So what are matchstick blinds? These are window coverings (blinds) that consist of a number of horizontally set smooth, uniform bamboo wood sticks. These blinds get their name because the bamboo sticks that are used are rounded just like matchsticks. However there can be some with rough, irregular sticks but those should be taken as more of an exception than a norm. These days Matchsticks blinds are also available in natural wood materials other than bamboo. These are rattan, jute and other woods woven together with naturally occurring grass.
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.
It depends on you what privacy level you are looking for. The blinds are offered in sheer, room darkening to blackout range. At times, you may prefer complete blackout may be in the bedroom or TV room or you may opt for some light in the living room or study room. If you have a panoramic view from the window you may prefer to have controlled light option with a complete view from the window. For this purpose, you may prefer energy efficient window blinds. You may also choose sheer or solar blinds to have a glow of light but protect your furnishings from the harmful rays.
If you look at the various blinds for conservatories, we can split them into two categories, roof blinds and window blinds, already discussed in the previous paragraph. The easier, in terms of safety is roof blinds as they are fitted up high and working either with remote control or using a control wand so that there are no looped parts within reach and no control cords to worry about. Pleated roof blinds and woodweave, also known as pinoleum, blinds fit nicely into this category. The one existing style of roof blind that you need to be aware of are manually operated roof roller blinds, as these require looped control cords to operate them open and closed. Of course these controls can be installed out of reach and neatly organized away from young hands using either a cleat or cord tidy. When it comes to Conservatory Blinds and young children, it is important that this is done at all times necessary - when a risk exists.
