Explore the Best Roman Shades for Your Home

Thankfully, we live in a time where window treatments come in various designs and styles. With so many options available, it’s essential to choose ones that remain timeless and can adapt to modern homes. Roman shades have mastered this balance. Often called roman blinds, they’re the most popular shades in interior design. They seamlessly stand the test of time as their line of products evolves while innovations and new interior design styles take over. If you are searching for the best roman shades for any room in your home, we know how to help! 

Bring Texture to Your Windows

A popular trend right now is adding texture to windows. It adds dimension, visual interest, and more personality to the space. Some of these window treatments incorporate woven fabrics and natural organic fibers. The textured shades are highly sought after and are here to stay because they are versatile, functional, and easy to customize. When raised, they gather in folds, allowing light and outdoor views to shine through. When lowered over the window, these folds flatten out, providing a sleek look.

Modernize Roman Shades 

Traditional roman shades display fabrics in a folded stack at the top of the window. Once you close them, the fabrics cascade down, creating shaped folds. One of our collections of Hunter Douglas roman shades has been designed with a modern look, even reflected in the name. Vignette Modern roman shades showcase beautiful folds in a sleek, contemporary style.

As you start looking for window coverings for your home, remember to explore rolling roman shades. They combine rolling operation with roman style. The design prevents the bottom profile from stacking as the shade rises. Instead, they easily retreat into the headrail. They feature simple folds that stay in place as the fabrics roll up and out of sight.

Do you find yourself interested in a sleeker look? The flat front design featured on vignettes has a beautiful “knife pleat.” This is great if you want more visual interest in your home while staying low profile. This is akin to a roller shade. While these two versions of rolling roman shades are similar from afar, the details on each can sway your opinion as you search for the ideal coverings to fit your home’s look.

Explore Traditional Style 

If you haven’t considered traditional romans yet, you should! They feature fabrics in solids, patterns, or prints. This may be ideal for you if you want something a little bolder and wish to customize the look and feel. Fortunately, there are a variety of fold styles for these shades. If you are interested in fabric romans, you can make selections about how the folds appear and in which material you love.
