The clean soft lines and pleats of Roman shades give an indulgent appearance without the heavy or bulky look which is sometimes created by the more traditional option of curtains. Roman blinds work by gathering panels of material vertical and horizontally with fabric cording. This means that when the blinds are pulled tight they will open allowing light into the room, but when dropped they provide excellent privacy and light exclusion.

Why Roman Blinds?
Roman blinds are one of the most customizable blinds that you will ever come across. Blinds Direct offers you a wide range of colours and fabrics to choose from. This choice in fabric also alters the price, meaning that you can easily work within a set budget. The thickness and quality of the materials that you select for your roman blinds will play a large role in how well they manage light and heat. Thicker materials will expel heat and light in the summer, and retain it well in winter.
