The classic, timeless look of the Roman Shades has been prized since…you guessed it, Roman times. The benefits of Roman Shades are almost as well known as they are loved by homeowners and designers alike. This customizable window treatment is easy to use, and never seems to lose its ability to suit the aesthetic of ever-evolving design trends. However, the Roman Shade’s unique upgrades and features are what really make this particular window treatment stand out from the rest of the blinds and shades available in today’s market. 

Not sure that roman shades are the right choice for your home or office windows? Consider some of the unique upgrades, features and benefits of roman shades.

Choose from Three Types of Roman Shades: 

  • Standard Roman Shades are made of durable polyester and are an easy to use, customizable window treatment suitable for almost any budget. 
  • Envirofusion Shades are made with a cellular shade liner that makes them a great energy efficient window shade option. 
  • Bamboo Roman Shades or woven wood look Roman Shades offer even more options with a woven wood look that can add much-needed natural textures to a home or office. 

Choose from Various “Fold” Styles for Your Roman Shades: 

  • “Tear Drop” / Hobbled Fold: This Roman Shade design upgrade uses additional material between panels to create a fuller look for your finished shade. 
  • Flat Fold: The flat fold Roman Shade is designed to pull the fabric of the shade tight between each panel to create a more modern contemporary look for home or office windows. 
  • Duofold / Top-Down Bottom-Up: With the top down bottom up option, the Roman Shade can be raised from the bottom up in the typical fashion, but it can also be lowered from the top down. This unique Roman Shade feature is a great idea when additional light control options are needed or if you have a spectacular view to accommodate. Adding the top down bottom up feature to roman shades increases the flexibility of this already accommodating shade design making it even easier to obtain privacy with light filtering functionality. 
  • European Style Fold: Roman shades with the European style fold curve up on the sides as the shade is raised to soften the final look of the window treatment, but since this fold style typically requires manual adjusting, it’s not the best choice for frequently used shades. 
  • Seamless Fold: The seamless fold roman shade is exactly what it sounds like – a simple, tailored roman shade design without any visible horizontal seams.
