Bamboo in Interior Decorating

As bamboo continues to grow in popularity as a versatile, renewable, and environmentally responsible alternative to hardwoods and synthetic materials in all sorts of applications, it is also becoming a very hot trend in interior decorating. Homeowners and interior decorators who are looking for distinctive and durable home furnishings from renewable sources are finding that bamboo is the perfect solution and manufacturers are responding by introducing new and innovative bamboo products to the market every day.

People that prefer the warm tones of traditional hardwoods in their homes but would rather not add to the growing worldwide problem of deforestation are finding that they can have it both ways by purchasing tree-saving:

The strength of bamboo compares very favorably to many grades of steel and the hardest of hardwoods to provide environmentally conscious homeowners a 'green' choice that not only looks great but is also very durable and resistant to wear. Homeowners are also finding that these bamboo home decorating products will not warp or cup as some hardwoods do from fluctuating air humidity.

Perhaps the most encouraging trend of all is that we are only beginning to discover how versatile bamboo is as a replacement for hardwoods in all sorts of home building and decorating applications. As we continue to search for ways to lessen our impact on the environment, bamboo may offer us the best chance to save our remaining forests so that future generations can experience the simple joys of a walk in the woods.
