Refreshing Your Home Décor with Roman Shades

While upgrading your window treatments might sound like a tough task, it’s one of the smaller interior design projects that can have some of the biggest impacts on the look and feel of your space. Simple swaps, whether it’s changing up the color or style of window treatments, have the potential to completely shift the overall aesthetic of space, quickly taking a room from chic to modern and sleek with one change. At Exciting Windows, we love Roman shades for accomplishing this feat. Roman shades offer some of the most versatility out of all the window treatment styles out there in addition to maintaining their status as an on-trend choice even in 2021. Let’s dive into what makes Roman shades a star choice among window coverings if you’re on the market for a total overhaul on a budget.

Designer Fabrics

Roman shades come in several shapes, including the classic Roman known for crisp pleats and structure, and Waterfall Roman is loved for its minimalistic yet elegant appeal. When it comes to changing up a space, Roman shades offer a range of possibilities. Go for the monochrome and bold by choosing a color that matches your interior paint or does the opposite and pick a contrasting color or even pattern that is sure to stand out and make a lasting impression. For style, we love our Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Roman Shades featuring on-trend fabrics from New York designer, Rebecca Atwood. This collection features premium fabrics with Atwood’s signature watercolor prints in a modern color palette. Enhance your windows with organic fabrics inspired by destinations like Cape Cod while adding a luxurious element to your interior décor.

Quality Inside and Out

Roman shades also have the power to improve the quality of the time you spend indoors with boosted energy efficiency. Shades like the Solera® collection from Hunter Douglas feature a combined cellular shade and Roman shade style that works to improve your home’s insulation while outfitting your windows in contemporary style. Enjoy cooler summers and warmer winters with shades that filter light beautifully for a soft, diffuse glow. Choose from a variety of colors and fabrics including bold colors, classic neutrals, subtle prints, and textures that are encompassed in a classic Roman shade that brings structure to your windows.

Change how you approach interior lighting with the added convenience of smart controls on your Roman shades. PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas is an award-winning system that turns your Roman shades into smart technology.
