Sheer bamboo shades allow enough light to brighten up the interiors in a subtle way.
Bamboo for kitchen cabinets may create a ripple of worry for most people. However, contrary to the belief that bamboo may deteriorate easily, this is quite an excellent material for its beautiful appearance and durability.

A natural hue is most suitable for the kitchen but you can also opt for a darker shade if stains are an issue.
