Not only do bamboo and woven-wood blinds create a warm atmosphere in any room, they are also an eco-friendly choice for the environmentally aware homeowner, as bamboo and woven-wood are a recognised renewable source. With their very natural appearance bamboo and woven-wood blinds create a calming atmosphere and softly diffuse light from outside. Bamboo and woven-wood blinds are equally at home in both modern and more traditional homes, offering both functionality and a fashionable appeal. Many people do not realise that bamboo blinds are handmade from totally natural material, which adds to their charm. As such is it usual for variations and imperfections in the material of the blinds to occur.
Luminos bamboo and woven-wood blinds are available as either a roller blind or as a Roman fold style blind and are all hand made with close attention to detail and quality integral to the product. Panel blinds can also be made from bamboo and woven-wood materials.
Ever conscious of chid-safety all Luminos bamboo and woven-wood blinds are supplied as standard with either a solid
brass or antique brass cleat. The blind cord can then be neatly wound around it out of harm’s way.
Accessories and Options
Luminos bamboo and woven-wood blinds are fitted with a standard matching wooden headrail and strong cord controls enabling ease of use when raising or lowering the blind, operated by a simple pull cord with a wooden tassel. To ensure that your bamboo and woven-wood blinds do not fray, Luminos edges these blinds in a strong twill tape coordinated to the material you have chosen.
Whether you select a roller or Roman bamboo or woven-wood blind, you can choose to cover the standard wooden headrail with a fold over valance in the same material as the blind, or a pelmet in a coordinated wood, giving a perfect finish. If you add a valance or pelmet, high quality cord guides or a cord lock can be added.
Motorised Bamboo and Woven Blinds
Both the roller and Roman version bamboo and woven-wood blinds can be operated using a motorised system from a wall switch, remote control or programmed control system, which may be integrated seamlessly with a home automation system. Luminos is proud to offer this option in association with Somfy, a world-leader in such systems.
The bamboo and woven-wood blinds can lift and drop via remote control and it is also possible to programme the blinds to react automatically to the sunlight and temperature in a room, protecting you, furniture and plants against the harmful effects of the sun, whilst providing effective temperature control.
More info on Bamboo Blinds
Bamboo and woven-wood blinds can be used in almost any room in the house, but there are some points to consider when selecting a bamboo or woven blind:
- When considering a bamboo blind for a bedroom, if you are a light sleeper you may need to get a blackout or room dimming liner to complement the blind
- Kitchen and bathroom. As bamboo or weave is a natural, living product, if it receives a lot of moisture it may shorten the lifespan of the blind. Ideally bamboo or weave blinds should be kept out of moist areas and are better positioned in larger, well ventilated kitchens and bathrooms
- Living areas. The main consideration here is the privacy factor and you may need to select a bamboo or weave blind that has a greater degree of blockout or look at adding a privacy liner
- As these blinds are completely handmade, hand-woven and hand-dyed, imperfections and variation in weaves, colour and slight warping are considered normal
Luminos blinds are made to stringent quality levels and undergo rigorous testing, giving you peace of mind. Luminos’ bamboo and woven-wood blinds are guaranteed for 2 years against manufacturing defects, excluding fading.
