Roman shades have been a beloved window dressing for generations. Their popularity stems from their functionality and the wide range of fabrics and materials available, from classic bamboo to custom designer fabrics. Recently, they have gained renewed attention as an option for climate control, effectively keeping out light and retaining warmth when designed for thermal use. Manufacturers have even introduced motorized and cordless versions for easy use and safety in homes with children and pets.

Roman shades are constructed from a flat section of material that folds up and down like an accordion. The shade is raised evenly using a cord that lengthens as the shade is pulled up. There are two main categories of Roman shades, each offering numerous designer variations:


  • Classic, or flat: These shades appear smooth and solid when fully extended, with no visible pleats.
  • Hobbled, or looped: These shades retain soft overlapping folds, creating a cascade of fabric folds that resemble drapery.
  • Embellished: These shades feature curved bottoms known as European style and offer various options, including vertical gathering in the middle, a fanned bottom, or a trimmed bottom with beads, fringe, or tassels.

Roman shades can be mounted in two different styles:

Mounting Styles

  • Outside mount: The shade is slightly wider than the window and attached to the wall on the outside.
  • Inside mount: The shade is precisely measured to fit inside the window and attached to the inner window casing at the top.

There is a Roman shade design to complement any style, with endless possibilities for fabrics, colors, designs, and applications. Below, we showcase ten beautifully designed bedrooms that feature unique variations of classic Roman shades:
