Roman shades work with any style decor in just about any window size They’re a gorgeous, functional way to add classic style to a room. If you have a certain look in mind, we can make it happen. Roman shades are fabricated in a variety of styles, but constructed (flat) or unconstructed (relaxed) are the most popular:

Unlined, constructed roman shade with horizontal seams

Constructed shades

These shades have visible horizontal seams in the fabric or batons in the lining. Constructed shades are crisp and form a very clean stack when raised. These can sit mounted inside your window trim, or sit outside of the window frame.

 

 

Unconstructed, unlined roman shade

Unconstructed shades

These shades, in contrast to constructed, don’t have visible horizontal seams. They   can lay perfectly flat when drawn down, or be made with a swag at the bottom of the shade. Distinctive Window Treatment Plus can fabricate a roman shade any way you’d like.

 

Constructed, blackout, lined roman shade

Blackout shades

These shades include a blackout lining layer of fabric that keeps the sun out when completely drawn. They work well for maintaining privacy, too.

 

 

Fabric options

The right fabric for roman shades can add the texture and color a room needs, along with the right amount of natural light. The most common styles we work with are woven fabrics, see-through or fully lined options.

 

Fabric brands we trust

Lee Jofa, Holland and Sherry, Robert Allen, Kravet, Highland Court, Angela Brown, Salamandre, Donghia, Rogers & Goffigan, Duralee, Kvadrat, Carnegie, Knoll, Kasmir, Maxwell, Création Baumann, Pindler and Pindler, Michael’s Textiles,  Maharam, and many, many more.

Translucent lined

These are fabricated with lighter lining to allow some amount to light into the room when the shades are down.

 

Sheer shades

These are decorative shades with light, see through fabric. They can add some privacy and sun blockage, while bringing softness that transforms the look of a room.

Why Choose Motorized Roman Shades

Motorized, or electric, shades have become a standard rather than a luxury. They’re especially popular in NYC apartments and many other homes we service. Motorization is ideal for any large or hard to reach shades. Choose the time of day to raise and lower them automatically, or push a button on your device to easily control natural light in your house any time.

Motorized shades and blinds are available in a variety of materials that let them blend them into your existing décor, or stand out and make a bold impression.

Motorization provides convenience and makes your home safer by eliminating cords and chains.
