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.
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.
Well, this is the added advantage that window blinds offer. The cellular or honeycomb blinds helps to control the temperature of the room helping in minimizing the use of heaters or AC while solar blinds or energy efficient blinds helped to save the energy wasted on turning on lights during the day. These are capable of holding the glare outside while allowing the light to flow in.
Modern manufacturers have tried their best - they created a great variety of blinds. The variants of the vertical and horizontal strips (lamella) made of different materials with distinct textures, a wide color palette and even the possibility of applying to the blinds of any image. Such a rich selection designed to suit all tastes, and, most importantly, for every budget.
