The Function and Sophistication of Luxurious Roman Shades
Roman shades are one of the most popular styles of window coverings. Available in several different types, fabric roman shades feature soft drapes that produce crisp folds when lifted. Homeowners can easily raise or lower roman shades using a cord or motorized system that evenly stacks horizontal folds as they retract to allow additional light into your living areas. The convenience of raising and lowering your roman shades enables you to appreciate the sunrise on a warm Texas morning but also enjoy a cozy night on the couch free of glare from the neighborhood street light. With their elegant, traditional look, roman shades by Hunter Douglas elicit a sophisticated feel among homeowners and guests alike.
Different Types of Roman Shades in Plano, TX
Roman shades come in a variety of styles, differing based on the way the fabric folds. While each is an efficient, luxurious addition to any den or living room, you may find that one best suits your home’s aesthetic. The four main types of fabric roman shades include:
- Standard flat fold – Homeowners who want a roman shade with a contemporary look are thrilled with this style. When it is lowered completely, the window shade appears flat. However, it retracts into a neat bunch of folds similar to cellular shades when it is raised.
- Plain fold – A plain fold adds texture and body to your window treatment. The fold is visible at all times but becomes more pronounced when raised.
- Soft fold – Otherwise known as the hobbled fold, this style maintains a straight edge along its bottom but offers soft, round folds. This is the most robust-looking type of roman shade.
- European fold – This type is sometimes called a relaxed fold and does not include a rod sewn into its bottom. Lacking a rod causes the European fold roman shade to drape in a natural curve.
Why You Should Choose Roman Shades for Your Home
Roman shades are desirable for a multitude of reasons, including flexibility, functionality, ease of use, and beauty. They are perfect for your home in Dallas-Fort Worth because they are versatile and come in a wide range of styles. Among the top reasons for choosing roman shades for your home are:

How to Determine if Roman Shades Are Right for You
The versatility that roman shades provide makes them suitable for most homes and living spaces. In addition to the many benefits of fabric roman shades, there are numerous ways to hang, mount, or present the window coverings in your home. They are ideal for homeowners and interior designers who appreciate a luxurious, contemporary feel that does not overpower the room’s existing decorations.
The staff at Read Design Window Fashions is happy to address any concerns or questions you have about roman shades. We recognize they may not always be great for households with pets who like to climb or for people who want window coverings that create a fully dark environment. Bring factors like that to our attention. We will help you find an option that satisfies your needs.
