

Although bamboo blinds and window shades have a naturally delicate appearance, they are known for their resilience and durability. They are also easy to clean, and thick enough to offer all the light control and privacy you need. Today, bamboo blinds are available in an extensive array of styles and colours, so they’re the perfect eco-friendly covering for windows of all sizes.

3. Durable flooring

Offset with clean, light-coloured walls, bamboo flooring creates a fresh, natural look that opens up any room. Bamboo floors are also surprisingly strong, and can be as durable as the best hardwoods. However, not all bamboo floors share the same structural integrity or eco-friendly qualities; for example, certain species of bamboo are stronger than others, and not all treatments are environmentally safe. It’s therefore recommended that you consult with an experienced eco-friendly designer before fitting your home with bamboo floors.

4. Natural accents

Having one or two accents such as bamboo-framed mirrors or bamboo coffee tables can be all you need to infuse a space with a laid-back, summery feel. Thanks to bamboo’s neutral tones, these types of accent pieces work well with most aesthetics and can therefore be reused no matter how often you revamp your home’s décor.

5. Sustainable countertops

Whether you’re aiming for a cosy farmhouse kitchen or a crisp culinary space filled with gleaming stainless steel, bamboo countertops complement a wide variety of styles, are low-maintenance, and are typically resistant to moisture and heat.
