Your custom roman shades will form the backdrop of your space. Coordinating with the right color and texture will take the styling in your home to the next level. Our romans are available in everything from lavish, bold hues to soft, subtle neutrals and from rich, warm weaves to fresh, sheer linens. And the best part is that you have expert designers on your side! Our team will help you discover the perfect fabric for your unique spaces.


Step 2: Pick a Style

If you’re familiar with romans, you probably know them as a stacking shade. Folds of fabric gather neatly under the headrail as you adjust them open.

But did you know that our Vignette Modern roman shades can also roll? With the rolling style, the folds of fabric roll right up into the headrail. So which one is best for you? We’ll help you decide based on the fit you need and the features you want.

Step 3: Personalize the Features

The features you choose for your custom roman shades will transform your home and your lifestyle. They’ll help you shape the ideal atmosphere and make life inside better than ever! Selecting top down bottom up function on stacking-style romans means you can savor daylighting without sacrificing privacy and energy efficiency.

And, choosing dual shade function on rolling-style Vignette romans lets you enjoy light-filtering and room-darkening on the same window! A secondary blackout shade simply roll into place whenever you need it.

Step 4: Decide on Operation

How do you want to operate your shades? The right operating system for you will work in harmony with the way you use your shades and your individual lifestyle. For some, manual operation makes the most sense. Our custom roman shades are available in both cordless and cord-safe options. These Solera Soft roman shades offer the beautiful design of sculpted fabrics, just another choice when selecting romans for your home!

For others, motorization is the way to go. Allowing for touch-of-a-button and scheduled adjustments, along with integration into your smart home system, custom roman shades with PowerView motorization truly move in time with your life.
