Roman ShadesRoman shades are a classic and elegant window covering that can be used in almost any home decor. We offer a soft fold roman as well as the popular flat fold roman as well. When open, roman shades create a layered look on the window. Many choose roman shades because when pulled up it creates a valance or topper giving the window a finished look. Roman shades do offer the cordless option to get rid of the pull cord. There are over 200 fabric choices to make your roman shades from to show your unique style. Also you can line the roman shade on the back with either a light filtering lining to give you privacy. You also have the option to add a blackout lining to the back for those rooms where you need to control how much light comes into the room. There is also a thermal lining that can be added to drastically cut down on the heat or cold coming in through the window. Roman shades have the top down bottom up feature available.
