Roman shades

Roman shades, also known as fabric shades, combine the beauty of fabric window treatments with the easy operation of a shade. Elegant and versatile, roman shades come in a wide variety of styles and features from insulated, to room darkening and blackout, to light filtering and sheer.

Roman shades have the style and options that can work well with almost any decor.

Roman Shade Fold Types

Roman Shades come in four different fold styles: relaxed, flat, plain, and hobbled. Flat and relaxed fold roman shades offer a more classic or modern look, while hobbled or plain fold styles lend themselves toward more formal, elegant settings and decors.

Relaxed Fold

A relaxed fold, also called a European or casual fold, has a smooth, drapery-like appearance with a gentle curve of fabric stacked on the bottom rail.

Flat Fold

A flat folded roman shade, also called a seamless fold, lies flat like a continuous piece of fabric, making it an ideal choice for bold patterns or prints.

Plain Fold

Plain folds offer a clean structure with seamed fold lines. Each pleat of fabric is backed with sturdy bars to strengthen the shade.

Hobbled Fold

Also known as a waterfall or teardrop, a hobbled fold has larger, looped pleats of fabric that run the entire height of the shade. It is similar to a plain fold, but with larger, more outstanding pleats.


Roman shades or fabric shades offer plenty of choices. Many of the materials used are a polyester blend for durability and stain resistance. However, there are also linen, cotton, faux suede, patterned fabrics, weaves and textured fabrics available.


Adding to roman shade versatility is the range of available lift options including, top down bottom up, cordless, and motorized. Consider cordless roman shades if you have small children in your home, as dangling cords can be dangerous. Plus, cordless shades offer a cleaner, uncluttered look. Top down bottom up allows you to lower the shade from the top, raise it from the bottom, or both - this is a nice privacy and light control feature. Motorized roman shades provide the ultimate in cordless convenience and is especially useful for high or hard to reach windows.

Light Control

Opacity refers to the light filtering properties of a material. Roman shades come in every opacity imaginable – from semi-sheer (light filtering) to semi-opaque (medium room darkening) to opaque (room darkening or blackout). There's no shortage of options. Blackout roman shades, which use opaque fabrics, are a perfect choice for bedrooms, nurseries, and home theaters.


Roman shades are available in a wide selection of colors. You can also choose roman shades with patterns, stripes, and textures.

Beautiful and Efficient

Adding shades in your condo or house will make your home not only more energy efficient, but add elegance, climate control, durability and convenience.
