Decorative Soft Romans

For a little more elegance and personality, you cannot beat fabric roman shades as an alternative to traditional roman blinds. They are available in a seemingly endless range of fabrics as they are made using most curtain fabric ranges available.

Decorative Soft Romans

How do these shades differ to roman blinds?

Although their operation is essentially the same, soft romans are made from curtain fabrics and are fully lined. As such, they have beautiful soft folds that drape between the battens that reflect a true formal designer look.

"Recently renovated our whole house and contacted Amaru through word of mouth of colleagues…couldn’t be more satisfied with the end result! They came out and advised on products to suit our budget and went further to match our décor and chose the colour to match in perfectly!! It was ordered and installed in the timeframe they specified! I WILL be recommending this company to others…very professional…couldn’t be happier with our experience! Thank you!

Soft romans are an attractive addition to any room of the home. They tend to look best when left partially open, as this emphasises their unique soft folds and are why they are well suited to formal rooms.

"I wish to share what I experienced through doing business with Amaru. All the staff I came in contact with seemed to be very professional and experienced, this shows through as they demonstrate superior customer service combined with a great eye for window fashion design. I appreciated their assistance in choosing my curtains and vertical blinds. All it took was one phone call and Renee arrived with all the samples. I loved dealing with a company that delivers a superior product on time, installed with complete attention to detail from start to finish. I will be returning to Amaru and I recommend them to all my friends, family and work colleagues.

FAQs about Decorative Soft Roman Curtains

How much of my window will be covered when the shade is raised?

The amount of stack will be dependent on the length of your shade. If you want to clear the window as much as possible for maximum sunlight penetration, we can mount the shade above the window if space is available.

Will I be able to see the cords through the shade?

The lifting cords will always be visible from the outside (through the window) and will be visible through sheer materials. To avoid this, opt for a more opaque material.

How do I care for my roman shades?

You can dust your shades using a soft, clean cloth or feather duster. For a more thorough clean, you can use a hand held vacuum on low suction. If you plan to use any cleaning solutions on the fabric, always test it on a swatch or inconspicuous area first.
