In addition to these types of blinds, there are even reflective blind styles that prevent heating or cooling. Roman blinds, rolling blinds, and more contemporary blind styles can be constructed using reflective material so you can better insulate your windows. You should even consider the materials blinds are made from as this can impact insulation. For example, timber blinds have natural insulating properties, while metal blinds do not. Cedar is an especially good insulator because it is light and porous. Alternatively, consider combining your blinds with heavy fabrics for better heat and sound insulation.
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.
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.
Now let’s talk of the benefits of Matchstick blinds. First of all these blinds can offer privacy while letting enough sunshine pass through if used on French door windows or similar kinds of doors/windows. But here you must choose carefully depending on what is of utmost importance. There might be some blinds which are very tightly woven, allowing very little light to pass. So while making the selection, keep it in mind how much light is warranted and hopefully it is not compromising your privacy. Also if you use them on a patio or even a balcony it can shield you from grazing eyes of the neighborhood even while sitting in the outdoors. Another point worth considering is that these blinds provide good insulation and help in room temperature maintenance.
