Window-Treatments

SHADES

From a tucked Roman to a relaxed flat, shades are a great way to add some privacy without dwarfing the size of a room. There are several styles to choose from that will showcase fabrics in different ways. As with draperies, trims can be added to the top, bottom, and sides of shades to add more interest to the window treatment. Certain styles of shades may work better with window framing than others. For example, long shades are great for French doors while balloon shades look great over wide kitchen windows. Window shades also tend to use less fabric than draperies, which is great when working on a tight budget or with fabric that has been discontinued.

SHADE SELECTION GUIDE & STYLE TYPES

FLAT ROMAN SHADE

This style has a clean simple design. When hanging in the down position the shade is flat and seamless. As the shade is rolled up it folds into horizontal pleats.

Roman Shades tend to be the most popular type of shade, mainly because they are uncluttered and suit most room schemes. Our products typically use Roll Ease hardware to function, but there are other alternatives for hardware depending on the design and how it will be adapted to your window.

DOUBLE PLEATED ROMAN SHADE

This style features alternating rod pockets on the front and back of the shade. These rodded pockets not only act as stiffener for the shade, but can also become aesthetic elements to the overall design.

RELAXED ROMAN SHADE

This style has a relaxed, soft draped “smile” shape when raised. When fully lowered, this style is flat with a straight bottom edge.

TOP PLEATED RELAXED ROMAN SHADE

This unstructured style features a simple pleat at the top center that falls into a relaxed swag at the bottom of the shade.

BALLOON SHADE

This timeless tailored shade features full inverted box pleats, which gives the shade a nice luxurious look.

AUSTRIAN SHADE

This classic style is appropriate for more formal settings and looks particularly elegant when made up with a sheer fabric.

LONDON SHADE

This classic style is appropriate for more formal settings and looks particularly elegant when made up with a sheer fabric.
