Bamboo shades are a little like Clint Eastwood was in his younger days; tough, durable and they've got the look! Even better, they are an affordable alternative to more expensive traditional blinds and offer the versatility of being suitable for indoor or outdoor purposes.
Venetian Blinds and Wooden Venetian Blinds encounter a similar problem; there are essentially a number of slats overlapping the one next to it, allowing for light to come through. Although the normal venetians close tighter to the slat next to it than even the vertical blinds, its not tight enough to stop light coming through. Wooden Venetian are probably the worst slat type blind to block out light due to the thickness of the wood causing the gap to the slat next to it not intended to be tight closing.
Before you shop for your fabric, youll need to calculate the number of dowels and the amount of fabric youll need. To figure out how many dowels you will need, divide the window height by six to nine inches, which will be the space between each dowel fold. Youll need to find a number that goes evenly into your window height. For example, if your window height is 64 inches, divide by six. Youll then need eight dowels for eight pleats. Each dowel needs 1.5 inches, so multiplied by eight, youll need an extra 12 inches of fabric. Youll also need an extra six inches of fabric to mount the shade, meaning youll need 18 extra inches for this example. Add this to your window height to get your final height. Add two inches of fabric to your window width. Now you have the size of the fabric you need. Whew!
