Bold patterned roller blinds are back: interior design trend

Roller blinds became quite passé after years of their being used in sterile or outdated designs, but with new patterns and features, they’re making a big comeback and are being featured in homes and offices of all types.

Roller blinds are back

Roller blinds are back and we don’t mean the kind that were in your day care center a trillion years ago that came in creme and had that circle thingy at the bottom that snapped eyeballs out when the roller was pulled up or down too quickly. No, roller blinds have come a long way, and not only are they aesthetically pleasing with modern patterns and colors, they function much more differently now and come with a lot of features.

Roller blinds of today are flame retardant, and you can get them in blackout, dimout or diffused, and can even order reflective roller blinds to help keep your home or office cool and the electric bills down, as this summer looks like it will be a pretty harsh one. Some are stain proof and easy wipe, and some are even moisture proof which is great for those condensation-filled mornings. Additionally, some roller blinds are even made with hypoallergenic materials.

We are seeing these being used as a high impact focal point for rooms, especially with minimalist, modern, or transitional interiors. Solids and textures are available, but what is hot right now is the big, bold patterns, be they floral, striped, or chevron.

    I really liked your article on roller blinds. The choice now is unbelievable compared to only a few years ago. Its easy to be spolit for choice with the differnet types of fabrics used in the manufacture of the fabric.

    great….in a climate (QLD) where blinds are a necessity, and the local house style shuns curtains i am pleased to see some contemporary patterns/stripes. Just wish the Aussies would catch up – dreary plains/textured only – have to keep shipping from the UK (wallpaper included).
