How To Choose Roman Shades in Omaha, NE?

There are many different types of Hunter Douglas Roman blinds, but choosing the right window shades is not easy. Below are different types you can choose from.

The Modern Take on a Classic

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades take the Roman shades design concept to the next level. These modern Roman shades are available in both rolling and stacking options. The rolling style is the only Roman shade on the market without internal lift cords, and the fabric shade rolls completely into the headrail for unobstructed views.

The stacking style has no exposed cords for enhanced safety in homes with children and pets. The result with either style is an impeccably clean, uncluttered Roman shade with an equally clean, uncluttered back. The gorgeous fabric choices in Vignette Modern Roman Shades are extensive and made from 100% polyester for durability and easy cleaning.

A Roman Shade and Cellular Shade in One

For superior energy efficiency, Solera® Soft Shades combine the soft, sculpted folds of a Roman shade with the insulating design of a cellular shade. The soft folds form pockets that add an extra layer of insulation at the window, saving you energy costs. But you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for function. Solera shades come in a wide variety of luxurious woven and non-woven colors, textures and patterns in both light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.

Customized by You

If modern isn’t for you, there are a multitude of other choices in fabric Roman shades that help you define your style, add convenience, and control natural light and privacy in better ways.

Take Design Studio™ Roman Shades, available in a wide variety of timeless fabrics like cotton, silk and linen. They come in four different styles—flat, hobble, batten front, batten back—to give you slightly different looks in how the shade appears. And an optional lining on the back hides lift strings and, of course, adds another layer to control light and increase insulation.

Inside or Outside Mount?

The placement of your Roman shade depends on several elements.

  • If your home has gorgeous moldings, you may opt to mount your shade on the inside of the window frame and still keep the architectural details on view
  • Or fairly modern and the moldings are rather simple, mount the shades on the outside of the window

This option also provides more light blockage and privacy as the shade is slightly wider than the window. You may even choose to mount the top of the shade several inches above the top of the window frame to add more height to your room.

Enjoy Many Choices

Today’s Roman shades are leaps and bounds ahead of the original window covering. The sheer variety of fabrics and opacities means this versatile shade offers something for everyone. And with innovations in liners and operating systems, the clean, modern Roman shade has never looked better.

How To Choose Roman Shades in Omaha, NE?

Roman Shades: the Timeless Classic in Window Coverings Rich, full-length draperies can certainly add drama and elegance to a room. But sometimes you need a clean, streamlined look at the window, especially if space is limited. Roman shades are a classic staple in décor, and are known for the soft, modern polish they bring to any room. In their basic form, Roman shades are simply fabric window coverings that can be raised or lowered with the help of a cord system and rings sewn on the back of the fabric. When raised, the fabric stacks evenly in horizontal folds.
