Roman blinds remain one of the most luxurious options for window coverings. The history of the design of roman blinds extends back to Egyptian times where papyrus shades were created to block the summer heat without compromising beauty. The Romans promptly borrowed the technology and it became a popular fixture of the aristocratic home providing the essential functionalities of privacy and the moderation of sunlight.
Today the design of the roman blind is similar to its historical origin. With a simple pull of the cord the voluminous fabric is drawn upward in a dramatic way to reveal the window pane. The billowing fabric when fully raised creates a beautiful framing of the window and adds a classic opulence to the space. The roman blind has a great theatrical appeal whether fully or partially drawn.
You do not need to be in Rome to do as the Roman’s do however. You can order your roman blinds right from the comfort of your own home with Made to Measure Blinds UK.
The maintenance of a roman blind is another feature that makes it a popular choice for window coverings. Simply extend the fabric to its full length and your blind can be gently cleaned with a moist cloth or hover brush attachment to remove the dust. Quality roman blinds offer years of performance and satisfaction and are the perfect application for recreational rooms or comfortable gathering spaces. The plush effect of a roman blind creates a very cozy relaxing ambience and one that makes a polished statement of your good taste.
Traditionally roman blinds have been provided in neutral shades and fabric patterns. The classic choice of a neutral interior is often best for public spaces or preparing a home for sale.
