What Are Roman Blinds?
Miami Roman Blinds are similar to roller blinds but give you a completely different look. They are generally made of thicker weight material that can be used for room darkening effects. The fabric folds over when opened, and cords or strings are not used to hold or lift the fabrics.
Made of many options in materials, the Roman blinds create a soft drapery effect that’s sophisticated and clean looking. Options come in choices that add opulence and richness to your space. They’re perfect for easy operation, with a simple pull to open and close. Motorization options are also available at Blinds South, Inc., where we can install an easy open and close system that suits your needs.
Your choices come in many colors and materials, but for Roman blinds, you’ll have the options of:
- Unconstructed Flat Roman Blinds – These are the simplest form of the Roman blinds, made from a single piece of fabric that hands flat over the window.
- Constructed Flat Roman Blinds – This style of blind gives you a flat look but a with more clean, modern appeal.
- Relaxed Roman Blinds – The name describes this blind to the tee. Commonly known as the London shade, these window coverings offer you a casual, unconstructed material that gently bows, or curves, when raised.
- Balloon Roman Blinds – More than just a traditional balloon look, today’s balloon Romans are highly decorative, many with inverted box pleats and other more sophisticated design elements for your home or office space.
- Butterfly Roman Blinds – These add a swag and small winged offshoots near the bottom to bring additional luxury.
Austrian Roman Blinds offer you the most in formal, traditional elegance. The style of this blind is achieved with delineated vertical and horizontal rows of ruched material that’s gathered and scalloped along the bottom. This design requires the use of twice as much material than the typical flat roman, making them the more expensive but more elegant choice.
Tucked and Pleated Roman Blinds have uniform folds that are sewn every four to five inches apart. This gives a romantic quality to the blind, and looks wonderful alone or with a set of draperies. They are created with cascading panels that stack neatly on top of each other when the blinds are raised. These are modern style blinds that bring a zen like design element to your design.
