The natural world never goes out of style, but it does occasionally have a moment of renewed popularity. We are currently in one such moment with the current wave of interior design trends. However, it can be difficult to incorporate nature into your home, especially if you find that you have a less than green thumb. Never fear, though, because there are plenty of ways to bring the beauty of the great outdoors into your home that don’t involve watering cans and plant food. It’s for this reason that Murray’s Floor & Window Coverings are here to tell you about adding bamboo accents to homes in Billings, MT.
Bamboo in Your Kitchen
Bamboo is a versatile material to be sure. In addition to being absolutely beautiful to look at, bamboo is also incredibly durable. Because of this, it is a natural choice when it comes to outfitting your kitchen. Bamboo is a popular choice for a variety of different kitchen instruments, including spoons, spatulas, bowls, and cutting boards. Bamboo’s durability means that these pieces will hold up to use and wear longer than pieces made out of similar woods, meaning bamboo will keep your kitchen stylish for the foreseeable future.
Bamboo at Your Windows
When you hear the phrase “bamboo window coverings,” you are likely thinking of wooden horizontal blinds. However, if you know anything about bamboo, then you likely know about its flexibility. Bamboo can be woven like a cloth, resulting in bamboo sheets, pillow cases, and clothing. However, we specifically love bamboo woven wood shades from Hunter Douglas. These shades are designed like a traditional roller shade, but rather than being made out of cotton, linen, silk, or vinyl, these unique shades are made from bamboo, grasses, soft woods, and other natural fibers. In addition to being beautiful, each woven wood shade from Hunter Douglas is ultimately unique, so you will have an inimitable piece of nature at your windows.
Bamboo on Your Floor
We have already covered how beautiful, versatile, and durable bamboo can be, which might have gotten you thinking about our next recommendation: bamboo flooring. In the same way that bamboo can make a durable cutting board, and a truly unique window covering, bamboo flooring is a fantastic alternative to traditional hardwood flooring. If you have ever worried about the impacts of incorporating hardwood into your décor, bamboo is the perfect choice for you. Bamboo is a rapidly renewing, responsibly harvested resource, so you can spend your time enjoying how bamboo flooring beautifies your floors without worrying about its impact on the environment.
Bamboo is truly a material unlike any other, and there are as many ways to bring bamboo accents into your Billings, MT home as there are rods of bamboo currently growing.
