Outfitting Your Home in Beautiful Roman Shades

Do you consider yourself a fan of the classics? Of course, seventies tunes and a great pair of heels never go out of style, but we’re talking about window treatments! Roman shades have been a longtime favorite of many homeowners for decades. They are perfect for adding a pop of color or pattern and giving your windows a sense of structure.

Roman shades, sometimes called Roman blinds, filter incoming sunlight for protection and a comfortable ambiance. But just because they’ve been around for a while doesn’t mean they’re close to going out of style any time soon. Roman shades are still trendy in 2022, and your friends at Sierra Verde Home Design Center are here to share the benefits of incorporating Roman shades into your home.

Whether you’re switching from another style of window fashions, like blinds, or are just looking for a reason to invest in upgrading your beloved shades, we have just the thing for you!

What to Consider When Buying Roman Shades

Roman shades come in various colors, patterns, textures, and opacities. Each collection of shades offers a unique appearance. Some Roman shades boast traditional, no-frills, uniform pleats, while others combine the energy-efficient structure of honeycomb shades for a powerful insulator.

Depending on where in your home you are hanging your shades, you will want to consider the opacity of the shade itself. For smaller rooms that need brightening up, we love recommending sheer shades for allowing plenty of soft, diffuse light to enter without overpowering the space. Colors like Moonstone, Escape, and Mink from the luxurious Alustra® Collection are perfect for achieving this refreshing feel.

For bedrooms, we enjoy the idea of darker colors. Not only do these filter out more sunlight - especially when paired with Duolite® light filtering technology - but these colors also create a more dramatic feel that adds notes of elegance and luxury to a plush bedroom.
