Bamboo is a renewable and biodegradable resource which you can use in your home to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Bamboo makes an attractive, elegant, trendy and stylish decoration. Bamboo can fit into any decor. From the very traditional to the ultra modern, there is always place for bamboo.
·       Bamboo Floors - Give your floors a designer-savvy appeal while you do your part to save the environment with flooring materials made from a sustainable natural resource. Bamboo planks come in a variety of brown and gold based tones. Natural colored bamboo floors will cast a beach effect; while, carbonized color resembles oak. You can also opt for processed bamboo floors which are available as short laminated strips, planks or tiles. Since bamboo floors tend to get scratched easily, avoid dragging heavy furniture over them.

·       Bamboo Furniture - Bamboo furniture gives a casual elegant feel to any room. Bamboo furniture is durable and resists rot, moisture and termites, which makes it well-suited for use both indoors as well as outdoors.

·       Bamboo curtains and blinds - Bamboo is an ideal option to use as wall coverings especially in the summers as bamboo cools the air that comes in.
·       Bamboo Accessories - There are many bamboo accessories that you can use in your house. Bamboo lamps and mirror frames are a great option to infuse the look in your living space. You can use bamboo screens to divide various areas within your home. Use bamboo sticks within your house to bring the outdoors in. According to those who believe in feng shui, luck and prosperity flows into a house with bamboo.

·       Bamboo and the outdoors - Because of its sturdiness, bamboo is an ideal material for decorating an outdoor space. Bamboo can be used an option for fencing around the house. It can also be used to create a beautiful wall to divide an area or to hide unpleasant sights in your backyard. Pick up patio furniture made from bamboo and make sure you coat them with varnish or lacquer before you put them out. You can also plant bamboo plants around the periphery. They not only look amazingly beautiful but also create a privacy screen. In addition to all this you can add bamboo birdcages, rugs and lights to further add to the look.
