Custom Flat Roman Soft Shades Made for Your New Jersey Home

Features - Options - Sample Prices - Examples - Projects

Flat Roman soft shades feature a clean, simple look.  A flat shade hangs flat when lowered and falls into pleats when raised.   It has a very tailored look and is a good choice to show off a fabric pattern.  Suitable for traditional, casual and minimalist themes, flat Romans allow the fabric to set the mood.

They can be mounted inside or outside the window casings.  They are most commonly mounted inside the casings, allowing the millwork to show at all times and to create the greatest privacy.

Medium weight fabrics work well.  Lighter fabrics and sheers are also used, but require a bit more hand dressing to stack nicely.

Flat Roman shades in a Haddonfield, NJ sun porch.  Sheer face fabric and a sheer lining keep the bright illumination while cutting glare.

Attached front valances add some weight to the top and help hide the operating hardware with such sheer fabric.  Narrow headrails and an inside mount keep the shades tight to the window frames, giving privacy with the shades fully lowered.

The lightweight fabric requires some hand dressing when raising or lowering - a trade-off for keeping a bright room.
