What are Roman shades?
Roman shades are made of a continuous piece of fabric, not unlike drapes, that are then attached to a headrail. Unlike drapery window treatments which attach to a rod and slide side to side, roman shade material folds neatly up to the top as you raise it, so that it is packed away to clear your view, and then can be lowered down when you want to cover your window. Their compact nature allows them to be mounted easily within the window frame as an inside mount shade, or even on french doors. The fold style of the material can be customized as well, from a classic fold for a more traditional look, to a hobbled fold that is designed to accentuate the folds, or even a relaxed fold that has a curved bottom for a more casual look.
Roman shades offer the luxurious fabric options, textures, and soft fold styles of curtains, combined with the compact package of blinds. Roman blinds are the perfect window treatment to add light control to your space, from filtering to room darkening, and are a great option to bring a decorative look to your windows with their many patterns and fabrics. You can go for cordless roman shades that operate by hand or with a motorized lift, or go for a continuous cord loop for easy access on tall windows. Blackout liners are also available, turning your shade into a blackout roman shade that provides complete protection from UV rays. The high quality materials and variety of lift options and fabric choices means you can get the roman shade perfect for your home and your needs.
Are Roman shades better for light filtering or blocking natural light?
Similar to roller shades, roman shades come in a wide variety of fabrics, patterns, and styles, making them ideal for windows in any room. You can choose from solid fabrics that can filter the light, reducing glare while keeping the room bright and airy, to blackout shades that provide complete privacy and darkness - perfect for a bedroom or nursery. Sheer fabrics are also available which allow you to see through the material even when it is down. Thicker materials with liners can also turn roman shades into effective thermal blinds for temperature control. Take a look at our selection of products and order free samples to see for yourself.
