As far as the overall look is concerned, matchstick blinds look ethnic, organic, traditional yet modern, and blend with any setting they are put up in. These mostly come in light color woods but are now increasingly available in many different shades. These are uniformly linear on both the sides, so even as you get a beautiful look at it from inside, even those looking at it from outside will see a good sight. This can be especially useful if you have it up on the window leading to your garden. So, even while you are seated outside your home, the backside of the blind won’t be jarring to your eye. Also Matchstick blinds come in different textures. If you go for a smooth texture, it will give the room a cleaner, simpler look while a rough one will give it a natural, rustic feel of other types of french door blinds.
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.
Traditionally a salesman would only concentrate on the benefits of their product, this is something that is changing. Consumers are more ’savvy’ and will ask many more probing questions now-a-days, equally they will want to know the upsides and downsides and moreover if there are any risks or dangers associated. This now also applies to many products and blinds are by no means exempt. This article will concentrate on conservatory blinds in particular, and look at the dangers that some of them can pose to young children and other vulnerable persons.
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.
