Bamboo Door Curtains For the Home

In designing your home, there are innumerable ways in which you can personalize your interior space. One such method that many people neglect to think of is using bamboo door curtains to cover open doorways rather than the more standard wooden or metal doors prevalent in most western households. This "touch from the east" will add an exotic feel to your home at little cost.

Bamboo curtains can serve the important role of covering the space of a doorway without having to go through the hassle of installing a standard metal or wooden door. Most people do not have the practical skills of a handyman and would be likely to have to hire one in order to install a door in their home. Bamboo door curtains, as opposed to standard wooden doors, are easy to install and most people will be perfectly able to install them in their home on their own with ease.

Bamboo door curtains are typically made up of beaded strands that hang down vertically covering the doorway. They work by hanging down and covering the doorway but because they consist of numerous strands of beads hanging next to each other, they can easily be walked directly through. They provide the privacy of a standard metal or wooden door while serving a more creative decorative purpose as well. They also provide easier access to a room than a standard door would and, in that sense, can add a sense of openness to the home that a solid door can not.

One drawback to bamboo curtains that you have to consider before installing them in your home is the fact that if you are using bamboo door curtains as your only means for covering a doorway, there is no way of locking your door. If you are the type of person who really enjoys the sense of security of a solid door for those moments when you want privacy within the house, bamboo door curtains may not be for you. On the other hand, if you are more of a social person who is open to the constant comings and goings of others then bamboo curtains may add a certain freeness to your home that you would enjoy.
