Some rooms, if they have a tropical theme, are ideal for displaying bamboo furniture and exotic prints and patterns. Bamboo has a beautiful natural look, and its rod-like shape would seem to make it an ideal choice for hanging curtains on. However, real bamboo tends to split easily, so unless your curtains are made of especially light fabric, you may want to go with faux-bamboo curtain rods. You get the look you want with added durability.

The look of bamboo is becoming quite a trend in the world of furniture design, and it is easy to see why. Bamboo has a beautiful natural tone that is neither too fancy, nor too commonplace. A bamboo media console is a great way to integrate this beauty into a room while still being a functional piece of furniture.

The use of dried bamboo poles as materials in fencing or decorative structures is an aesthetic choice that needs to be thought of more for the look than the functionality. Apart from the wear and tear on bamboo poles from Mother Nature, dried bamboo poles tend to crack easily, which, depending on their intended usage, may not be such a good thing in the long run.
