Choose a Green Roller Blind, Inspired by Nature
The colour green is all around us in nature for inspiration and the varying shades from a zesty lime green to mellow sage or jade green can cater for every mood and taste to suit any interior design. A plain green roller blind can come in numerous shades and although images on the internet can show variations and graduation in colour quite well, to really see the differences in tone and hue, especially as light falls on the textures of the fabric, we'd always recommend ordering fabric samples before you purchase to check your exact colour match. A light golden chartreuse material might in fact look like a bright lime green when you hold it up in bright sunlight at the window you intend to hang it in. A combination of the images, the colour descriptions and finally ordering samples is the recommended approach to getting the nearest match to your desired colour. Whether you are looking for light or dark green roller blinds, or a particular shade such as olive, apple, bottle or mint green, there should be an exact colour match available in a range of different types of fabric textures and properties to suit your requirements. For a bedroom roller blind, a blackout fabric might be most suitable to eliminate 100% of visible and UV light penetration and also provide good privacy. Blackout roller blinds are either in fabrics with a dense enough weave or that are lined with a special blackout backing. Bear in mind that the fit of the blind is important to minimise the amount of light that will still pass around the sides where the fabric meets the window recess when drawn. Many fabrics that aren’t blackout but that are a dark colour of dense heavily woven fabric also offer good room darkening properties and these dim out green roller blinds would be flagged by the manufacturers as having higher shading or opacity ratings, colours such as British racing green, moss, blue-green, olive or avocado coloured roller blinds.
If the window blind is to be used in a setting where it might come into contact with water, such as a bathroom or kitchen, there are technical fabrics to assist. A waterproof roller blind would be made from PVC or another impermeable material, there are also fabrics that come recommended for moist conditions that have a special water impermeable coating applied to the fabric, and as the fabric is water resistant, this means that they can also be cleaned using a damp sponge, whilst still retaining the normal look and texture of a conventional material.
If the goal of your blind is light filtering or diffusing for the room, rather than shading, a voile or sheer fabric would be the best solution. Again these semi-transparent blinds come in many different fabric types, patterns and shades of green with striped, patterned weave, and textured fabrics available to offer varying degrees of shading whilst still allowing visibility of the vies on the other side of the blind when drawn, to striking effect.
Green patterned roller blinds can be found mixed with various complementary colours such as neutrals, cream, brown, black and white as well as contrasting bolds like cerise, orange and yellow. Some graphic contemporary patterned blinds can stand out as features in their own right, like certain styles of check and gingham and at the other end of the scale are the more traditional floral and leaf print blinds, striped blinds and white and green spotted roller blinds are timelessly popular.
Energy saving blinds are becoming a more popular choice. These will be where the manufacturer has used thermally efficient fabrics or reflective protective coatings or backing to reduce solar gain and relative heat loss. Remember all fabrics absorb and reflect heat to some extent, fitting the blind as snugly as possible to the window to minimise draughts and air loss is a helpful way to save energy too.
