Roman Shades

Combining Utility & Fashion

Roman shades originated in ancient Rome, when homeowners hung wet cloths over their windows to trap dust from the outside and keep the heat in check. Over time, this practical solution evolved into an aesthetic expression of the homeowner.

With a wide range of fabrics, patterns, and colors to choose from, they effortlessly add a touch of sophistication and charm to any room while providing excellent light control and privacy. Today, Roman window shades are a great combination of utility and fashion.

Are Roman shades out of style?

Roman shades have been around for nearly 2,000 years, so it's no surprise that some homeowners may be concerned that they are an “outdated” choice. However, interior designers and window treatment experts continue to recommend and add custom Roman shades to homes. That is because Roman shades are a “timeless” option for homes!

Do Custom Roman Shades increase home value?

The answer to this question depends on the type of shades and the situation in which they are being used. In general, window shades can add value to a home by providing insulation and increasing privacy. They can also add aesthetic value to a home, making it look more attractive to potential buyers.

How deep does a window need to be for a Roman shade?

The depth of the window will depend on the type of Roman shade you choose. Generally, you should look for Roman shades that are at least 1.5 inches deeper than the width of the window.

Are Roman shades worth it?

Roman shades are definitely worth it. They are an attractive, timeless window treatment that can add a stylish look to any room. They are also easy to install, provide excellent insulation and light control, and come in a variety of colors and fabrics. Plus, the cost of Roman shades is often lower than that of other window treatments.
