What are Roman blinds?
10 March 2014 | general
Some of you may be wondering what Roman blinds are and how they differ from your traditional Vertical or Venetian blinds. Roman blinds are different from other styles in that they stack up evenly overlapping on each other when being opened, however when they are open they are visibly smooth, not bumpy or ribbed like typical vertical blinds.
Roman blinds are usually opened with a cord mechanism, allowing the user to adjust the height of the covered area. In this case, the opened portion of the blinds remains smooth, while the very top will be stacked evenly.
They are available in many different kinds of materials, from wood to fabric, as well as natural materials such as bamboo and in two styles; soft layered pleat or flat panel effect.
Roman blinds offer a clean-cut contemporary look that is ideal for today’s modern décor. They provide your windows with a clear view when fully open and total privacy when drawn at night.
