Blinds - this is truly a great invention, with which you will have several benefits simultaneously. They will save you from the scorching rays of the sun, protect your furniture from fading and will hide you from too curious eyes of neighbors or passers-by, and, finally, will be a natural complement to your windows, fit perfectly into any interior.
Material: In the market you can find window blinds in wide variety of material ranging from fabric to aluminum, wooden to vinyl. And you must not forget that there is no blind in the market which you can say that it is perfect but you can select the material of the blind according to your needs and specification. There are two things which you must consider before selecting the material of your blind. Firstly you must think of your budget. And secondly you must think of which type of texture does you prefer? You must also make sure that the material which you have selected for your window blind must fit well with the decor of your room.
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.
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.
