  • Cordless Lift: This popular feature upgrades your Roman shades with a hidden control system, eliminating unsightly cords and enabling your roman shades to be easily raised or lowered.
  • Continuous Cord Loop: This upgrade secures your Roman shades cord to the wall or window frame, allowing you to easily raise or lower your shades by pulling the loop cord in either direction. This is a great option if your Roman shades are covering a wide or tall window.

  • Valances and Cornices: These can accent your Roman shades with a stylish topper. Some Roman shades feature fabric-wrapped wooden headrails at the top of the shade, or decorative trim at the bottom.

  • Operating mechanisms and the folds of Roman shades require window depth to hang properly. Be sure to check the minimum depth requirements for an inside mount.
