Roman shades are an incredibly versatile window covering thanks to the endless range of fabrics and colours they come in. They also come in several styles so they and each create a different look and feel. Ask our experts to recommend shades that suit your needs and complements your décor the most.
Some of the popular styles include:
- CLASSIC OR FLAT
This style is characteristic for gentle folds when raised and lies flat when lowered. Consider this option when you do not want a stitch or fold to interrupt the pattern.
This style works great to add dimension to the window as it features gentle folds when raised and maintains the folded appearance when lowered. Hobbled shades are a great fit for to plain or small scale patterned fabrics as a large pattern will be interrupted by the folds. They are also suitable for superior light control as the stitch lines are concealed behind the folds of the fabric.
This style is characterized by the impression of a little “smile” when lowered as the center hangs farther down than the edges creating a gentle curve at the bottom of the shade.
- KNIFE PLEAT OR BATTEN BACK
Compared to the Flat style, this style offers more texture when lowered due to the horizontal lines that are created where the battens are sewn into the fabric at regular intervals. Structure to the shade is added with battens that also help the fabric collapse into even folds when the shade is raised.
