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.
Let us talk innovation now. Matchstick blinds work magic on their own, but if you need something extra for your room, try using them along with other drapes, curtains and even shades. When used in the right combination, it can make your room look really sophisticated and also be everybody’s envy. And if you are the artistic kind, nothing like it; you can personalize your very own matchstick blinds. You can add a design with a stencil or hand or spray paint it according to whatever theme that your room may be complying to. You can even use your favorite colors or the dominant color of your room to create a theme. If you are using it in your child’s bedroom, draw fun characters and shapes or use pastel colors to give it a light kiddie look.
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.
It depends on you what privacy level you are looking for. The blinds are offered in sheer, room darkening to blackout range. At times, you may prefer complete blackout may be in the bedroom or TV room or you may opt for some light in the living room or study room. If you have a panoramic view from the window you may prefer to have controlled light option with a complete view from the window. For this purpose, you may prefer energy efficient window blinds. You may also choose sheer or solar blinds to have a glow of light but protect your furnishings from the harmful rays.
