So what are matchstick blinds? Well, these are specific types of blinds that consists of several horizontally placed and smooth uniform bamboo sticks.

Let’s take a look at the technical aspects of Matchstick blinds. They have an attached pulley system with a cord that lines the wood sticks together. By letting the pulley go or pulling it up, you roll the blinds up or down. Additionally, there are cords that go along the length of the blinds to keep the bamboo sticks together in a row. The blinds are equipped with a pulley system and it is typically on top of the blinds to ensure it stays sort of hidden and doesn’t spoil the appearance of the blinds.
