When you think of Roman shades, what comes to mind? Is it home-made, bulky, drapery-mimicking window coverings that obscure half the view of your window and have no place in your modern home? Roman shades don’t have to be that. In fact, a Roman Shade can be as versatile a window covering as a cellular without the crisp pleats and modern style of a cellular shade. Because of the wide variety of patterns and fabrics available, these gorgeous creations can lend themselves well to any home, and have an added bonus: Timelessness.
Romans are available in many fold styles, but most internet retailers limit themselves to a tailored flat panel or a hobbled style for the greatest variety of lift options. A hobbled shade can add rich texture to a formal room, while the clean uncluttered lines of flat panel shades offer a deceptive simplicity. A flat panel Roman is the perfect touch to a simplistic modern style of design, and if down the road you decide to get more traditional with your décor, the soft beauty of the fabric will add dimension to any style you choose. Simply add drapery panels and voila: get your fancy on!
In addition, Roman shades can free you from the traditional pull-cord blahs. Want lots of light and lots of privacy? Go top-down bottom-up, with or without pull cords. Have high, inaccessible windows, or large picture windows and don’t want to build your biceps raising and lowering your shades every day? Try motorized shades (available with a wall switch if you tend to lose remotes). Have child safety in mind? Roman shades are available with cordless lift for a beauty all ages can enjoy.
This year, don’t settle for the hard line. You don’t have to worry about pleat sizes and whether or not something looks busy. Wrap your home in the timeless beauty that is a Roman shade.
Large windows can be a challenging thing to tackle. While they offer stunning views, they have a high cost in privacy. Many traditional window coverings do not cover large windows without seperating the blinds into multiple panels. Vertical blinds cover most windows, but have an undesirable sway to the vanes and lack a designer feel.
For a more elegant, stylish look in any room, consider vertical sheers. Available from Levolor, Comfortex, and Bali, these beautiful window treatments combine the elegance and soft light diffusion of draperies with the light control. Our featured brand in this category is Levolor’s Perceptions. Levolor has carefully selected fabrics that coordinate with or perfectly match many other window treatments by Levolor. In addition, the colors available perfectly match many colors Levolors Roman, Roller, Vertical, and Cellular collections. Levolor’s innovative vertical products are available in cordless wand control for a clean, uncluttered look. If the traditional cord and chain controls are more your style, check out Levolor’s Backstacker feature. Backstacker is exclusive to Levolor and causes the vanes to gather from the back of the stack. This allows a clean, unobstructed view when the sheers are partially opened, rather than a gathering of material in the center of the window. With Levolor, you can truly change your perception of light.

Looking for a way to add classic warmth and style to any room in your house?

With so many beautiful stains and paints to choose from and a wide variety of available options, wood blinds offer a timeless elegance to any home.
1. Energy Efficiency
While cellulars get all the credit for this key point, wood blinds are remarkably green in this regard. Wood blinds have an average R Value (the amount the reduce heat loss) of 3.5-4, which is comparable to many single cell and sheer cellulars. More notably, wood blinds have a U Value (the amount of heat they prevent from entering your home) of .26- meaning they reduce heat gain by up to 74% when closed.
2. High Quality at a Great Price
Ask anyone in the industry who makes the best wood blinds and the answer may surprise you- it’s usually Levolor or Bali that earn the recommendation of pros, not high-profile “designer” brands. Both brands have a wide array of colors to meet anyone’s style, and both individually hand craft their slats. In addition, Bali’s wood blinds are made using sustainable forestry techniques, including replanting all wood that is harvested and only using North American Hardwood. Don’t want to take the word of the pros? Over 90% of our customers would recommend Bali’s wood blinds to a friend, and 100% say the same of Levolor’s wood blinds. Starting at less than $90 for 30” x 60” blind, you’ll have room to spare in your budget for our third reason to choose wood.
3. Unique Options to Customize Your Space
Features in wood blinds aren’t just about ladder tapes anymore (although both Bali and Levolor offer a wide variety of beautiful options in this regard). Whether you’re out to eliminate
tangled cords, want to increase privacy, or are looking for stylish valance options, wood blinds have you covered. Available free of route holes and cords, wood blinds are a safe, easy to clean, and privacy-enhancing choice for your home. Want a beautiful way to top it off?
