Style: The first thing which you must think of is the style of your window blinds. There are many styles in blinds and some of the most common styles are vertical blinds, roller blinds, blackout roller blinds, motorised blinds and Venetian blinds. But before selecting the style you must think of the feel and look you want to create in your room. You must think of whether you want to have informal or formal look. These are the important things which you must think of before selecting the style.
This is also the option available with window blinds. At times, it is cumbersome to roll the blinds if the windows are high or are more in number. Or if you wish to have some ease or safety of your kids and pets from getting stranded with the cords then this option is the right choice. These are also preferred to give an elegant look to the interiors. And of course, you would not like to move your guests to roll the blinds for this the motorized options perfect option.
Now a quick look at how Matchstick blinds can be easily trimmed: The first step is to bunch up the whole blind in to layers. Now measure your window to determine how much needs to be trimmed. Divide the number by two and whatever the number put marks of that at equal distance from the ends of your blind sticks. Now carefully transfer the cut mark on to each blind stick using a measuring and masking tape. Next, use a saw blade with firm hands giving out even motion to cut at the marks made previously. Now deliberately undo the masking tape and your customized blind is ready for hanging up! One note of precaution: Keep the blind cords out of your way while cutting, lest you damage them in the process.
Recently there has tragically been a number of deaths of young children attributed to strangulation by blind cords. Various high-profile organizations up to government level have come onboard to support a campaign called ’Make it Safe’ initiated by the BBSA, the British Blind and Shutter Association, of which Blind Technique are members. This campaign aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation with looped blind cords and controls through education, keeping these cords away from children at all times or if not possible by introducing various safety designs which mitigate the risk. It is highlighted that the only sure way to totally eliminate the risk is to keep all control cords out of reach, and to otherwise fit blinds without any non-control looped tapes, cords or designs.
