Roman Shade Styles

Roman Shades


Roman Shades are the most popular style of window treatment, possibly because they are very versatile and tend to suit all styles of home and can often be fitted in places where curtains may not be suitable.

As well as looking neat and stylish, Roman Shades are also very practical especially in rooms where you do not want fabric trailing on the floor, such as in a bathroom or kitchen. Roman Shades can be made with just lining, or a combination of interlining, and / or blackout lining to ensure the finished blind meets a client’s requirements.

All our Roman Shades are supplied with a cordless lift system conforming to Health Canada’s corded window treatment regulations.

Our Roman Shades are about 90% hand made, a machine is used just to prepare the linings. This gives a high quality finish to each shade, with just a few visible (hand) stitches on the face of the blind. 

To arrange an in-home or design centre visit to discuss your individual requirements, 

We offer a choice from a vast collection of Designer Fabrics from Alendel, Unique, JF Fabrics, Maxwell, Avant Gard, Kravet and many other collections.

NOTE: Health Canada Regulations prevent us from offering corded roman shades with cords longer than 8″

Cordless controls do away with the need for strings and cords.  Your Roman Shades will stay exactly where you want by simply raising or lowering to a desired position.

Motorization is available with rechargeable, battery or hardwired motors.  This are a perfect solution if some of your Roman Shades are hard to access OR if your windows are tall and can’t be reached to raise or lower the Roman Shades.

Usually a combination of corded (with chain guide), Cordless and/or motorized will allow us to provide Roman Shades in any room in your home.

Our workroom crafts each and every Roman Shade, hand stitched and finished to provide you with the finished look for your home.

Roman shades add a formal finish.

They’re affordable and accommodating when it comes to room design and style. This makes them a great choice for a large portion of designers and consumers alike. Some of the characteristics of the roman shades that make them a great choice are:

1. Firstly, roman shades offer a simple look. They have a minimalist style that is hard to achieve with a lot of window coverings, They have no difficult installation requirements. They require no especially difficult measurements. They require no especially difficult installation techniques. They’re a simple addition with a simple, convenient function.

2. Secondly, roman shades are easily incorporated into any room’s design. They do not overshadow the already present decor or style. Many window coverings are overwhelming; roman shades avoid this particular issue. They fulfill their desired function and they add to the decorative style of the room.

3. Proper Function: Roman shades are easy and they’re quick and they fulfill all the basic functions of privacy and light control that created the need for the entire window covering industry.

4. Lastly, roman shades offer easy customization options. Manufacturers of roman shades typically provide massive ranges of colours and pattern options. The roman shade is one of the most versatile window covering options when it comes to decorative styles and colour specifications. Incorporating custom fabrics or patters makes the roman shade one of the most customizable window covering options.

Fulfilling the basic function of the window covering without disrupting current decor/design of a room is made simple with the roman shades. When it comes right down to it the very simplistic nature of the product makes it the option for many. They offer privacy, light blocking/control, easy installation, streamlined elegance, easy customization, etc. Why wouldn’t they be one of the most popular options in the industry?
