Made-to-measure Roman blinds

Roman blinds are design-led, which makes them great for classic interior styling and to complement other window coverings eg. curtains and shutters. When made with a thermal lining and coupled with curtains they provide one of the best solutions for maintaining room temperatures in the colder months. There are a wealth of soft fabrics available, no matter your personal taste or decor, and Romans can add a warmth and softness to a room that other blind types can't. 

Like other window coverings, they do have their limitations:

  • When fitted inside the recess the fabric creates a 'stack' at the top of the window when the blind is raised.  On a small window, this stack can minimise your light and view

  • depending on how they are made they can be less safe for children and pets than some other blind types (we never supply Romans on a batten unless recovering existing blinds, or they are 'mock' blinds that are non-operational)

  • you'll have less control over shading than alternative solutions - they're either up or down

  • they are one of the more expensive blind types due to the labour involved in manufacturing them and, of course, the amount of soft fabric, lining and components used.
