You’d never want to live in a home without windows - they provide natural light and sometimes stunning vistas too. That being said, windows are also responsible for as much as 50 per cent of heat loss from the typical home. Installing double-glazed windows can help ameliorate this problem, but a decent set of blinds can also offer better insulation. Indeed, investing in new blinds is effective and also much more economical than new windows when it comes to improving the insulation of your home. So which blinds are best for warmth?
Let us talk innovation now. Matchstick blinds work magic on their own, but if you need something extra for your room, try using them along with other drapes, curtains and even shades. When used in the right combination, it can make your room look really sophisticated and also be everybody’s envy. And if you are the artistic kind, nothing like it; you can personalize your very own matchstick blinds. You can add a design with a stencil or hand or spray paint it according to whatever theme that your room may be complying to. You can even use your favorite colors or the dominant color of your room to create a theme. If you are using it in your child’s bedroom, draw fun characters and shapes or use pastel colors to give it a light kiddie look.
Well, this is the added advantage that window blinds offer. The cellular or honeycomb blinds helps to control the temperature of the room helping in minimizing the use of heaters or AC while solar blinds or energy efficient blinds helped to save the energy wasted on turning on lights during the day. These are capable of holding the glare outside while allowing the light to flow in.
Let us look at the technical aspects of Matchstick blinds. These have an attached pulley system. It consists of a string which threads the wood sticks together. When pulled or let go, it rolls up or down the blinds. Additionally there are strings which go along the length to keep all the individual sticks in place. The pulley system is put up at the top of the blinds so that it doesn’t show up and spoil the look of the blinds. Most blinds will come with a header section (in some cases made of bamboo itself) to cover all this up.
