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.
Matchstick blinds do need some maintenance just like other blinds and other home decoration things. These must be dusted regularly to avoid accumulation of excessive dirt and dust particles. One important thing to keep in mind is that bamboo is a natural material and not plastic, so it can get molds. The best solution is to keep the place moisture free and well ventilated.
