Blue Roller Blind Design Inspirations
Whether you are looking for light sky blue roller blinds, a deep dark navy blue or some shade in between, chances are you already have a view of the ideal colour of blind that you require. We always recommend that you use a combined approach of the images and colour descriptions available but always order samples before you purchase to ensure that the colour matches your expectations as often the weave or yarn of a fabric’s hue can change tone when in different light conditions. A cobalt or dark blue roller blind like will absorb more light, providing more shade than a lighter duck egg blue. If the goal for a room such as a bedroom is room darkening a blackout roller blind would be ideal to eliminate 100% of visible and UV light as well as providing privacy. Blackout fabric is either of a dense enough weave to prevent light penetrating or is backed by a special blackout lining or coating. Fitting the blind correctly in order to minimise light which may still pass around the sides of the fabric when the blind is closed is equally important. As blackout blinds are made from technical fabrics to prevent light penetration, any shade of blue will achieve the same degree of shading from the lightest baby blue for a baby's nursery to a royal blue or dark navy roller blind for a bathroom. If you require a waterproof blind it should be manufactured from a material such as PVC and should state this clearly in the product properties or details. In areas where your window blind will be in a damp or moist environment such as a kitchen, it is best to use fabrics recommended by manufacturers for moist conditions, these have been treated with a special water impermeable coating yet still retain the look and texture of a normal fabric meaning there is plenty of choice of shades of blue roller blinds and types of fabric designs and patterns.
From bold striped roller blinds to contemporary graphic designs and more classic patterned roller blinds, there is a style and choice of fabric to suit everyone's taste and interior design setting. Polka dots and gingham designs are popular where blues can be combined with complementary colours such as cream, yellow or white. Colours such as navy, sapphire, peacock or jewel, midnight and french navy, denim are all darker shades of blue and will shade more easily whereas sky and baby blue, aquamarine, light or pale blue and turquoise blinds will diffuse light unless they are blackout or dim out blinds with a higher opacity rating.
If light filtering for a room is the desired effect, there are various solutions such as blue voiles or sheer roller blinds and weave or screen blinds to diffuse or filter light into the room while leaving visibility of the view on the other side of the blind when drawn. An energy saving blind would be made from either thermally efficient fabric or backed by a solar protective or reflective coating to reduce solar gain and relative heat loss. It is important to remember however that all fabrics absorb and reflect sunlight to some extent and one important factor is to also ensure that the blind is fit snugly up to the window surround to minimise draughts and air loss.
