Bamboo decor is plentiful, ranging from platform beds to serving trays and bathroom vanities. Bamboo is used to make a variety of furniture, from stools and chairs to couches. The wood's durability and versatility allow it to be used for both indoor and outdoor furniture, and bamboo decor includes an assortment of benches, bars and bookshelves. Nearly every type of furniture found in a home is made using bamboo.

For the kitchen, dinette sets, tables and stools are available. Glass-topped bamboo tables allow the beauty and craftsmanship of the piece to be seen, and tall bar stools are offered in bamboo. Kitchen cabinets, cupboards and work islands are also available in bamboo, as are cabinet fronts and counter tops. Many kitchen necessities, such as cutting boards, serving trays and bowls, are available in bamboo and can be displayed when not in use.


Decorative items, such as display plates and candle holders, as well as more utilitarian items, such as window shades, are offered in bamboo. Bamboo shades and blinds are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Bamboo decor touches can be subtle, such as floor register grates, or more dynamic, such as water fountains and large floor mats. Bamboo is also used to make wind chimes, planters and tiki poles, which can be displayed in groups or alone.

Bedroom bamboo decor includes platform beds with attached nightstands, canopy beds and poster beds. Bedroom furniture such as dressers, chests of drawers and nightstands are also available crafted from bamboo. Several types of bamboo lighting are also offered, including bamboo chandeliers, table lamps and wall sconces. Bamboo decor also includes bathroom vanity sets, rocking chairs and desks.

TV stands, room dividers and screens are also available in bamboo. Bamboo nesting chests and baskets can be used for storage as well as aesthetics. A bamboo ladder can be used as a decorative piece by leaning it against a wall, or it can be hung on the wall or ceiling as a backdrop for displaying other items. Bamboo decor also includes folding fans, which can be painted or plain, and umbrella stands.

For the nursery, bamboo decor can include a baby mobile, crib and changing table. Bamboo high chairs, baby chairs and bassinets are also available. Children's table and chair sets are available in bamboo, as are children's beds with under-the-bed storage drawers. Bamboo decor such as towel racks, corner cabinets and free-standing shelves are also offered.
