They can be used as a separate window treatment fitted outside the window or fitted inside the window alcove and combined with curtains coated look.

Made from your choice of pleasing fabric colors and patterns, Roman shades have become very popular these days.

Roman shades add elegance to any room without spending a fortune. You can also combine them with other window coverings such as pleated or Venetian blinds.These blinds are typically made with light or medium weight fabrics, often lined. Roman shades are easy to operate and fold up smoothly, with accordion-style pleats, similar to the Venetian blinds.

Many times the Roman shades will be made using a single color for the shade itself, and a complementary color and pattern creates the matching top. Roman shades allow you to flexibly control the amount of light coming into your room and how much privacy you want.

Depending on how your room is situated and whether you need more or less privacy and ability to block out sunlight, you can simply choose a heavier or lighter weight fabric for your Roman shades.

You can also combine Roman blinds with other window treatment options, such as draperies with tie backs, to further control light and privacy, as well as giving your window treatment a more unique design.
