What kind of Roman shades should I choose? Here are 6 popular styles
Roman shades offer a desirable marriage of beauty and functionality. Their aesthetic draws its inspiration from the romance of Ancient Rome, while still offering easy operation and varying levels of light blockage. At Athena’s Window Fashions, we offer a wide assortment of Roman shade options. During an in-home consultation, we’d be happy to take your desires and budget into account, and then make recommendations for Roman shades accordingly. Here are six popular Roman shade styles to consider for your home.
Hobbled Roman Shades
Also called cascade Roman shades have soft horizontal folds. This creates a look reminiscent of a waterfall, where whimsical charm meets understated elegance.
Flat Roman Shades
If you want shades that have straight, well-defined lines, then flat Roman shades are worth considering. Flat Roman shades provide a clean look, whether you choose solids, stripes, or a different pattern.
Knife Pleat Roman Shades
With a horizontal stitch across the rib to the back of the shade, knife pleat Roman shades require very little dressing when raising. Many homeowners prefer knife pleat Roman shades (also known as baton back shades) in a solid color because the seams can distort patterns.
Relaxed Roman Shades
Relaxed Roman shades have soft edges that contribute well to a laid-back aesthetic. Available in a broad assortment of fabrics, relaxed Roman shades offer ample opportunity for personalization.
Custom Roman Shades
At Athena’s Window Fashions, we can work with you to create your ideally customized Roman shades. As part of the customization, you can incorporate popular features such as motorized, cordless, and clutch.
