Roman Shade Blinds

If you’re on a tight budget but still looking to revamp your home space and give it a touch of elegance, then roman shade blinds will do the trick. They blend well with virtually any type of décor and never go out of fashion.

There are different types of Roman blinds, namely common flat, balloon shades, lined shades, hobbled shades, relaxed shades, and butterfly style. Whatever the type is, they all practically deliver the same way. Tiny plastic rings are fastened at the back of a fabric, and cords go through those rings. When the cords are drawn up, the blind moves up, then it falls in pleats or folds and they add glamour to your home.

Roman shades are priced differently, depending on the type so you can have them even when you are strapped for cash. You can save a significant amount of money if you install the blinds all yourself. It may seem like such an intricate task to do but it is very doable.

You only need to have the equipment needed. It is just a board with hooks in it that the cords thread through after they run through those small plastic rings. This is needed just so the cords are secure in order for the window shade to remain up when raised.

Choosing the fabric that you will be using is an essential step. There is an array of choices, but see to it that the colors and patterns would blend well with the rest of the house décor. Additionally, it should meet your requirements with regard to blocking light, temperature regulation, and privacy. The weight of the fabric differs from one type of Roman shade to another since some heavy fabrics don’t work for some styles.

One remarkable thing about roman shade blinds is that can be used in virtually any room in the house. The versatility of this window treatment is basically the main reason why it never goes out of style and why it has always been popular with the masses.

What is the best window shade for a window that’s over my bathtub?

Question by Naz: What is the best window shade for a window that’s over my bathtub?
I have a window that’s over my bathtub and would like some suggestions for window treatment. I have used vinyl shades and they get rusty with all the moisture.

Best answer:

Answer by Diane A
I would consider a good quality window privacy film (this is one: www.wallpaperforwindows.com/pc/home.asp, but if you google privacy film for windows a lot come up). You can get ones that look like the glass is opaque or sandblasted. Another option is to put a decorative panel over the glass inside and mount with quarter round (such as “3 form” varia -www.3-form.com), another is to place a stained glass window inside the window, again mounting with quarter round. Anything else will have trouble with moisture.

Is it possible to cover a shade with wallpaper?

Question by Miss: Is it possible to cover a shade with wallpaper?
Is it possible to cover a shade with wallpaper? Will the shade be too slick for adhesive to adhere to? I found some wall paper that would look great with my window treatments. Any ideas of how to use it. My only thought was to cover a shade with it.

Best answer:

Answer by extex_cop
It will be hard to get it to stick unless you use the spray on adhesive…..then you have the problem of getting the paper to lay on it straight. You have to spray both the shade and the paper.
