Choosing a Roman Shades Fold Style for Your Home

Posted in: Shades

Houston Roman ShadesYou’ve decided to purchase Roman shades, fabric shades that fold as they are lifted, but you don’t know which fold style to pick for your Sugarland home. Depending on your window blinds and shades company‘s Roman shade selection, you will be able to choose from hobbled fold, flat fold, and European fold shades.

Types of Roman Shades Folds

  • Hobbled or Soft Fold: With a hobbled or soft fold Roman shade, the overlapping folds show when the shades are raised and lowered. Window blinds and shades companies suggest these Roman shades for homeowners who desire soft and billowy window treatments. The bulkiness of hobbled fold Roman shades tends to obstruct sunlight and heat. They provide a delicate, sophisticated appearance to the interiors of homes.
  • Flat Fold: Flat fold Roman shades are composed of one long piece of fabric without seams, and they lay flat in front of windows. The smooth surface of flat fold Roman shades allows them to be designed in various colors and patterns. The folding of the shades appears very structured and sleek. They are not bulky, so they function well on shallow windows.
  • European Fold: Roman shades with a European fold curve upward when the shades are raised. The curved edges and asymmetrical folds create a luxurious, regal appearance. Window blinds and shades professionals suggest these shades to homeowners who are looking for a more decorative style because they should not be lifted and lowered frequently.

After reviewing the various fold designs, you will surely find a style of Roman shade for you. You can customize the fold style, color, pattern, and fabric of these shades to suit your preferences and the interior of your Sugarland home.
