The design of roman shades allows them to be made to fit all sizes of windows including those that may be hard to fit like narrow windows or large picture windows. They can offer protection from bright UV rays as well as increase energy efficiency by absorbing cold in the winter and heat in the summer. There are two types of roman shades, Soft and Vignette Modern Roman. Choosing the right roman shade can enhance and perfect any room in your home.
