Bamboo blinds solve the problem of admitting light and air into a room while still preserving privacy. These attractive blinds have long been a favorite for informal areas. Today, they are also gaining popularity as a window treatment made from a renewable resource.

Roll-up bamboo blinds work on a simple rope-and-pulley system. An updated form of roll-up blinds leaves no rope hanging loose to endanger children and pets. It is possible to purchase bamboo blinds that roll down from the top as well as up from the bottom, allowing a very precise control of light.
