ROMAN SHADES

Hunter Douglas Showcase Centurion Dealer

Elegance and Simplicity

Roman shades add an elegant feel to any room, but some rooms may appreciate them more. As with all varieties of window shades, the options are endless, which can be both a blessing and a curse!

Roman shades come in a variety of shapes, styles and colors. Most often when people think of Roman Shades they think in terms of fabrics; different textures, colors and materials. However, you may find that you prefer wooden or bamboo roman shades.

Roman shades come from a variety of manufacturers or can be custom made with any fabric. While we favor Hunter Douglas, some other top brands in the field include Bali, Levolor and Comfortex. Each brand has their own spin on the roman shade. Like most things, the different companies have advantages and disadvantages in terms of style and functionality. Some of the popular options available through these companies include blackout, cordless, privacy, and even remote controlled options.

These features and perks are nice and may or may not be advantageous to you and your particular need. They will cost a bit more, and they can be added to almost any style.

What Roman Shade Choice is Right for You?

One of the choices you will need to make is the opacity of the roman blind. If it is a fabric blind, you can get sheer, semi sheer, semi opaque or opaque. Of course, within these opacity categories you have dozens of fabric styles, textures and colors to choose from. Plain colors can add an elegant theme and compliment the colors in the room. However, textures, weaves and patterns can add an air of sophistication and help create a unique feel for your space.

A Variety of Designs

As far as design goes, you have the choice of many styles. For instance, with fabric roman shades, you have the choice of a flat roman shade or a relaxed roman shade. If you want custom made, you can choose from a hobbled roman shade, a perma-pleat roman shade, a cascade roman shade, or a dual fold roman shade. These all add character to the classic look and represent just a fraction of the style choices available! Sound overwhelming? Not to worry. That’s what our designers are here for. They can help you decide what is the best for your home or room and make the process fun!

Eco Friendly and Green

Are you an eco friendly shopper? Bamboo roman shades just might be the perfect complement to your home and they are a great investment. Bamboo roman shades are renewable resources and are very sturdy. They can be combined with blackout shades to provide a nice wooden look while effectively blocking light. Some bamboo roman shades are made through a woven pattern; others are more simple horizontal strips. Either provides a warm, classy look, but a woven shade will let in less light and provide more privacy.

Overall, roman shades are a classy, elegant addition to any room. Fabric roman shades come in a variety of styles from classic simplicity to highly designed flair. Bamboo roman shades offer a great eco friendly alternative and bring a natural warmth to any room.
