Decorative bamboo ladders are a great way to bring some natural wood into your home - and as these Instagrammers prove, they’re stylish as well as practical...

Bamboo is a fantastic material. It’s useful for everything from bedsheets (it’s incredibly soft and breathable) to buildings (over a billion people live in bamboo houses). It’s the fastest growing plant on earth, which makes it one of the most sustainable - a little plantation area goes a very long way and it continuously grows after harvest without having to re-plant it. It also converts about 35% more CO2 into oxygen than trees on average.

So there’s plenty to love about bamboo - and at Raft we love the idea of bringing such great natural materials into the home.

Our ornamental bamboo ladders are a good example. They can be practical - great for hanging towels in a bathroom -  or they can simply be decorative. They’re painted matt black, and many of our customers use them in quite minimalist, monochrome rooms. We really like the way that bamboo brings some natural wood into that kind of contemporary interior design look.

Here are some examples from Instagram of our bamboo ladders styled by interiors experts...

Katie  - aka HelloHaus - is a master of the monochrome scheme - there are strong black and white contrasts used brilliantly throughout her home. The bamboo ladder is ideal as a towel rail in the bathroom.

Emily of Apartment.etc described the bamboo ladder as her favourite purchase for her home. Here she’s used it in a sitting room corner paired with another natural feature in a sitting room - pampas grass (dried and hair-sprayed for long life).



In the bedroom

Kat - blogger at Life at Number 63 - creates beautiful, calm interiors based on whites and clean lines. The bamboo ladder in this bedroom setting is perfect for framing a space in a simple, unobtrusive way.

And finally, we love this gorgeous mix of natural materials in a bedroom by @AliceFWalker, with the bamboo ladder an ideal place for storing and displaying blankets, and bringing colour and texture into the setting.
