Roman Blinds Information
Roman blinds are one of the most stylish ways to dress up a window with clean, sophisticated lines. They can be used as a standalone window treatment fitted outside the window or inside the window recess and they can also be combined with curtains giving your window a layered look.
Our roman blinds are made from the same high quality fabrics as those used in our made to measure curtain range giving a much better, softer finish to the look of the blind. Hand finished in the UK our Roman Blinds are made to last and will define the feel of any room within your home.
Look & Feel
Roman Blind hangs flat at the window in the lowered position. It is raised by means of draw strings controlled by cord-pull or chain sidewinder attached to thin bars inserted into the blind and this forms straight stepped folds upon rising. The fold depths are in proportion to the overall drop required and generally the minimum stack drop is approximately 12”
Linings & Finishings
You can choose to have your roman blind made with a choice of standard, thermal or blackout linings. Where available a contrast border can be added to the bottom of your blind.
Sizes & Measuring
Any size is available up to a maximum width of 250cm and maximum drop of 240cm. If a blind requires more than one width of fabric the blind will be made with a full width central panel and a smaller pattern matched panel at each side. This will usually be required for blinds wider than 132cm, depending on the original fabric width
When ordering roman blinds we ask for either a blind size or a recess size (for when a blind is fitting within the window recess). If ordering blind size, no allowance will be made and the dimensions supplied will include headrail and brackets. If ordering recess size we will make the necessary allowances. When ordering a roman blind to fit outside a recess we recommend that the blind extends at least 10cm beyond each side of the window frame.
- All Window Blind cords should be secured out of reach of small children.
- Young children have been strangled by loops in pull-cords, chains and tapes that operate the product.
- To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of the reach of young children. Cords may become wrapped around a child’s neck.
- Move beds, cots and furniture away from the window so that they are not covering the cords.
- Do not tie cords together. Make sure cords do not twist and create a loop.
- We have a number of child safety devices available to help keep control cords and chains out of reach of children and all blinds will have safety devices sent with their order.
