In this article, Awnings, Blinds, and Shutters by Albert’s South Jersey Wallpaper – conveniently located in Haddon Heights, New Jersey (NJ) – is here to help you learn how you can bring organic beauty into your living space with natural shades for your home. We also carry a wide selection of awnings and exterior shades.
Window treatments crafted from organic and sustainable materials have a unique way of bringing the feel of nature into your home. Bamboo blinds and woven wood shades made from grasses, reeds, bamboo, and jute make a beautiful, environmentally friendly window covering that can filter sunlight and create a warm, calming ambiance in your home.
Light Filtering & Blackout
When it comes to natural shades, the possibilities are endless. If you’re looking for an option that filters direct sunlight without looking heavy, woven wood shades do an excellent job at filtering light and create a warm ambiance. If you need a window covering that can block out light, blackout and room darkening liners are available on most woven wood shades. Bamboo blinds let light in when the louvers are open and can block out the light when closed.
Texture and Warmth
The texture that comes only from woven woods and grasses has a unique way of bringing the feel of nature into your home. There are endless options when it comes to colors and textures, which allows you to choose a window treatment that complements your décor and adds visual interest, all with a designer look.
With textured wallpaper accent walls, often made from woven natural materials, making a real comeback this year, designers are choosing complementary woven wooden window treatments to balance the look and blend with contemporary styles.
Natural shades top the list of the most environmentally friendly products available for your home. The materials used to create these woven wood shades and bamboo blinds are renewable resources that are sustainably grown and harvested. Unlike products made from hardwoods, metals or petroleum byproducts, woven wood shades are produced from plant materials that grow quickly, with a very small ecological impact. By comparison, natural hardwoods take decades to mature in carefully managed hardwood forests to attempt to minimize the impact on delicate eco-systems.
To avoid these costs, manufacturers of reasonably priced consumer products are often forced to source their hardwoods from other countries with developing economies and fewer restrictions. You are truly doing a good thing for the earth by choosing window treatments made from ecologically sourced renewable materials.
Reuse and Recycle
Unlike traditional window treatments made from modern materials, if the time comes that you want to replace these shades, bamboo shades are fun and easy to repurpose. If you decide to throw them away, the natural materials decompose much faster than plastics and have a much less detrimental impact on the environment than modern materials.
