If you already have ordinary plastic blinds and you are thinking about upgrading, this product from Lewis Hyman is worth a hard look. These exotic bamboo blinds are influenced by traditional island styles, yet they are also quite interesting and stylish.
You don’t have to be a handyman to setup these blinds. All you need is a few basic tools. Installation is quick and simple. All the extra pieces you need to install these blinds are in the box.
Natural materials — This product doesn’t contain any manmade plastics, only bamboo and other natural materials.
No need to buy additional hardware — You don’t have to buy extra hooks or nails.
It won’t turn your room into a dark cave — These blinds absorb heat while also allowing a bit of ambient light to seep in.
Helps cut utility costs — Bamboo is a natural insulator / sunlight reflector.
Easy setup — The installation instructions are clear and simple. Setup takes less than 10 minutes.
The opening/closing mechanism is well made — Some cheap blinds snag or get stuck when you try to open or close them, but these blinds are responsive and easy to use.
These elegant, well-made bamboo blinds look far more expensive than they actually are. Also, the design is unique and different compared to other bamboo blinds. Another thing we liked about these blinds is that they are super easy to open and close.
These blinds don’t do a good job at preventing outsiders from looking into your home.

Not So Good For
If privacy is your main priority, you may want to go with a different product.
If privacy isn’t an issue, it’s hard to find better bamboo blinds than these. The open and close mechanism works flawlessly and the design is attractive and unique. The only downside is that these blinds are somewhat translucent. It’s possible to see through these blinds, even when they are drawn.
