When buying bamboo shades you will get to choose from the option of several neutral tones and textures that are more subtle than bold. You can also get bamboo window shades custom made by some manufacturers, which is particularly ideal if you have windows of a more unusual shape or size. While the natural bamboo color is of course brown, some manufacturers do offer other color options such as grey, black, beige, blue, black or gold. If you want the shades to completely block out all light you can get features like lining options.
