Roman Shades Decorating Ideas

May 14, 2015

Unlimited Design Possibilities

There are so many styles and choices available when it comes to dressing your windows using Roman shades. If you want a traditional, casual or contemporary look, there is sure to be a design available as well as an abundance of fabrics and trim options to choose from.

Our diverse selection of Roman shade styles combine the look of a soft drapery with the functionality of a shade in a variety of design options to choose from. To help you understand what your available choices are, consider the following:

 

 

Batten Front
Battens, or tunnels, are sewn at regular intervals on the face side of the shade.  This style is especially well-suited for stripes and patterns since the battens on the front won’t interfere with the pattern.

Batten Back
Battens, or tunnels, are inverted creating a soft, tailored look when lowered and defined folds when raised.  This style looks best in solids or subtle patterns and textures.

Hobble
Hobble shades are a traditional Roman shade style defined by soft fabric folds that cascade from top to bottom.

Flat
Ideal for showing off large-scale, bold patterns and stripes, the flat fold has no horizontal seams or stitching across the face of the fabric creating a clean, smooth, finished look.

Traditional™
Soft, billowy, contoured folds with a modern twist from Vignette® Modern Roman Shades.  With no exposed, dangling or pooling lift cords; they are a good choice for enhanced child and pet safety at the window. These shades have a smooth, uniform backing so they look as beautifully finished from the outside of your home as they do from the inside.

Tailored™
The flat, crisp, contemporary tailored fold available with Vignette Modern Roman Shades features a streamlined look for more casual or contemporary settings and comes with the same enhanced safety and outside-backing characteristics as the Vignette Traditional fold style.
