Roman shades, drapery, plantation shutters, sheers… with so many styles to choose from, upgrading your window treatments can feel like a daunting process. The first step in finding the ideal window coverings for your home is to get informed about the various options. Today, we’ll tackle Roman shades and let you know why your home deserves Vignette® Roman blinds from Hunter Douglas.
What are Roman Blinds?
As the name suggests, Roman shades originated in Rome, initially used in the Colleseum to protect against the sweltering sun. Before long, wealthy homeowners began to request the shade be installed in their own homes. Centuries later, Roman shades are one of the most popular window treatments for homes both in and out of Rome!
Characterized by their distinctive fabric folds, Roman blinds or shades are a traditional window treatment beloved by homeowners worldwide. This classic window covering instantly elevates any space.
Why Roman Blinds?
Because Roman shades are made of fabric, they are incredibly customizable to any space. Your local window treatment vendor can help you choose a color and design that will bring your design vision to life! All of the cords in Roman shades are neatly concealed, so there won’t be anything distracting from the quiet elegance of your new shades. You can also feel confident that your blinds will look as tidy from the back as from the front.
Roman blinds are an excellent choice for homes with children and/or pets. Long, dangling cords can be a safety hazard, as young children and pets may feel tempted to play with them. Opting for window treatments that forgo the dangling cords in favor of cordless designs helps you create a safe home environment. Combine your Roman shades with home automation technology to fully embrace the safety-conscious cordless lifestyle!
