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.
Likewise, window shades also have various types like cellular shades, roller shades, honeycomb shades, pleated shades, and Roman shades. Therefore, the abundant different types of windows blinds and shades give you more freedom on your choices, making it easier to find a perfect match to the place and areas where you are planning to install them.
Now a quick look at how Matchstick blinds can be easily trimmed: The first step is to bunch up the whole blind in to layers. Now measure your window to determine how much needs to be trimmed. Divide the number by two and whatever the number put marks of that at equal distance from the ends of your blind sticks. Now carefully transfer the cut mark on to each blind stick using a measuring and masking tape. Next, use a saw blade with firm hands giving out even motion to cut at the marks made previously. Now deliberately undo the masking tape and your customized blind is ready for hanging up! One note of precaution: Keep the blind cords out of your way while cutting, lest you damage them in the process.
This is also the option available with window blinds. At times, it is cumbersome to roll the blinds if the windows are high or are more in number. Or if you wish to have some ease or safety of your kids and pets from getting stranded with the cords then this option is the right choice. These are also preferred to give an elegant look to the interiors. And of course, you would not like to move your guests to roll the blinds for this the motorized options perfect option.
