There is just something so decor friendly about choosing new roman shades. Decor friendly roman shades are a wonderful addition to almost any room. That said, I would avoid using them for windows next to wet areas like kitchen sinks and bathrooms. Because roman shades are fabric and harder to clean, keeping them from bathrooms is a good idea. Instead, look to window treatments for bathrooms.
So where is a good place to install roman shades then? Roman shades will go beautifully in rooms with traditional furniture or they can be paired with almost any style based on the type of loop and fabric you choose. Now when selecting roman shades, choose a pattern fabric in a classic loop roman shade for more formal spaces and for windows you want to draw attention to. Looped roman shades are great in traditional spaces because they have an elegant look and a rich feel. If you custom order or make roman shades yourself, you can add embellishments, such as beading, piping or choose a different fabric for your valance.
Get the flat loop for areas that are a little more modern and for windows that you don’t want to draw everyone’s eye to. The flat loop roman has simple lines especially when paired with a solid fabric. Choose a neutral color if you change the paint or furniture in your space often. If your decor choice is here to stay, then pick something bold, especially if you want attention to your new great window treatments.
