Are Roman shades right for me?


If you’re looking for a window treatment with more texture than typical blinds but lighter than drapery, Roman shades may be just what you need. This type of shade consists of a single panel that lays flat and unbroken when extended, but pulls up into a series of neat, horizontal pleats. They allow you to easily customize the amount of privacy you prefer and light you’d like to block.

What styles are available?


Roman shades come in a wide variety of blind styles to accommodate your current décor, from casual flat pleats to classic weaves to those featuring dramatic colored prints. There are shades in every color for you to choose from, so determine what will work best for your décor, and how much light you want to diffuse. Less light will be able to filter through the opaque colors.

What’s the difference between inside mount and outside mount Roman shades?


Inside mount and outside mount represent the two ways you can hang your Roman shades, which is essentially an aesthetic preference. Inside mount Roman shades sit within the recessed window frame so that the shades are flush with the wall, while outside mount Roman shades are hung outside of the frame on the wall and cover a larger area.

How do I determine the right size?


This depends on whether you’ve chosen inside or outside mount Roman shades. For inside mount, carefully measure the inside of the window frame from top to bottom, from left to right, and the depth of the window. For outside mount, measure from where you plan to hang the shade to where you'd like it to drop, and then measure from side to side. Add 2" at the top to allow for mounting brackets.
