Roman Blind: What It Is, Where To Use, Tips And Photos

Classical and sophisticated, Roman blinds are the perfect choice for anyone looking to unite the practicality of traditional blinds with the beauty of fabric curtains. Available in different colors and materials, the Roman blind has a great chance to invade your home decor.

But first, check out below all you need to know about the Roman blind:

What is the Roman blind?

The Roman blind is formed by wide and horizontal "buds" that fold and unfold upwards or downwards as the blind is opened or closed. The space between the folds of the Roman blind is what makes this model so different, conveying lightness and elegance to the surroundings.

Roman blinds can be operated manually or automatically, in this case done by remote control. Another feature is that you can opt for the blackout Roman blind model, where the passage of light is completely blocked, or by the translucent Roman blind or solar screen, where the light goes through the shutter in a subtle and natural way.

The most commonly used materials for making Roman blinds are fabric, usually polyester, or natural fibers such as bamboo.

Colors

The most used colors for the Roman blind are light, neutral or pastel colors, mainly because these shades easily adjust to the most different decoration proposals and bring softness to the environment.

The gray Roman shade is a good option for those who wish to escape from the traditional light colors and yet impress an extra touch of modernity and comfort to the environment.

But if you wish you can opt for a Roman shade of strong and vibrant color Another option are the patterned models, which are also very beautiful.

Where to use

Roman blinds can be used in any environment of the house. In the living room and in the bedrooms, a good tip is to opt for blackout fabrics that limit the entrance of the light and guarantee an extra rest or that session of cinema without being disturbed by the sun.

In the kitchen and bathroom the orientation is to avoid the Roman fabric blinds. Prefer those of natural fibers because they are easier to clean and because they do not suck fat. Leave the fabrics to the rooms, rooms and offices.

Roman blind with curtain and curtain

An interesting feature of Roman blinds is that they can be used in conjunction with the traditional bandots, a type finish on the top of the curtain and that serves to hide the rail. Bandots can be made of wood, plaster, aluminum or MDF.

The curtains can also integrate the design of the Roman blinds. They further ensure the control of light and reinforce the classic, romantic and delicate style of the environments.

Ideal shade size

A lot of people wonder what the ideal shade size is. Does it need to go down to the floor or only to the height of the window? In general, it is recommended that the blind is between 10 and 20 centimeters more than the window, on the sides, as well as the top and bottom.

But if you're going to create a stylish ambiance, you'd rather use the floor-length blind, especially in dining rooms, living rooms, and double rooms. In juvenile children's rooms, where, as a rule, the decoration is more bare, the blind can be limited to the size of the window.

To have a custom blind, it is best to order it in specialized stores, but if you prefer you can buy a Roman blind ready in physical stores and online. In these cases, they tend to be cheaper, however, the color choices and sizes available are less.

Cleaning and maintenance

Cleaning and maintenance of the Roman shade should be done weekly with the use of a dust duster in order to avoid the accumulation of dirt. Once a month it is advisable to use a vacuum cleaner and periodically, every six months or a year, wash the Roman blind with some specialized company.
