4 Reasons Roman Shades are a Great Window Treatment Choice

One of the best ways to give your interior a fresh new look is through window treatments. In fact, window coverings can be one of the most cost-effective ways to instantly change the feel of a room without needing extensive renovations or redecorating.

Roman fabric shades provide both an attractive and practical addition to any home’s interior. Not only do they give excellent privacy, but they also effectively block out intense sunlight and muffle loud noises from the outside. When the shade string is pulled, the fabric will fold in an even and patterned way, forming a gorgeous and gentle cascading window treatment that is more affordable than other more elaborate options.

Norman Roman Shades for a Durham Home

Our client in Durham fell in love with the look of Roman shades. She liked the elegant look and the clean features they give to a space. We fitted the windows throughout the home with a beautiful linen Roman shade from Norman USA. We chose an elegant gray fabric that complimented her decor and transformed the look of her home. 

The Norman Roman Shades featured a cordless operation. These shades operate almost like a motorized product, except without the motor. One lift and the entire shade opens with ease. Watch the video below to learn more about this feature.
