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.
Now let’s talk of the benefits of Matchstick blinds. First of all these blinds can offer privacy while letting enough sunshine pass through if used on French door windows or similar kinds of doors/windows. But here you must choose carefully depending on what is of utmost importance. There might be some blinds which are very tightly woven, allowing very little light to pass. So while making the selection, keep it in mind how much light is warranted and hopefully it is not compromising your privacy. Also if you use them on a patio or even a balcony it can shield you from grazing eyes of the neighborhood even while sitting in the outdoors. Another point worth considering is that these blinds provide good insulation and help in room temperature maintenance.
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.
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.
