Roman shades are one of the oldest window coverings on the market, getting their name from being developed during Roman times. Traditional Roman shades are made out of fabric and use a pull cord to raise and lower the shade. Because of the cords, Roman shades are not necessarily child and pet safe, and have some stylistic challenges. Our clients throughout the Marin County and San Francisco areas also tell us they don’t like the look of the cords running vertically on the back of the shade or the bulky stack of fabric at the top when they’re raised. Modern Roman Shades from Hunter Douglas answer all those concerns. Take a look:
Hunter Douglas offers superior blinds, shades, sheers and shutters, sometimes referred to as hard treatments. Alone, they are beautiful, energy efficient and functional. The addition of draperies or soft treatments adds warmth and depth to any room. Custom made draperies and top treatments allow you to add a personal touch to your windows, especially when paired with blinds and shades. At Blinds & Designs serving San Francisco and Marin County, we offer custom drapery services as well as the complete Hunter Douglas line of blinds, shades and shutters.
