Roman window shades get a bad wrap. I think it’s all about finding the type of shade that suits your rooms style. Believe it or not you can find a shade that works with just about whatever you may have going on. You just gotta know the different types of roman shades, and what their look means.
Whether you want something modern, or perhaps even traditional, there is a shade that you will no doubt love. These are by far some of the most functional as well as decorative window treatments you can get. Plus, these can always be used alone, or paired with drapery.
They include uniform folds, and can function bottom up, or top down. You can use them with either a simple cord, or make them motorized by button. They’re often used in a traditional or contemporary style living space, depending on the fabric you choose.
Informal and looks very casual. It can create a very soft look which is ideal for a more romantic setting. Great in a bedroom or dining room. Thinking about achieving that beach cottage look? This is a great direction to go in.
Very sleek with minimal lines. It is by far the most simplest style of shade out there. It’s a great choice for a contemporary or modern look.
The inverted pleats make wings at the bottom which is what makes it resemble the tulip. I think these are very sweet looking and highly decorative. They create the look of elegance and are often paired with a traditional or shabby chic aesthetic.
The pleats are stitched in the back, which form the soft horizontal folds. Each seams has dowels sewn inside of it. It’s similar to the pleated shades, however the shade draws up in various sizes. This sleek style is a great contemporary look.
This is a reverse Cascade shade. There are also dowels sewn in to the pleats and creates a much more streamlined appearance. It is inspired after the Japanese Shoji screens and is very contemporary.
