Bamboo For The Home

My dad brought back from his recent trip to Hawaii a bamboo cutting board for us!  It is not only functional, but really pretty.  The brand, Just Bamboo, says that bamboo is harder than Maple and is a natural antimicrobial.

This got me thinking about the other ways I have heard of bamboo being used in the home.  Bamboo is now used in flooring, rugs, window coverings, and even sheets and bedding, towels, and other furniture and decor items!  Bamboo is growing in popularity because it replenishes itself much faster that trees.  Here are a few lovely pictures I uncovered while checking out the bamboo wares:

 The bamboo floorings come in a variety of colors and finishes.  I love this dark one!

These cabinets are made of bamboo.

These sheets are made of bamboo.  The bamboo keeps germs away! This set comes from Bed Bath and Beyond- isn’t that color gorgeous!?

In the right room bamboo shades look great.  I had them in my childhood room and loved them!

And who wouldn’t love a soaking tub like this??
