The truth of the matter is that you are only limited by your imaginations as far as combining colors, fabric textures and patterns is concerned. For instance, the constructed ones are recommended for use on individual windows that are banked on a wall. To get a dynamic effect, contrast colors between the curtains and the Roman shades or you can match the fabric of the shades and curtains to get a seamless look.

History of Shades: An Evolution from Regular Shades to Roman Shades

History of Shades: An Evolution from Regular Shades to Roman Shades

As society saw every tool and material being evolved over the passage of time, so did window treatments

 

In 1940s, first ever window coverings were made up of plain pieces of waxed paper and oil linen intended to keep the light, rain, snow, heat and dust out from homes. 1960’s saw people switching from heavy draperies to shades which started off as durable and lightweight aluminum shades. To help cut-off energy crises of 70’s era, window dressing industry innovated honeycomb shades in 1980s. This product used to trap air inside to keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer. In 1990s, silhouetted shades were introduced with light-control and super-soft fabric vanes hanged between two fabrics. After that, 2000 saw remote-control systems for shades controlling indoor privacy, light at the touch of a button as well as versatility in fabrics and design used. Instead of just using Roman blinds to drape big windows, mostly people in the present prefer to go beyond regular Roman shades because, not only do they improve the aura of the house, but are also maintainable.
