Find Favorites: The Best Roman Shades

Window treatments products come in many designs and styles, but to stand the test of time, they must also evolve with today’s home. Roman shades have done just that. Sometimes referred to as roman blinds, Hunter Douglas romans are the shades everyone’s talking about. The best roman shades can be yours. It’s time to find your favorites…

Texture at the Window

A hot trend right now is texture at the window. The best roman shades are made from sophisticated materials; from woven fabrics to organic fibers found in nature. This trend will NOT be ending anytime soon. Along with providing functional elements to improve the comfort of our homes, romans bring shaped dimension. Woven shades rise up to the top of your window when adjusted, allowing light and outdoor views. Created in this process is an elegant finished look of gathered folds bordering your window tops.

The Look of  Modernized Romans

In a nutshell, traditional romans feature folded stacks of fabrics at the top of the window. When the shades begin to close, the folded stacks release and cascade down covering the window as they lower. Within the Hunter Douglas collection, there’s a more modern choice available. The Vignette Modern Roman Shade offers those folds but in a more contemporary, uniform style. Observe the difference below.

As you learn more about the best roman shades for your home, don’t miss out on rolling romans. This innovation is part of the Vignette Modern Roman Shades collections, too. The added feature is a unique operating system that functions as a roller. Instead of stacking the fabric layers, the rolling romans roll up into the headrail instead. Allowing for a larger view out and less fabric at the top. But don’t worry, you won’t lose the look of a traditional roman in the process.
