Roman blinds are synonymous with timeless sophistication. They have the power to drastically alter the mood of your space and are an investment that can add value to your home.
We offer our customers a range of options to customise your roman blinds to suit the desired look and feel of your home. Choose from a multitude of textures and hues in our stunning fabric collection, and add the finishing touch with an array of batton, pelmet and operation options.
The main mode of light control achieved with panel glides is the fabric itself. You can choose from blockout, light-filtering and sunscreen fabrics, each providing a different level of light control.
Blockout fabrics, as the name suggests, allow no light to filter through the fabric. Blockout fabrics are often coated or sealed with a backing to ensure minimal light leaks through the material weave. This category of fabric is great to vastly cut down light in bedrooms and media rooms or provide ultimate privacy in bathrooms and public-facing windows. Blockouts are also great for reflecting and reducing heat from your home.
It’s important to remember that even with a blockout fabric, it’s hard to completely block light from coming through your windows. Light leaks will occur around the edge of your roman blind, whether inside or outside mounted. If you require a complete light block solution, talk to one of our experts about the right solution for your needs.
Light-filtering fabrics are soft fabrics with a weave that allows a small amount of light to filter through. These fabrics are softer in feel than the sunscreens so they work beautifully with plantation or classic panel designs whilst still providing a muted light solution. Light-filters are ideal for living areas that do not require full privacy or light block.
Roman blinds are available in classic or plantation designs.
In a classic design, the fabric is gathered at intervals to create a folded detail. See gallery images.
Plantation design roman blinds are similar to the classic design, however they feature aluminium or timber battens placed at intervals instead of a fold.
Ask your expert product consultant to show you samples of classic and plantation design panels.
Roman Blind Tips
- Due to the folds, softer fabrics work best with roman blinds
- Roman blinds, particularly the larger ones can be heavy and so the fabric is likely to drop by a centimetre or two. For this reason, it’s best to outside mount your roman blinds so the fabric doesn’t rest on the bottom of the window sill.
