Using bamboo as a product is doing the environment a favor instead of opting for synthetic, non-biodegradable and chemical-laden products. Bamboo is an eco-friendly material being a renewable resource in the environment. It is the fastest growing plant that easily replenishes after harvest. It also produces more oxygen and biomass making it a paramount agent in reducing carbon dioxide. More bamboos and there will be more help in fighting global warming. To add to bamboo’s eco-friendly qualities, its dense litter feeds the topsoil through its root system, which helps save water and prevents soil erosion. Talk about a wonder plant!
Bamboo is widely used for goods such as eating utensils and clothes. It is also a rich source of food. Because of its sturdy aesthetic qualities, bamboo also makes great decorative items.
Bamboo furniture is common in houses with a beach or natural theme. Conservatories, porches, patios and gardens are favorite areas to adorn with bamboo materials. Purchasing furnishings made of bamboo guarantee longevity as these are durable items.
As a decorative accent, bamboos also add appeal to a space. A few bamboo sticks displayed in a large vase is a creative alternative to a potted plant or a container of flowers.
If you don’t want to replace your furniture or go to the expense of buying new items or the bother of building your own, you could just buy some bamboo and attach it to existing pieces of furniture. It’s a great way to make a laundry hamper or cabinet door look more attractive, for only a small expense.
The easiest and least expensive way to incorporate bamboo into your home is by using area rugs. Rugs made of bamboo are available in different colors, sizes and styles. You can decorate every room in the house with this piece and quickly transform your home into a comfy, natural-looking place.
Bamboo rugs are great for high traffic areas in the house because they are so hard wearing. Also, since bamboo is naturally fire resistant, they are safe anywhere in the house, and these rugs are also an excellent choice for an outdoor area. Make sure that the rug you choose has a non-slip backing.
Finally, adding an impact to your home decor can be done through a bamboo room divider. A large space can be made into two separate areas by an attractive bamboo “wall.” Complement it with bamboo area rugs and the space will look very well put together.
