Is your room looking boring or styleless? Tired of the same old curtains or drapes that you have hanging on your windows? You need something fresh. Consider giving your room a makeover, including Roman shades for your windows.

The hottest trend in window fashions right now is Roman shades. Clean, classic, and efficient are words that describe this window covering. Roman shades operate by a standard cord lock, a continuous cord loop, or a remote controlled motor that pulls the fabric up and lowers it down. When in the down position, the fabric can be flat, hobbled, or in a waterfall formation. The shade can be lined to be light filtering or more room darkening.

Roman shades are generally manufactured with cords. Therefore, if you have small children or pets you may want to request a cordless version.

Advantages of Roman Window Shades

Roman shades probably fit your budget. Prices of roman shades vary over a wide range so almost everybody can take one home. With a limited budget, you can still get attractive shades made of cheaper fabrics. If money isn’t a limiter, you can choose from a wide variety of shades from exquisite fabrics, to even bamboo.

Another place where Roman shades have an advantage is sleek design. The layered and simple design make Roman shades really unique and pleasing to the eye. Whether layer up above the window or lowered down; Roman shades have a clean line, and organized appearance. This can also pair well with intricate patterns and prints without being overwhelming.

Unlike shutters or traditional blinds, Roman blinds use fabric and textiles, which allows you a huge range of colors, patterns, and prints. Also materials, textures, and opacities. This flexibility translates to a huge potential for personalization.

Roman shades can be made to fit almost any size of the window. If your window is not a traditional size or shape you’re not limited, because we can custom-make Roman window shades for your home.

Varieties of Roman Shades

There are a lot of styles and materials that can be used with Roman shades. These window treatments are best known for their opulent feel and touch of elegance and class they bring to a home. They make any room look clean and fresh. They can also help reduce energy bills with their energy efficient qualities. Take a look at some of the most enjoyed varieties of these blinds.

Light Filtering Shades

These shades are designed to offer privacy while letting light in. Polyester is the primary material used. There are varieties available that are both soil and dust resistant. It’s a great way to bring a classic look to a child’s bedroom or play area without having to worry about them getting ruined.

Blackout Roman Shades

Best suited for home theater rooms, these blinds look good while providing a dark, secluded atmosphere. They’re also great if you have sleeping problems because of the sun coming in through the windows.

Woven Wood Shades

These blinds are pretty cool. They have the feel of the ocean, the beach and palm trees swaying. Synthetic woven wood can be used to avoid warping and maintain color longer than real woven wood blinds or shades.

Textured Linen Roman Shades

Linen is a fabric associated with summer. It’s breezy and soft. This can be used to open up French doors or large windows, and is also a great choice for bedrooms.

Satin Shades

Satin just looks good. It works in opulent bedrooms, formal living rooms, and classic studies. It can come in any color to enhance the colors in furniture or bed linens.
