As far as the overall look is concerned, matchstick blinds look ethnic, organic, traditional yet modern, and blend with any setting they are put up in. These mostly come in light color woods but are now increasingly available in many different shades. These are uniformly linear on both the sides, so even as you get a beautiful look at it from inside, even those looking at it from outside will see a good sight. This can be especially useful if you have it up on the window leading to your garden. So, even while you are seated outside your home, the backside of the blind won’t be jarring to your eye. Also Matchstick blinds come in different textures. If you go for a smooth texture, it will give the room a cleaner, simpler look while a rough one will give it a natural, rustic feel of other types of french door blinds.
Before we discuss blinds, let’s try to understand the two basic types of insulation. Reflective insulation refers to insulation that is lined with a heat and cold reflecting material, while bulk insulation refers to the use of a thick material that prevents hot and cold air from entering your home. The insulation used in most buildings utilizes a combination of reflective and bulk insulation; and while you probably don’t want to use this kind of material as a window covering, the principles of insulating blinds are the same.
Material: In the market you can find window blinds in wide variety of material ranging from fabric to aluminum, wooden to vinyl. And you must not forget that there is no blind in the market which you can say that it is perfect but you can select the material of the blind according to your needs and specification. There are two things which you must consider before selecting the material of your blind. Firstly you must think of your budget. And secondly you must think of which type of texture does you prefer? You must also make sure that the material which you have selected for your window blind must fit well with the decor of your room.
Mixing window blinds and other styles and types of window treatments will allow you to be more versatile in your window decor ideas. To have necessary privacy along with light exclusion you would have a blind in a thick fabric along with curtains just for decoration if you want. Why not combined at floaty voile full-length curtain and a thick textured blind or maybe a splash of some more curious fabric only allowing it for dress curtains only. By draping a scarf or maybe a decorative shawl on some swag holders will soften the blinds lines. These ideas are more economical than the conventional drapery window coverings.
