Should Roman shades be inside or outside mount?
Roman shades can be installed both inside and outside the window frame depending upon your need and the depth of your windows. Structurally we believe that soft fold and dog-ear Roman shade would make a better fit as outside mount than the inside mount.
Can Roman shades be top mounted?
You can install a new set of Roman shades over the course of 3 or 4 hours. The shades can be installed in 1 of 2 ways: either using an interior mount, where the shades are hung inside of the window frame, or using an exterior mount, where shades are attached to the wall above the window.
Why are Roman shades so expensive?
Because they’re made to fit a window’s exact dimensions, Roman shades are pretty expensive to invest in for a rental apartment. Still, that doesn’t stop us from loving them—their neat folds are just so modern and clean compared to swoopy curtains. Ultimately, the heart wants what the heart wants, no matter your budget.
What is a waterfall Roman shade?
Our roman shades are a light filtering cordless window treatments with a durable design. The cascade function allows you to open the shades to allow more natural light as desired.
Can you hang Roman blinds on a curtain rod?
Yes you can hang roman blinds on a rod. Hang them straight on the curtain rod. Just put a rod pocket in the top and don’t gather them on the rod –have them lay flat. To make a rod pocket for them just fold over the top and sew a seam on the bottom of the pocket.
How do you hang Roman blinds without brackets?
Place the head rail over the top window trim and center it over the window. Place a bubble level on top of the head rail and position the blind so it remains level on the top window trim. Mark the holes you drilled onto the head rail by placing a screw into each hole then pressing the screws into the wood.
How much depth do you need for inside mount blinds?
3⁄4″ is the minimum depth required for inside mount blinds.
What is the best fabric for Roman shades?
The main reason linen and linen blends are the best fabrics for Roman shades has to do with the weight and structure they provide. The other great thing about linen is that it can be transformed into a variety of colors and textures to suit almost any design style.
Should blinds rest on window sill?
In most cases blinds look and work the best when they rest on the window sill. No one is ever going to notice extra 1/2″ of length and this keeps them from blowing in a slight breeze. If you prefer for the blinds not to touch the windowsill, you should deduct 1/4″.
Should Roman blinds be recessed or not?
In summary, for Venetian, roller and vertical blinds, we would recommend they be hung from within the recess. However, Roman blinds would be better suited outside the recess, as they are able to let more light enter into the room.
Where do you hang Roman blinds?
Typically Roman blinds are installed inside the window recess, outside the recess, or fixed to the window architrave (frame).
