Venetian blinds are a staple of the modern home, softening our living spaces, introducing colour and texture, filtering natural light, and helping to frame and highlight our windows and the view beyond.

The House Beautiful team are of the unanimous opinion that a room is incomplete without some well-considered window treatments, and our fabulous new bamboo Venetian blinds have become one of our most popular collections to date.

Available exclusively at Hillarys, the range includes six natural finishes designed as an affordable and sustainable addition to the modern home

'The sustainable features of bamboo make it the perfect option for blinds. It's a really strong material and has an incredible lifespan,' says Sarah Keady, Style and Interiors Director at House Beautiful.

Lightweight, durable, and versatile, bamboo is a naturally sustainable material for blinds that will stand the test of time. Our blinds have a wood grain texture and are available in six stylish brushed and stained finishes.

Bamboo at a glance:

  • Bamboo can grow to full size in just three to four months, compared to standard trees which can take 30+ years. It can be harvested each year, providing an abundance of sustainable material.

  • Unlike a tree, bamboo regenerates from its roots so there’s no need for replanting.

  • Bamboo is often named ‘green steel’ for its versatility and strength.

  • Bamboo has a natural antibacterial property.

  • The bamboo we use in our collection is ethically sourced, and stored in recycled packaging.

Our bamboo blinds have been designed with thinner slats, which means a smaller stack and a better view when the blind is raised – a practical stylish solution to light and privacy control throughout the home.

Suitable for any room, we particularly love the look of the Glacier white bamboo blinds in a modern country kitchen, the natural Honey in a moody forest green home office, and the bright Seashell finish in a neutral, Scandi-inspired living room.

The whole collection is available to buy now at Hillarys.
