While it may seem a bit obvious (coming from us), it’s worth repeating that window treatments have the power to transform a space. If you’re an apartment dweller who has yet to swap out your vertical plastic blinds with something a bit more stylish, then you know what we are talking about.
We spend a lot of time talking how-to drapes this and how-to drapes that, but the thing is that Roman Shades are kinda the best because they are modern and sophisticated and super functional. They keep the room feeling light. Additionally, they provide light control, privacy and can help with temperature control if lined.

Relaxed Romans never fail to make a statement and are the epitome of casual chic and create a delicate and soft aura in your home. The easy sophistication brought to a space with Relaxed Romans makes them ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and other kick back and relax areas of the home.
Made with one continuous piece of fabric, these shades hang flat in front of the window.

Of the choices available, your roman shade will complement the decor, whether you have a rustic farmhouse or a modern suburban home. Romans add incredible style and dimension to any windows.
