Roman shades provide a classic design option that offers a tried and true method to protect a room's interior from UV rays. They're also great when it comes to providing privacy. Roman-style shades provide complete window coverage from top to bottom. They utilize a smooth, continuous length of fabric that can be lifted whenever you want to let light into the room. The fabric gently folds in beautiful pleats as you raise the blinds. This allows them to maintain the elegant style even when fully opened or fully collapsed. This process is possible by running a cord up the length of the fabric while relying on evenly spaced horizontal stiffener rods to collect the fabric when the cord is pulled.
A Wide Range of Features
As a fabric-based design, you are able to create a custom roman shade to suit your needs. You can choose the style of fabric you want and the lifting mechanism that best suits your windows. Homeowners also have the option to select between a soft-layered pleat and a flat panel effect, further customizing their Roman-style window coverings. While these shades provide full coverage when lowered, they also provide a full, clear view through your window when raised. These qualities provide superior privacy and light control while also making a stylish statement.
Motorized Roman Shades
If you decide you want to go with a cordless option, you may as well consider an electric one too. With motorization, your Roman shades can open and close remotely, and even automatically. With the innovations afforded to us all thanks to brands like Lutron and Somfy, you now have the option to use your smartphone or tablet to control your automated window coverings. But that's not all. You can also give voice commands and have your Roman shades open or close automatically. It's as if you were the living ghost of Julius Caesar himself.
