Why Use Bamboo for Your Walls

Looking for a way to add a unique look to a structure you are planning to build in your yard? Adding bamboo instead of wood offers a unique and fresh element to your home. You can also use bamboo products to bring natural beauty to the interior design of your home, using our various bamboo wall ideas as your guide.

Bamboo on the wall adds a decorative accent to your interior and exterior. Whether you are redesigning your patio or adding an accent wall to your bedroom, bamboo is a great option for you.

If you’re looking for a natural, exotic look to your home, bamboo is a smart choice. Bamboo is eco-friendly, cost-effective, and sustainable. Designing your home with bamboo also adds a unique aesthetic.

Here are some qualities of bamboo that show why we make walls out of bamboo.

Bamboo on wall
  • Affordable: Bamboo is more affordable than many other materials because it is widely accessible and simple to manufacture.
  • Attractive: Bamboo is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Instead of blocking your view in your backyard like other materials, you can have the moderate privacy you crave while experiencing the natural elements of the world around you. While bamboo comes in a variety of natural colors, you can also stain it to add your own unique style.
  • Convenient: Bamboo is relatively easy to install, especially since we sell our bamboo paneling in rolls. Because it is light, it is easy to transport and easy to mount on your walls. You will save time on construction projects by preparing, decorating, repairing, and maintaining your wall with moderately less effort.
  • Durable: When harvested properly, bamboo can last for years, depending on your home’s climate conditions. Bamboo is water-resistant and has a greater strength-to-weight ratio than steel. Bamboo is also earthquake-resistant due to its ability to bend under pressure. For added durability, Forever Bamboo offers a sealant finish that can prolong the life of your bamboo walls.
  • Eco-friendly: Bamboo adds oxygen to the environment. While manufacturing other wall materials may require harsh chemicals, bamboo is harvested in an environment free of pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals. Bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than trees. Bamboo also consumes a large quantity of nitrogen, a gas that may cause water pollution. If bamboo eventually deteriorates, it does not create pollution. Instead, the waste from bamboo can be used as fertilizer or charcoal.
  • Sustainable: Bamboo can grow in almost any part of the world. The material needed for bamboo design can be harvested without killing the whole plant. Bamboo plants can mature after three years and can regenerate quickly, growing as rapidly as 35 inches a day.
  • Versatile: Bamboo can be used to design walls, furniture, décor, and more. Its physical characteristics make bamboo the perfect material for all types of temporary and permanent constructions. Besides bamboo on wall, the material also works well with other construction materials, so it will not conflict with your current home setup.

Caring for Your Bamboo Wall

Although bamboo is water-resistant, try to keep it as dry as possible. Clean bamboo with warm water and oil soap only. Where you applied the bamboo, such as in the bathroom, will determine how often you clean it. For extra protection, add a stain or paint to your walls once the bamboo and the adhesive have completely dried.
