Do you want to address design and privacy issues in your home but don’t know where to start? You may want to begin by choosing the right material. In this case, a bamboo privacy screen could be your best choice. Here are some of the reasons why.

 

Choose Bamboo Privacy Screens

 

1. A Bamboo Privacy Screen is Sustainable

Compared with hardwoods, bamboo is easier to grow. Since it is actually a grass and not wood, it is easier to grow bamboo after it is harvested. Bamboo materials used home improvement projects can be easily regenerated in a shorter time.  It is environment-friendly so you can improve your home’s design and privacy without worrying about the environmental impact that your choice may bring.

 

2. Blocking Off Areas is Easy When Using a Bamboo Privacy Screen

With bamboo, you’re sure to get the privacy you need whether you’ll use it outdoors or to separate rooms inside your home. There is a wide selection of bamboo privacy screens and you can find those that are spaced closely to completely block views. There are also bamboo privacy screens that are designed to allow air and light to still pass through.

3. Bamboo Privacy Screens Won’t Limit Your Design Preferences

Bamboo has a natural charm that can easily blend well or even enhance any theme or design. Aside from its natural colour, there are also bamboo privacy screens with a wide variety of stains. With these options, you’re sure to meet your design and customisation preferences while getting the privacy you need.

 

4. A Bamboo Privacy Screen is Low Maintenance

With a bamboo privacy screen, you won’t be burdened with high maintenance costs. You can make the most of it to improve your home’s design and privacy while keeping maintenance costs low.

Here are some of the basic maintenance tips for your bamboo privacy screen:

  • Perform regular inspection to check for links that need to be tightened or posts that need to be secured.
  • For a bamboo privacy screen that uses metal brackets, inspect for signs of corrosion. Treat with a lubricant to prevent the formation of rusts.
  • Stain or seal the bamboo privacy screen upon installation to increase its durability.
  • Restore the waxy layer of a bamboo privacy screen by adding a sealant that can bring it back to life.

5. Bamboo is the Less Expensive Choice

Aside from sustainability, a bamboo privacy screen is a more affordable option. The materials are inexpensive. Aside from that, it requires easy installation so you can finish your home improvement project on your own, and there are ready-made bamboo privacy screens that can be set up without using expensive tools or requiring skilled help from contractors. Overall, this means greater savings for you.

Traditional Bamboo Modern Architecture

Reinterpreting traditional materials with Modern Design

As far as sustainable and natural materials go, bamboo is one of the most impressive. It’s fast-growing, durable and can be used in a myriad of ways (not to mention it’s three times stronger than steel). In fact, Architectural Daily even called bamboo the ‘construction material of the future’ because of its sustainable and versatile characteristics.

A growing trend in the world of architecture and design over the past few years has seen organic pole bamboo elevated to new heights. From Europe to Asia, industry leaders are turning their attention to reimagining how we view and use bamboo in the modern age. This is especially important as we look towards building and supporting global initiatives that will adapt to ongoing climate change concerns.

As a result, bamboo is taking centre stage in a range of commercial and residential builds in new and exciting ways, by using a combination of contemporary technologies and traditional techniques.

Ceiling Design

Through the clever use of pole bamboo suspended from the roof, designer Nattapon Klinsuwan has been able to both connect and divide the different serviceable areas in this Bangkok hair salon. Using a layered approach, the ceiling waterfalls down to ground level, helping to define the space and create a warm, welcoming feel. This design also addresses interior styling considerations, as the space is complete without the need for interior design additions.

Experimental Design

Not one to be confined by traditional design and structures, Realrich Sjarief from R A W Architecture created a whimsical, dreamscape design for a residence in Indonesia. The design separates the steel plane truss roof structure and uses thousands of bamboo poles to make up a three-story building. The hero of this project is the curved façade, featuring multiple columns of bamboo, some fanning out towards the sky in a cathedral vault style. The curved nature of this design is replicated inside, which is also made entirely of bamboo.

Architectural Screening

The use of pole bamboo in screening and fences has been popular for decades, however, now the full extent of its design possibilities are beginning to be explored. Wallflower Architecture + Design have recently used pole bamboo screening as a beautiful functional design element to wrap around a residential abode in Singapore. Not only is bamboo screening adaptable for Singapore’s tropical climate, but by using it in this way, the residents reap the benefits of filtered light and air flow during the day, and stylish privacy at night.

Structural Elements

Traditionally bamboo has been used to create low-cost homes in mainly rural areas, and recently high-end designs at the other end of the market, however, Malaysian architect Eleena Jamil believes bamboo should be seen as a ‘modern and everyday construction material just like bricks, steel or concrete’. Her proposal is to use bamboo to build permanent and comfortable contemporary homes in suburban areas by incorporating bamboo into the entire structure of her bamboo terrace homes. This includes using it for load bearing walls, balconies and roofing in an aesthetically pleasing and economical way.
