Choose a White Roller Blind, Clean & Pure
White is the colour we associate with purity and peace, light and innocence and as a window covering white roller blinds can prove a stylish clean choice. A plain white roller blind is an obvious starting point, a fundamental staple that will diffuse light whilst still allowing it into the environment and providing privacy but, depending on the type of fabric used, the lighting and shading effects, as well as the texture and pattern of the fabric can be markedly different with so many types now available. A blackout roller blind may be the only solution if a white fabric is sought to match the interior but a high degree of shading, as well as privacy is required. In this case the fabric may either be lined by a special blackout coating or the fabric weave may be blackout itself that will not allow any light penetration through. Unless a white roller blind is made from a blackout fabric, there will usually be quite a high degree of light penetration through the fabric being such a light colour and this is usually a sought after effect and reason by design, to use a lighter weight fabric either in textured jacquard patterns and weaves or semi-transparent and sheer white roller blinds which perform the modern day role of net curtains in a contemporary interior. Some of the interesting woven and white patterned sheer window blinds can form a feature in their own right as part of an interior design scheme with a wealth of different and sumptuous textures and fabrics at a designers fingertips.
There are also various performance aspects to these fabrics that can determine which product is most suitable, for rooms such as bathrooms or kitchens waterproof white roller blinds made from PVC would be ideal, or moisture resistant materials, that are suitable or recommended for moist conditions. These have the look and feel of normal fabric but are treated with a special water repellent coating. This means that they can also be wiped with a sponge for cleaning as water does not permeate and damage the fabric fibres.
A white jacquard patterned fabric will have a woven textured repeat pattern running through the fabric and similarly a sheer weave roller blind will have a woven appearance front and back which makes these fabrics an interesting addition to any interior designer's mood board. A sheer or semi-transparent lace off white roller blind such as a voile blind will still allow the visibility of objects, the view, or their silhouette to be seen through the fabric when drawn, so the need for privacy at various times of the day should be considered as well as the effects of lighting inside the room when the exterior is in darkness. Some of the most popular patterns can improve privacy by tempering the sheer effect, for example striped white sheer roller blinds where there is a mix of opaque and semi-transparent fabric. A white roller blind need not be plain with the array of textured, patterned, striped, spotted and children's fabrics on offer. A red or black print, for example would add life and interest to any plain coloured fabric.
There are many technical and enhanced fabrics available to aid the ambience and ergonomics of your environment which are worth considering. An energy saving blind is one where the fabric used by the manufacturers is thermally efficient or might be backed by a solar reflective coating to reduce solar gain and aid in relative heat loss. It is important to remember that all fabrics will reflect, absorb and transmit sunlight to some extent, and that fitting the blind snugly to the window to minimise draughts and air loss can also make an impact. The anti-bacterial fabrics that are available are normally treated with a special coating to prohibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, mould and mildew.
