Bamboo slats are unbelievably versatile with endless possibilities for improving or simply adding beauty to your home.

Environmental benefits include a release of 35% more oxygen than many plants and soil erosion prevention.

Bamboo slats are available in Natural, Natural Burnt, Carbonized, Mahogany, and Black stained finishes. The assorted color combinations can be used for everything from traditional tropical looks to contemporary settings. You can build a luxurious tropical escape by using slats to make outdoor dividers, bar fronts, wainscoting, and more.
Why Choose Bamboo Slats?
There are many reasons to consider adding bamboo slats or trim to your property. Many people know that bamboo is an eco-friendly alternative to conventional hardwoods and other building materials. We talk a bit more about the environmental benefits of choosing bamboo below. However, bamboo is more than just good for the earth. Other benefits of choosing bamboo include:
- Strength: Bamboo's beauty is more than just skin-deep. In fact, bamboo is one of the strongest building materials available. Working with it gives you a finished product that will be tougher and more durable than other options. When properly treated, it is suitable for both interior and exterior use.
- Versatility: Bamboo has a characteristic look and feel, but it isn't limited in its design potential. You can find bamboo trim in everything from bohemian-inspired lofts to more classic and contemporary homes. The wide range of colors and styles available at Forever Bamboo further expands the possibilities.
- Economical Value: Compare bamboo to other materials and you'll see that few options offer its style, strength and eco-friendliness at a comparable price point. Our bamboo slats are a great long-term investment that will deliver more value per dollar than virtually anything else.

Bamboo slat installation and application can be done in just a few easy steps. First, decided where you would like to apply the slats. Bamboo slats are a great building material for covering bland ceilings or tiki bars. Each slat can be joined side by side for a professional and finished look. You can also attach slats diagonally or horizontally to create any pattern of your choice. Next, use a brad nailer to nail the slats on both ends and in the center for additional reinforcement. Once the application is completed, you can coat the slats with a finishing stain for noticeable color enhancement.
Slats can also be used to make edging for tables, custom-made picture frames, countertops and homemade art. Glue, nail, or staple slats into place for easy installation and application.
Use Forever Bamboo bamboo strips in both commercial and residential properties. In homes, they add an organic touch that is often missing from contemporary decor. In businesses, they distinguish your organization from the competition, whether you're a Tiki bar or Hawaiian restaurant, a spa, sauna or yoga studio, a hotel, or any other business. Check out our Gallery to see some of the ways our commercial customers have incorporated bamboo trim into their renovation projects.
Our bamboo slats are manufactured from Phyllostachys Edulis, also known as Moso bamboo, which is incredibly sturdy and strong. In order to ensure only the highest quality bamboo products are sold, we hand select and inspect every piece. The bamboo is submerged in a light Sodium Borate solution that helps preserve the bamboo and protect it against fungus and insect damage. Depending on the season, the bamboo poles can be bleached in the sun to fade the green hues to a natural yellow-tan color. Once the desired color is obtained, the poles are kiln dried and stored to minimize moisture content. The bamboo is cut into equal strips to attain a smooth and straight shape that forms each slat.
Black and Mahogany slats are specially stained after they are dried to add variety to the color selection. Natural slats can also be stained, but must be sanded beforehand to achieve a lasting finish.
Bamboo is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional wood building materials. Trees can take many years to grow to a mature size. Unlike trees used for traditional wood materials, bamboo doesn’t have to be killed in order to be harvested. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and can grow up to 24 inches in just one day. Each pole is cut at the root base allowing for regrowth over time. Because the roots remain in place, bamboo aids in soil erosion prevention. Bamboo is 100% renewable and is grown organically–free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
With the increase in environmental awareness, bamboo is by far the most eco-friendly alternative to wood. With its high rate of oxygen conversion, bamboo even plays a crucial role in helping to stop the global warming epidemic. Plants everywhere purify and remove toxins from the atmosphere, but bamboo in particular has a much higher environmental impact. Compared to other plants and trees, bamboo absorbs twice as much carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen. At Forever Bamboo, we are constantly traveling the world to find the best quality bamboo and ensuring that working conditions are comparable to American standards.
