Roman Shades in Chandler, AZ

Interior design is about style and function. Roman shades are a great versatile option to upgrade the aesthetic of your living areas. These elegant shades are easy to operate and have versatile applications.

At Arizona Specialty Shutters and Blinds in Mesa, AZ, we can help you to control the natural light, maintain a clean, open look, and give a luxurious feel to your bedrooms, living rooms, dining area, home office, or any other space you choose.

Form and Function

Roman shades are the modern evolution of the Roman Empire traditional designs for providing shade to the audience of the Colosseum. The simple, collapsible design allows for the material to ‘stack’ together when the shades are ‘open’ and stretch to cover a window’s surface area when ‘closed’. They take up a minimal amount of space and have a few different ways to operate.

Roman Shade Styles

The traditional concept of Roman shades used a series of pulleys to stretch and stack the shade material. Modern roman shades use similar but much smaller systems today. Small cords are used to smoothly change the shade material’s position.

Roman shades have a few varying styles:

  • Standard Cord
  • Continuous Loop Cord
  • Cordless
  • Motorized cord – automated shade controls
  • Bottom stack – cord pulls material up to close ‘shades’ and stacks on the bottom of the window when “open”
  • Top stack – cord pulls material down to close ‘shades’ and stack on the top of the window when “open”

Different operation styles are better for different window positions. For example, an unreachable second-floor window may be better served with an automated shade for ease of use and safety. Our design craftsmen will put their expertise together with your spaces to provide the best options for all of your window covering needs.
