Redecorating your home, no matter how major or minor the intended works, can be a daunting task. With so many different and overlapping things to bear in mind it can be easy to overlook the less obvious, though no less important, aspects of a room. Window coverings are often the unfortunate victims of an exhausted budget, a fast-approaching deadline, or simply the fatigue after a long project, and so do not always get the consideration they deserve and need. When the final choice has the potential to affect the feel of a room, it is important to consider your options carefully.
Although they have been around for many years, people are realizing the effectiveness of Roman Shades in solving their window-dressing dilemmas, as they are both functional and attractive, while offering enough variety in style and material to entirely personalize your home. They offer warmth and sophistication, capturing the classic and elegant drapery effect of heavy curtains, without imposing on the room in the same way that heavy curtains do.
Roman shades are made of soft fabrics that gather into pleats as it is raised, allowing light to enter the room and tucking much of the shade itself up and out of sight. This folding away of most of the shade allows for a spacious yet luxurious feel when they are raised due to the softer fabrics. These fabrics can also be lined with a reflective material that acts as a layer of insulation, reflecting heat either back in or out, depending on your intended use.
So when your next decorating project begins, or you simply fancy a minor adjustment to your current living space, consider how Roman Shades would work in the intended room. Whether you opt for heavy fabrics to keep heat in or out of a room, or a lighter fabric for a breezy, ever-summer feel, Roman Shades may be just what you are looking for. The enduring style has been popular since days gone past, and is still as stylistically effective today as it ever was.
