Decorative Soft Romans

Amaru's decorative fabric Roman blinds are made in Melbourne in a nearly limitless variety of stunning drapery textiles. Soft Romans are versatile, elegant window treatments that blend well with other soft furnishings for a coordinated interior designer look. The structured folds stack pelmet-like at the top of the window, making them an excellent alternative when there isn't adequate allowance for curtains.

Fabric Choices

Amaru offers a comprehensive range of Roman curtain fabrics to best match your decor and lifestyle. Your Renaissance Romans are custom-made using drapery material that can be lined or unlined depending on the level of light filtering and insulation you wish to achieve. Each textile has its unique characteristics and performance level for blocking light, heat transfer and durability.

Because flat roman shades offer an uninterrupted continuous surface, you can choose face fabrics containing patterns or unique textures with great confidence knowing they won't get distorted as they might on a pleated top curtain.

How do soft Romans differ from Roman blinds?

Although a Roman curtains' operation is essentially the same as a standard Roman blinds' battens and pulley system, Amaru's collection of Renaissance Soft Romans are made using lined drapery fabrics instead of conventional blind textiles. These decorative Roman shades form beautiful soft folds that drape between the battens creating a more formal designer look.

Suitable Areas

Soft Romans are an attractive addition to any room of the home. These feature window treatments look best when left partially open to emphasise their unique soft folds and are well suited to formal rooms. Because the batten folds stack at the top of the window, they can be fitted to small, narrow or recessed windows where regular curtain style treatments wouldn't work.

Improved Insulation
Improved Insulation

When fitted with thermal light blocking lining fabric, Roman shades provide an insulated barrier keeping extreme cold and heat from entering your home through bare window glass. The extra layer of material creates an insulating air pocket, reducing heat and noise transfer between indoors and outdoors and protects face fabrics from fading.

FAQs about Decorative Soft Roman Curtains

Expand all
How much of my window will be covered when the Roman 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 to allow maximum sunlight and view, we can mount the shade above the window,provided the space is available.

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

The lifting cords used in the Roman shade batten and pulley system are on the outside surface of the blind; therefore, they will always be visible from the outside looking through the window. They will also be visible through unlined sheer fabric Roman shades. Choosing an opaque face fabric or adding a lining will stop you from seeing any cords when the shade is closed during the day.

Can Roman Shades be motorised or automated?

Yes, we offer motorised Roman Shade solutions to raise or lower your shades remotely and even operate them through automated programmable timer.

Are made to measure Roman curtains expensive to buy?

Custom-made Roman curtains will vary in cost based on the type of drapery fabric, linings, lengths and widths. Naturally, the more fabric and specialised manufacturing required will determine the price of a custom Roman shade. Whether looking for cheap Roman Shades in simple, plain designs right through to feature soft furnishings in luxurious high-end designer textiles, Amaru will work with your budget to create a perfect solution for your windows.

What areas do you service?

Amaru have custom Soft Romans for sale in both Melbourne and Canberra. We have showrooms in both Melbourne and Canberra or you can book an in-home measure and quote for Melbourne Metro & Surrounds - including the Mornington Peninsula and Canberra & Surrounds.

How do I care for my Roman shades?

Regularly dust your Roman 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. All Amaru custom curtains are supplied with a care label attached to their heading specific to the fabric type and care requirements of your chosen window dressing.
