The Character of Roman Shades
There’s just something about the Roman style of shades that adds a character to any room. They can add a soft feminine touch to an otherwise sharp, dark room. They can also be tailored and masculine. Vertical stripes are an excellent print choice if you’re going for a more masculine look with your shades. Roman blinds make wonderful accents for small windows. With a lack of any stack back and an inside mount, the shades require only the space within the frame. You can also opt for a luxe fabric with an interesting print to have your shade double as a piece of art when lowered.
The nature of Roman blinds eliminates any variable light control but also makes them an ideal choice for rooms where you don’t want any light gaps. The DuoLite® shade is an innovative, first of its kind, the shade that houses both a light-filtering sheer and a room-darkening opaque liner on a single roller. You can have daytime privacy while enjoying light, and nighttime privacy.
There is a seemingly limitless number of fabric options for Roman blinds. You can choose an eye-catching print to draw attention to beautiful architecture, or a neutral hue to allow your shades to blend seamlessly with your room. In general, lighter fabrics make rooms appear larger, while darker colors have the opposite visual effect. However, a vibrant contrast of light walls with dark fabric, or vice versa, can look amazing in the right decor.
- Cotton: A very versatile fabric that is at home in both classic and contemporary settings.
- Linen: This fabric is made of natural fibers, and can give a room a light, casual feeling.
- Silk: One of the most luxurious fabrics in the world, silk will create an air of sophistication and elegance in any room. It is particularly well suited to formal settings.
