13 Mar Best roman blind fabric
Roman blinds have a neat, tailored look that works well with a plain fabric, simple repeating two colour pattern, stripe or geometric in muted colours. The best roman blind fabrics are ones that will also look just as good folded up, something that all of these will due to the size of the pattern repeat. A blind with a smaller drop will generally need a smaller pattern and vice versa. It is also important to ensure that the pattern is centred from left to right of the blind, but also within each fold.
For a discreet look, pick out the neutral background colour for the paint colour of surrounding walls. For different types of blinds, read my blog post Complete Guide to Blinds
Here are a few of my favourites that are all ideally suited to the job. They are all printed on a medium weight Linen or Linen Union fabric which will help them hang well but not be too bulky.
Remember that roman blinds use less fabric than curtains and the cost of make up is generally less.
