A Stylish Black Roller Blind for a Touch of Class
Black never goes out of fashion, does not date and is considered the epitome of elegance and class, just like Coco Chanel who always wore it. A plain black roller blind will provide a good level of shade due to its dark colour but this will also depend on the closeness of the fabric's weave. If you are looking for a bedroom roller blind, a blackout material will eliminate all visible and UV light as well as providing privacy when the blind is drawn. Black blackout roller blinds will darken a room entirely but remember that fit is also important and that some light will still pass around the sides of the fabric where the blind meets the window recess when closed. A blackout blind is not limited to one type of fabric or design as there are many different types of textured and patterned black roller blind fabrics to suit every style and taste. Some are heavily textured woven jacquard fabrics featuring a repeating pattern in them, whereas others are contemporary or bold designs printed onto a dark background. These can often combine other colours which complement black such as silver, gold, white, red or cream for example a striped black and white window blind or a striking black and gold leaf damask patterned roller blind, or a mainly white roller blind with black floral accents.
Black roller blinds are often used in interiors with monochrome schemes or as contrast backdrop for living areas already filled with vibrant colour and prove the perfect timeless window covering for all eventualities. For a window solution where the goal is light filtering rather than room darkening, there are some striking products available, voile or sheer roller blinds, weave or screen blinds, which again can often have different patterns or colours incorporated into them to complement all combinations of colour palettes and interior design schemes. These semi-transparent or sheer lace roller blinds will diffuse or filter light into the room whilst still allowing visibility of the view on the other side of the blind and the effect of this through a black sheer or screen can be quite striking.
Whether you choose jet, ebony or charcoal if the blind is needed for bathrooms or kitchens it makes sense to purchase a waterproof window blind manufactured from PVC, or a fabric that is recommended for moist conditions. These kitchen and bathroom blinds come in fabrics that have usually been coated with a special water impermeable finish but manage to retain the appearance and texture of the normal fabric. They can also be cleaned with a damp sponge as the water will not permeate and damage the fabric's fibres.
An energy saving roller blind might be a consideration if the environment has a lot of glass. Black as a colour absorbs the most light and there are technical fabrics available that are thermally more efficient. They might be backed by solar reflective coatings to reduce solar gain and aid in relative heat loss. All fabrics to some extent will reflect, absorb and transmit sunlight and fitting the blind snugly to the window to minimise draughts and air loss can also make an impact.
Anti-bacterial black roller blinds are available in fabrics that are normally treated with a special coating that will prohibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, mould and mildew.
