One of the things I’ve had a TON of questions about on Instagram lately is my bamboo blinds! We’ve been busy little bees installing these all over our new house throughout the last few weeks and we’re just about done now. We still have a couple windows left to do, but I wanted to share a full review in case any of you are interested in getting bamboo blinds for your home. Mine are from SelectBlinds and that’s where I bought them from for our last home too! I actually reached out to them and they were wiling to give me a coupon for you guys. You can use SJBLOG to save 5% off your order and it even works with any sales they’re having too. And FYI–they’re having. huge sale today and tomorrow!
What kind of blinds did you order?
I got the premier bamboo blinds in the color maize. This is what I had in our last home too (remember the window seat?!) and I LOVE them.
Did you get the privacy lining?
YES! The lining is a must for me. It not only gives you lots of privacy, but the main reason we get that is because it adds a lot of warmth in the winter months. That lining really helps keep the heat in! There is also a black out lining option, which I’m sure is great too.
Are bamboo blinds hard to install?
Not at all. It does take a little bit to figure out how to do it, but SelectBlinds has great instructions on their website and their customer service is amazing. My husband can typically do one of our large windows in about 20-3o minutes. And it gets faster the more you do!
Did you get the motorized lift?
We didn’t find it necessary to get the motorized lift for our blinds, but we did do the cordless lift option. We didn’t do that last time and I really regretted it. The cordless design is kid-friendly and safe, which is super important if you have little ones in your home! Plus the bamboo blinds are still easy to pull up and down, and there’s no fussing with the cord. Highly recommend!
Are bamboo blinds worth the money?
Yes, yes, yes! Bamboo blinds are definitely a bit of an investment, but I feel like they are 100% worth the money. We love them. Especially during the winter months when it’s freezing out, it’s SO nice to be able to close all the blinds at night. The house just feels so cozy and warm. Plus it’s amazing to be able to get blinds custom made for your specific window size. From tiny to large, they can pretty much accommodate any size. And the quality is great. We haven’t had any issues at all with our blinds. I know they’ll last forever!
Here’s a few shots of how they look closed:
