Windows are the face of home and any interior is incomplete without dressing them. We have multiple options for the purpose. Curtains, drapes, shades or blinds everyone plays their own role and holds their value. When we plan to purchase blinds for the windows there are multiple options that back our decision. Other than understanding the style of window, interior here are the factors that are to be looked upon for deciding the right choice.
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.
Finding the right window blind for your rooms decor should start with understanding the window treatments that you have to work with. The simplest window blind type is a roller blind, which consists of a flat piece of fabric that is stiffened then wrapped around the wooden roller and attached to the top of the window with brackets. The roller blinds design uses a spring in one end, which allows the blind to be adjusted to any height with the use of a ratchet system. Roller blinds can be made with most fabrics and then have a stiffening agent applied to the fabric which allows easy cleaning with a damp cloth making them great for bathroom and kitchen window blinds. If you’re looking for at luxurious pristine look then a festoon blind will be your choice it has extra fullness and is gathered into a length giving you a rich robust effect. It’s usually made with fine fabric textures like voile, being that this type of blind uses a large amount of fabric it tends to be more expensive. By using a series of cords vertically running through rings and then sewn on the back of the blinds fabric gives the basics to lower and raise several different blind systems.
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.
