Honeycomb, or cellular blinds are designed specifically to protect against heat loss, and they are made from air-pocketed honeycomb-like material. You can get single-cell honeycomb blinds which are effective in protecting against cold, or duel cell blinds which offer excellent insulation in the winter and summer months. You can also get blackout blinds which insulate while also blocking out light. And finally, light filtering blinds are useful for controlling the amount of light that enters a room, and can help you control the warmth of a room when the sun is shining.
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.
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.
Window blinds are offered in various materials. Fabric, metal, wood or vinyl, the options are vast and we have to choose the right material depending upon the location of the window, purpose of the blind, type of window and so on. Like the vinyl material are best for wash rooms while the fabric material is the best for living or bedrooms. Similarly, the bay windows can have fabric material while the wood can take place in the study or outhouse.
