The Infinite Design Possibilities of Roman Shades

roman shadesWindow treatments are, of course, designed to be functional: we place them over our windows to provide our homes with privacy and light control, but is that really all they’re good for? Hunter Douglas and Nest Expressions don’t think so. We believe that window treatments should be as much of a design statement as the rest of your home’s décor. It is for this reason that we want to showcase Hunter Douglas’s roman shades and how they can provide your home with one of a kind beauty.

What are roman shades?

Like other types of shades, roman shades are made from fabric, but there are a few things that separate them from the other fabric shades offered by Hunter Douglas. First, the fabric of roman shades is typically thicker and more opaque than other types of shades, providing you with more total light control. Second, this fabric is elegantly pleated, making them both functional and truly dazzling to look at.

A Roman Shade for Every Taste

Hunter Douglas offers three different varieties of roman shades, each of which have their own fantastic benefits.

The Vignette® collection updates the traditional roman shade with a few amazing new features. Vignette® shades have no exposed cords, which keeps your shades looking sleek and uncluttered, and also protects any children or pets who may come into contact with your window treatments. For added versatility, the Vignette® collection is available in both vertical and horizontal orientation, so any window in your home can be outfitted perfectly.

The Solera® collection is perfect for anyone who wants to maximize the functionality of their shades. These shades combine the beautiful design of roman shades with the unparalleled energy efficiency of cellular shades. The cellular construction of Solera® shades serves to insulate your windows, keeping your home’s temperature more consistent and allowing you to dial back your heating and air, saving you money in the process. And, to make Solera® shades even better, they are available in both opaque and translucent options, so you can always let in the exact amount of light that you want.

The Design Studio™ collection is for the homeowner who knows exactly what they want from their décor, but have had trouble finding it. The Design Studio™ collection takes the elegance and simplicity of traditional roman shades, but dials up the customizability. Available in four different styles with a wide array of fabrics to choose from, as well as matching tapes, trims, and valances to top them off, these shades do truly have an infinite variety of design possibilities.
