Tips on Buying Roman Blinds
Why Roman Blinds are so Popular?
Roman blinds are one of the most popular types of blinds. Between their endless styling options and functional use, they are a great option for many homes. If you’ve been considering getting new blinds for your home, Roman blinds might be the perfect ones for you. Here are some reasons why Roman blinds are so popular.
What are Roman Blinds?
Roman blinds are a fabric window shade that stack up when opened, similar to roller blinds. When the blinds are down, the blinds appear as a smooth fabric. Roman blinds were invented over 2,000 years ago during the age of the Roman Empire, which is why they were given that name. The functional yet beautiful design of Roman blinds have held up to the times - making it one of the most popular types of blinds.
Great for Any Window Size
One great thing about Roman blinds is that you can use them for any sized window - even smaller ones. If you’ve tried, it can be tough to find blinds for small windows. While you may be able to get them in the right size, some types of blinds or curtains can look bulky in small windows. This can detract from the soft, subtle look of smaller windows.
Roman blinds won’t overpower a small window, since they don’t take up a lot of space and are compact when pulled up. If you’re using Roman blinds on a bigger window, you can also pair your blinds with curtains to add depth and personality to your room.
Roman Blinds are Versatile with Style
Roman blinds are extremely versatile. Since they fit in the window and are smaller than curtains, you can use fun and patterned prints on them without it looking too over the top. While patterned curtains may look good in a larger room in a large window, they may be overwhelming in a smaller space. So if you’re looking for blinds for a smaller space, but you don’t want to give up fun colours and designs, Roman blinds are a great window furnishing option. With all of the different fabric choices available, you’ll be able to find something that matches your vision. Roman blinds will give your home a smooth, sleek design that other types of blinds won’t give you.
Light and Glare Control
Roman blinds offer excellent light and glare control under the Australian sun! They are great for living rooms, dining rooms, and kitchens. They are great for allowing small amounts of natural light through, depending on the fabric. When you open the blinds, they will stack neatly at the top of the window, taking up very little space. We carry a variety of blockout, translucent, and sheer fabrics to ensure that you find the perfect set of blinds.
