Should Roman shades be inside or outside mount?
Roman shades can be installed both inside and outside the window frame depending upon your need and the depth of your windows. Structurally we believe that soft fold and dog-ear Roman shade would make a better fit as outside mount than the inside mount.
Do Roman shades go all the way down?
In addition, Roman shades do not offer the flexibility of having vanes to tilt open or closed; Romans are either up or down. While this is also true for honeycomb or roller shades, it is something to take into consideration when making your window treatment selection.
Why are Roman shades so expensive?
Because they’re made to fit a window’s exact dimensions, Roman shades are pretty expensive to invest in for a rental apartment. Still, that doesn’t stop us from loving them—their neat folds are just so modern and clean compared to swoopy curtains. Ultimately, the heart wants what the heart wants, no matter your budget.
Can I put Roman shades over blinds?
Generally, mounting roman shades over the existing window blinds means you are opting for the exterior mount (outside of the window frame). You cannot have inside mount for both blinds and shades and it will be cluttered and shabby. Outside mount Roman Shades will look beautiful.
Can you hang Roman blinds on a curtain rod?
Yes you can hang roman blinds on a rod. Hang them straight on the curtain rod. Just put a rod pocket in the top and don’t gather them on the rod –have them lay flat. To make a rod pocket for them just fold over the top and sew a seam on the bottom of the pocket.
How do you hang Roman blinds without brackets?
Place the head rail over the top window trim and center it over the window. Place a bubble level on top of the head rail and position the blind so it remains level on the top window trim. Mark the holes you drilled onto the head rail by placing a screw into each hole then pressing the screws into the wood.
What is the best fabric for Roman shades?
The main reason linen and linen blends are the best fabrics for Roman shades has to do with the weight and structure they provide. The other great thing about linen is that it can be transformed into a variety of colors and textures to suit almost any design style.
How deep should inside mount blinds be?
Inside – Mounted Vertical Blinds Inside mount blinds are installed inside the window casing or door, or wall to wall in a room. The window casing must be at least 2 3/4″ deep for flush track mount or 3 3/4″ deep for flush vane mount (See diagram above).
Are Roman shades in style?
Roman shades have been around forever, but their long history doesn’t mean that they aren’t a stylish choice for contemporary homeowners. They’re immensely popular—and for good reason! These window treatments can be dressed up or down to suit an array of styles.
Does it matter if Roman blinds are too long?
Approaching the problem of roman shades that are too long is not difficult. If you have roman shades that you love but they don’t fit the length of your window, you can easily make an adjustment and provide some cost effective budget decorating.
What is the difference between Roman shades and cellular shades?
Roman shades generally consist of a single piece of fabric that drops down into a smooth piece, but when raised stacks into an evenly-spaced ribbed structure. Roman shades do not offer the same level of thermal resistance as honeycomb shades, however, some fabric will still offer some amount of heat retention/blocking.
How far up does a Roman blind go?
Roman blinds will cover 22cm-30cm or so in the pulled up position. A waterfall design will cover more, since each fold is made progressively longer; when the blind is up, each fold is distinctly visible, one below the other.
