Roman shades (also called roman blinds) are classic soft window coverings made with fabric and known by their distinctive lifting style. As the shade is raised, strings on the back of the shade allow it to fold up in roman style pleats. Our custom roman window fashions are available in two different fold styles to suit your preference.
04/24/2012 - Thank you so much! I am very pleased with our Roman blinds
and your customer service is outstanding!!!!! 1 of our blinds did not fit, they took the measurements over the phone and ordered me a new one, all I had to pay was shipping!! I cannot explain what a relief it is to not have to lug it to the post office, with a toddler in tow!!

Roman window coverings combine the versatility of shades and blinds with the soft look and feel of drapes. The variety of colors, textures, and fold styles can both complement your existing decor and provide an elegant focal point for your room.
Blindster's variety of custom made to measure roman window blinds gives you control over your decorating options and allows you to select the fabric color and texture perfect for your room.
Lift type refers to how you will raise and lower your shades. Blindster offers three optional lift types. Refer to the product options for each shade for more details and cost.
Top Down Bottom Up: Two sets of lift cords allow top down bottom up shades to be raised from the bottom up or lowered from the top down. Read more about Top Down Bottom Up shades..
Cordless: With no lift cords; cordless roman window treatments are raised and lowered by lifting up and down on the bottom rail. The maximum width for the cordless option is 84".
Continuous Cord Loop: A looped cord and clutch mechanism replaces the the standard lift shade cord. Continuous loop cords are the same length when the shade is open or closed. This option is recommended on shades more than 84" wide.
Blindster's Super Value Roman Window Shades, the lowest priced custom roman shade on the market, is available in the popular plain pleated fold style. Our other roman-style window treatments, Premium Group A and Premium Group B are available in both the fold styles described below.
Plain (Pleated) Fold: The plain fold style offers a structured, contemporary look. Stay pockets on the back of the shade create pleats and provide for an even efficient stack.
Soft (Hobbled) Fold: The soft fold style provides tailored, curving folds when lowered. The fabric is hobbled onto the lining at 6" intervals.
When deciding on a roman window shade for a room consider the opaqueness or light level. If maximum light blockage is desired, our optional blackout liner is your best choice. Blackout roman window coverings are ideal for bedrooms, media rooms, or any room where darkness is desired.
Deluxe 95% Blackout Liner: With a luxurious triple cloth woven in blackout lining, our blackout liner is made of 100% polyester fabric to block out 95% of sunlight and provide a neutral color to the outside. Note this liner is not available with the cordless lift option.
Premium 100% Blackout Liner:With a heavy weight lining made with 100% cotton fabric and three pass acrylic foam with rayon flock backing blocks, this liner blocks out 100% of sunlight and provides a neutral color to the outside. Recommended for blackout on less opaque and lighter colored fabrics.
