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.
Before we discuss blinds, let’s try to understand the two basic types of insulation. Reflective insulation refers to insulation that is lined with a heat and cold reflecting material, while bulk insulation refers to the use of a thick material that prevents hot and cold air from entering your home. The insulation used in most buildings utilizes a combination of reflective and bulk insulation; and while you probably don’t want to use this kind of material as a window covering, the principles of insulating blinds are the same.
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.
Alternatively try-making window blinds translucent voile or muslin, with this idea you have many ranges in styles with printed designs or woven to pick from. Most blinds can be made with fine fabrics that will give you a creative blind alternative to curtain window coverings and still blend together with heavier curtains allowing for privacy and warmth. Window blinds have a beautiful linear style and look which allows them to be combined with contemporary and tailored interior decors. The blinds, shades or even shutters on your windows are only one part of the total picture of your existing window treatment. In terms of the design and thus supplement by creating curtains, cornices, valances, jabots and swags to the blinds you will allow for layers of decorating punch to the look of your window Blind treatments.
