5 Powerful Upgrades for Modern Roman Shades in 2023

1. Motorization

PowerView® Automation is a powerful control system for motorized Roman shades that offer homeowners modern convenience and precise control. Choose from the ease of using remote controls to operate shades at the touch of a button, benefit from the easy access of the online PowerView app that allows for global access, or utilize automated scheduling for hands-off efficiency. PowerView is available for Vignette, Solera, Design Studio, Alustra™ Woven Textures, and Provenance Woven Wood Roman shades.

2. Designer Fabrics

Elevating the look of modern Roman shades with chic contemporary style are new designer fabrics by the latest textile artists, including Seema Krish, Rebecca Atwood, and Marcie Bronkar. In the Design Studio™ collection, homeowners will find exclusive lines of designer fabrics, prints, and embroideries that can be used in the customization of modern Roman shades and matching custom accessories.

3. Underlying Insulation

Drawing from the insulating innovation of cellular honeycomb shades, Solera Roman Shades is an advanced hybrid treatment from Hunter Douglas with the refined aesthetics of Roman shades and the energy efficiency of cellular shades. Solera Roman shades look and operate like traditional Roman shades, but under the sculpted fabrics are built-in cells that trap air to insulate rooms against winter's cold or summer's heat.

4. Woven Fabrics

Designer fabrics aren't the only textile upgrade for Roman shades available through the Hunter Douglas collection. Woven wood textiles put a modern, soft spin on traditional wood treatments, giving the organic element new life as a fabric element. Provenance® Woven Wood Shades use soft textiles made from woods, grasses, reeds, and bamboo to fabricate classic Roman or waterfall Roman shades.

5. Enhanced Child Safety

When there are children in the home, some of the most important upgrades for modern Roman shades are those that improve safety. Cordless treatments are ideal for young children because hanging lines can pose a strangulation hazard. While traditional types of Roman shades have hanging lines, modern motorized Roman shades are more child-safe with a controlled operating system like PowerView® Automation.
