Roman shades are a classic. Unlike standard shades, which bunch at the top when opened, Roman shades fold or stack up evenly. As a result, they have a smooth, sleek appearance as opposed to ribbed or bumpy. Depending on the style you choose, these shades can appear elegant and traditional or relaxed and contemporary. Either way, your shades will be both stylish and functional. Roman shades can filter or completely block out the light that enters your windows, help maintain the privacy of your living space, and provide shade to a room that is typically flooded with sunlight.
Roman shades are available in a wide variety of fabrics and patterns so that you can find the ideal complement to your home’s decor. Both light and heavy fabrics can be used, though rigid fabrics may have trouble folding well. In general, you can choose between five different types of folds:
Using Roman shades, you can control how much light enters your room. Customization options are available, allowing you to exercise maximum light control with light-blocking fabric or blackout liners. Consider the orientation of the window, the amount of shade it receives, and how the room will be used when deciding how much light you need to block.
Roman shades are easy to hang and operate. You can choose to mount these shades inside or outside of the window frame. Plus, a variety of lift mechanisms are available. If a simple cord lock won’t cut it, you might wish to explore cordless lifts, continuous loop lifts, or even motorized lift upgrades. Raise and lower your shades with the push of a button!
