A very elegant and easy way to change the complete look and feel of your room is by adorning its windows. Thankfully these days we have many options of doing so and the top most among them is using window blinds. These can be of many types and come in different shades, colors and textures. One variety that stands out though is Matchstick blinds. These elegant looking window covers are the next in thing and a hot property among new home-decorators. Matchstick blinds stand out from others like Vinyl and aluminum blinds for their eco-friendliness and low cost. For any one decorating their homes, Matchstick blinds are an item of must consideration.
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.
The window blinds are designed in various styles. Roman, roller, open roman, apex, cellular, collinear, wood, panel, vertical, zebra and so on. Depending on your preference you can explore the right style. For both light and privacy, you can choose zebra or open roman blinds. These are most preferred in an office or home office windows. While you can have the panel and vertical blinds for your big windows, roman, roller and apex are preferred in other rooms. Roller blinds are most preferred in wash rooms and kitchen along with living and bedrooms. You just have to explore the options available depending on your needs and preferences and then move over to the desired style and design. The you have to measure the right size of the window to get the blinds customized so that they fits in there perfectly. Now you just have to explore your preferences and creativity and dress your room to reflect your taste.
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.
