Silk Roman Shades
A lot of consumers are not even aware of what a Roman shade is, but when they hear it is made of silk they jump at the purchase. Roman shades, however, are not for everyone and cannot always suit every window type either. Roman shades are drawn up and down from a series of cords located at the bottom of your windowsill. These shades draw themselves up in a series of horizontal panels, but when they are completely down they are smooth and flat and should be flush up against your window. If you are looking for shades that can be adjusted to allow light in, but still be drawn down, Roman shades cannot do that. They will have to be up, down, or in the middle to provide light.
You can find silk Roman shades in just about any color and some even have patterns. Most Roman shades even offer a variety of designer bottoms that go from lace, to flat lines, to scalloped edges. It is important to always measure your window prior to ordering your silk Roman shades. As with any window covering, exact measurements are the key to a successfully covered window. Another thing to always remember is to check the product description. A lot of manufacturers will use the word “silk” for a description, but in the fine print state the product is actually “faux silk”. So if you purchase it thinking it is real silk, you will be sorely mistaken. You have the option with your silk Roman shades to have them corded or not corded. A corded shade means that the cord that directs them up or down is strung through the shade itself. These are typically cheaper in price, but there is a drawback to them – they leave tiny holes that actually allow sunlight in. If you choose a cordless model, the cords will be glued or sewn directly into the shades themselves.
