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.
Honeycomb, or cellular blinds are designed specifically to protect against heat loss, and they are made from air-pocketed honeycomb-like material. You can get single-cell honeycomb blinds which are effective in protecting against cold, or duel cell blinds which offer excellent insulation in the winter and summer months. You can also get blackout blinds which insulate while also blocking out light. And finally, light filtering blinds are useful for controlling the amount of light that enters a room, and can help you control the warmth of a room when the sun is shining.
Recently there has tragically been a number of deaths of young children attributed to strangulation by blind cords. Various high-profile organizations up to government level have come onboard to support a campaign called ’Make it Safe’ initiated by the BBSA, the British Blind and Shutter Association, of which Blind Technique are members. This campaign aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation with looped blind cords and controls through education, keeping these cords away from children at all times or if not possible by introducing various safety designs which mitigate the risk. It is highlighted that the only sure way to totally eliminate the risk is to keep all control cords out of reach, and to otherwise fit blinds without any non-control looped tapes, cords or designs.
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.
