What is the most versatile type of window treatment? Probably the Roman shades.
Even though they’ve been around for centuries, these shades are still a fashionable option for today’s homes. For a good reason, they’re so popular. These window treatments have a wide variety of styles. Thanks to our wide range of customization possibilities, there is a Roman shade out there for everyone.
Roman Shades: What Are They?
If you’re searching for a window treatment with a touch of elegance, a Roman shade can be the right choice. They have a pull cord or a continuous loop of cording that can raise and lower the shades. The cording governs the shade’s bottom draping. Because of this, cordless Roman blinds are not available from us.
Let’s take a look at different types of these shades.
Standard Flat Fold
With a flat fold, you may achieve a clean, modern look. When the shade is completely lowered, it seems flat. When the fabric is elevated, it forms a tight collection of folds like cellular shades when the light shines through. To go with floor-length drapes, this is the most common Roman shade style. They provide homeowners with more practical light filtering and privacy options than simply closing the drapes when used in tandem.
Adding texture and body to a window treatment is easier with a straightforward fold design. Shades can be dropped all the way down, but the fold is still clearly visible. To make the fold more noticeable, it needs to be lifted. As a result, it’s a bit bulkier and wider than a normal flat fold. You’re probably picturing this when you think of Roman shades.
It’s known as a “hobbled fold” because it makes rounder, softer folds while retaining a straight bottom. There is a delicate fold when it is elevated. The most voluminous effect can be achieved with these shades. When it’s lowered, you can view the curving fold in its entirety.
Also known as a “soft grin” by interior designers, this form of Roman shade is termed “relaxed fold.” The bottom of this shade does not have a rod sewed into it like those more built or fitted looking. Straight, firm lines are drawn across the bottom of the pan by the rod’s use. In its absence, the cloth will not be able to drape in an organically soft curve.
