A Roman Blind is a fabric window treatment that features two or more panels, which are attached to the wall at the top and bottom. The middle panel can be opened by pulling it up on its rollers. It’s called a “Roman” blind because of how this type of shade was first used in ancient Rome.

Roman Blind: Frequently asked questions

What types of Roman Blind are there and what determines a good product?

Roman Blinds are available in a variety of fabrics, colours and styles. The most popular fabric types include cotton, linen or silk. You can choose from plain blinds to ones with patterns on them such as stripes or checks. If you want something more unusual then there is also the option of blackout roman blinds which block out all light when closed so they’re perfect for bedrooms where you need some extra darkness at night time but don’t want to use curtains that will restrict your view outside during the day. There are even thermal roman blinds which have an insulating layer between two layers of fabric meaning they keep heat inside better than other types of window covering do.

The quality of the fabric and how it is made. We use high-quality fabrics, which are then hand sewn by our skilled team in India. Our Roman Blinds also have a metal chain mechanism for easy operation – no need to pull cords.

Who should use a Roman Blind?

Roman Blinds are ideal for bedrooms, living rooms and dining areas. They can be used in conjunction with curtains or as a stand-alone product to create privacy and block out light.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Roman Blind?

The most important thing to consider is the size of your window. Roman Blinds come in a variety of sizes, so you should be able to find one that fits perfectly into any sized window. You can also choose from different fabrics and styles depending on what look you are going for in your home or office space.

The main thing to look out for is the quality of the fabric. Make sure it’s made from a good grade material, and that there are no loose threads or holes in it. Also check that all of your chosen options have been included (for example if you want blackout lining make sure this has been added). If you don’t see what you were expecting then ask about it before placing an order as sometimes items can be overlooked when ordering online.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Roman Blind?


Roman Blinds are the most popular type of blind available. They offer a wide range of styles, colours and fabrics to suit any room in your home. The fabric is usually held back by two or three cords which can be adjusted to control how much light comes through the window as well as being able to adjust them so that they don’t block out all natural daylight completely if you want some sunlight coming into your living space.


The main disadvantage of a Roman Blind is that they are not as easy to operate and open or close. They also do not have the same level of light control, which can be an issue if you want your blinds to block out all sunlight in order for you to sleep better at night.
