Full Answer

Matchstick blinds are typically made from bamboo. They come in a range of widths to fit many sizes of windows. A wide variety of colors are available, and some are stained or printed. In general, matchstick blinds do not offer full privacy because some light does filter through them. Sometimes a matching valance is paired with a blind to enhance the look and hide parts of the cord.
