Fabric Roman Shades from Blinds.com
Roman shades combine the style and fabric selection of designer custom drapes with the total control of a custom shade, giving you the best of both worlds. The most appealing part of roman shades is the unmatched quality of the fabrics, with materials ranging from cotton to 100% silk. Roman shades are also available in a variety of patterns. Whether you crave the simplicity of classic stripes and floral prints, or striking modern designs, make sure to order samples so you can see the fabric options in person. One advantage roman shades have over custom drapes is their versatility. With a number of lift options and fabric types, you can get superior light control while keeping that designer's touch. They also fit in tight spaces where you might not have enough space around your window for draperies. You can also customize the type of fold in your roman shade. Flat shades give a sleek, modern look with neat, tailored pleats. For a more traditional look, the hobbled shade style features softer folds. Roman shades can be upgraded with popular options that make them more convenient or add the perfect finishing touch. Customers love the cordless lift option, which hides the control system to offer cord-free operation. The continuous cord loop option keeps roman shades clutter free, with the controls taking up minimal space on a nearby wall or window frame. Simply pull the loop in either direction to raise or lower the shade with ease. It's an ideal choice for particularly large shades. For the ultimate in convenience, upgrade your roman shades with a motorized lift system. This will allow you to raise all your shades at once with a single press of a button. A hobbled fold can be selected on many roman shades to give it soft folds when fully extended, offering a more classic look for your room. A customer favorite is to upgrade to a top-down/bottom-up lift, which allows you to raise from the bottom or lower from the top, affording a great view out while maintaining privacy. Roman shades offer many finishing touches, including fabric-wrapped, wooden headrails at the top of the shade or decorative trims at the bottom. Privacy liners can be added to block more light and give more nighttime privacy, while blackout liners can keep your room dark and cozy. Liners also protect the shade from sun damage and give you a uniform white backing to the street. Because of the way the fabric folds, roman shades tend to have a taller stack once fully raised, which could obstruct your view from your window. The unique fold of roman shades and operating mechanisms at the top require a lot of depth to hang properly. An inside mount might not be possible in a shallow window. The controls for roman shades are typically hidden behind the fabric. Blinds.com offers designer-quality roman shades to give you a tailored look on any budget.
