Roman Shades

Roman Shades from Atlanta Discount Blinds

Roman shades are a type of window covering used to block out the sun. Roman shades are different from standard window shade in that they stack up evenly when being opened; however, when they are open they are visibly smooth, not bumpy or ribbed like typical vertical shades or blinds

Roman shades can be opened with a cord mechanism or can use a cordless mechanism. Each mechanism allows the user to adjust the height of the covered area. In typical construction, cords run vertically on the outer side of the blind running through evenly spaced horizontal stiffener rods or eyelets on the back of the shade and then attached at the bottom of the blind. In this case, the opened portion of the blinds remains smooth, while the bottom will be stacked evenly. These shades can also be made with top-down-bottom-up mechanisms which allow only the top of the shade to come down; allowing for privacy yet still letting in natural light from the top of the window.

Styles[edit]

These shades are available in a variety of styles. Both “looped” and “classic” They are designed to create depth and dimension. Looped shades, also known as “hobbled” shades, have folds that cascade down the face of the shade to help create depth, while “classic” roman shades offer a pleated design that can be batten front or batten back. Roman shades are also available in a seamless style, which feature a smooth or flat shade face, also called “waterfall” style.

  • REVERSE ROLL Shade has no valance for top treatment. It rolls in a reverse direction away from the glass to conceal roll and roller mechanism. This is a great solution if you are looking for a clean non-intrusive look on your windows.
  • With a standard roll, your fabric will lay flat against your window and raise up onto the top bar from behind when the shade is raised. This may cause the top fabric roll to stick out further from your window, but it also will create better light coverage.
  • Your other option is called a reverse roll. With this style, the shade fabric will wrap over the top roll and hang in front of your window like a waterfall. As you might imagine, this will create a bigger light gap, because the fabric isn’t technically touching your window, but you’ll get a cleaner, designer look. Whichever style you choose, your roller shades will effortlessly glide up and down your window.
