Frequently Asked Questions About Roman Shades

How can Roman shades benefit my room?

Roman shades are one of today’s trendiest and most versatile window treatments. These flat Roman shades can control light and privacy and be customized to fit any specific situation – from a clean flat fold shade for the bedroom or living room to something more casual like relaxed or London style in whatever fabric you desire.

A Roman shade is a thin fabric tube rolled up into the window blinds. A narrow wooden or metal head bar is attached across the top of the shade to hold it in place and provide support for opening and closing. The bottom of the shade hangs down from the back of the headrail with “the fringe” – a piece of thin fabric or braid sewn down on itself in a zig-zag pattern.

Roman shades look classy and stylish when down and fabulous when opened up to let in light from any window. They provide a clean, modern appearance that is perfect for an office or studio apartment because they do not interfere with the view outside and let plenty of natural light come through when opened. These cordless shades will not fall like traditional window blinds or shutters, making them perfect for homes with pets, children, and more.

What is the best type of Roman shade for my windows?

Before selecting the right window shade, take a moment to consider your personal preferences and the uniqueness of each style. The most popular types are flat, relaxed, London (aka tulip), or balloon.

If you like a clean look and want less fiddling with your shades, it is best to choose a flat style. Flat windows quickly develop an easily recognizable signature look as sophisticated as a classic. The flat style also has a sheer light filtering lining, making it easy to see out, and it can help provide shade from the sun without changing your view.

Relaxed Roman shades are great for those who want a clean look but need more insulation. The relaxed style is efficient and provides excellent heat protection, perfect for living rooms, kitchens, and dens. The relaxed style is a good choice for those who cannot control the height of the blinds or want greater insulation from cold or heat. Relaxed shades can be made in virtually any fabric, providing a stylish look that fits practically any window.

The London (aka tulip) Roman shade is ideal for anyone who wants more insulation and privacy. The relaxed style features a thicker headrail that provides just enough insulation for those who want to keep the sun out of their home without interfering with the view outside. This is an excellent choice for windows near your porch, deck, patio, pool, hot tub, or other outdoor space where you need to maintain some level of privacy and want to let in natural light.

Balloon Roman shades are perfect for the “afternoon sun” room or home office. The relaxed balloon-style shades feature a thicker fabric that provides exceptional insulation, making them ideal during winter when sunlight tends to be harshest. Balloon Roman shades can be made with virtually any material and can be cut to fit any size and shape of the window.

We aim to provide the most comprehensive shade solutions for residential and commercial properties in the greater Austin, Texas, area and surrounding communities.

Which fabrics and trims are best for a Roman shade?

These days, many attractive sheer fabrics are available for purchase, and many can be found at a reasonable price. Cotton blends and linen texture refresh your decor and add the finishing touches to window treatments without overpowering them. Available for openings of all sizes, including shallow windows, doors, French doors, and oversized windows.

When picking up fabric to use for Roman shades or Roman blinds, look for medium weight and a width of at least 54 inches. Heavier materials can be challenging to control because they tend to strain the cord you are using. You should also know that online sources often have flaws in their fabric, providing mixed results.

There are so many options available today that it is possible to find precisely the right color and trim style to fit your particular decor while ensuring your shades will work with your window frame. Consider trims for an easy way to add color or pattern to your shade. These trims should be ordered based on the width needed for each shade and can add a nice finishing touch to your custom Roman shades.

Do Roman shades block out the sun?

While sunlight can be an asset to home furnishings, it does not always offer a pleasant experience. Roman shades, in many cases, provide light filtering that will slightly limit light from entering a room, but this is not true in all cases. If you want to control the light in your room further, using a lining with thick or sun-blocking material is essential. A blackout liner will ensure that there isn’t any external light coming into the home. This underlayer may be essentially undetectable when hung properly.

Any shade will somewhat limit the sun but to varying degrees. Roman shades are known for their light filtering qualities for a pleasurable indoor experience, but they do not block UV rays, provide room darkening, or completely block the sun.
