Cascading Designs VS Flat Stack
Did you know there’s more than one style of roman shades? Two of those design choices refer to the folds: waterfall and flat stack. Each offers their own unique look, but the function remains the same. Here’s how: Roman shades fold as they rise and then unfold and fall into place when they are lowered. When choosing roman shades, you decide the look that works best for your space. Whether it’s the softer, curved look of cascading romans, or the uniform look of flat stack, they both will add beauty to your home.
Here’s an example, both stunning accents to your windows.
Perfectly Pleasing Pleats
If you love the look of pleats, we have one more option for you when choosing roman shades. Trained fabrics do not have a built in structure to maintain their uniform look. Instead, they are made with materials that allow them to rise up uniformly and fall into place with perfect pleats each time. The Solera® Collection is where you will find roman shades that will maintain their structure with no internal boning.

Undeniably, roman shades are beautiful just the way they are, but when combined with the simple operating system of roller shades? AMAZING!

We can help you decide when rolling romans are the right choice for you!
