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 are usually opened with a cord mechanism, allowing the user to adjust the height of the covered area. In typical construction, cords run vertically on the outdoor side of the blind running through evenly spaced horizontal stiffener rods or eyelets, and 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.

  • Roman blinds operate by a series of cords threaded through rings on the back, creating loops in the fabric. Any blind with loose, dangling cords is a strangulation hazard to children and pets.
  • Traditional Roman blinds typically have large slats or folds that consume window space, even when they’re stacked or drawn up. Although the look is rich and luxurious, the disadvantages include reduced natural light, a semi-blocked view and a window that seems smaller than it is.
  • Roman blinds come in an array of materials and styles, making them a good window treatment for many spaces.
  • Lighter, cleaner and more uniform appearance when compared to curtains.
