Roman Shades

Roman shades, also known as fabric shades, combine the beauty of fabric window treatments with the easy operation of a shade. Elegant and versatile, roman shades come in a wide variety of styles and features from insulated, to room darkening and blackout, to light filtering and sheer. Roman shades have the style and options that can work well with almost any decor. Blindsgalore makes shopping for roman shades easy and very affordable. No need to leave your home. Simply pick your product and get it delivered right to your door. Choose from top-quality brands such as Bali, Levolor, Comfortex as well as our own high-quality signature line.

Fold Types

Roman Shades come in four different fold styles: relaxed, flat, plain, and hobbled. Flat and relaxed fold roman shades offer a more classic or modern look, while hobbled or plain fold styles lend themselves toward more formal, elegant settings and decors.

Relaxed Fold

A relaxed fold, also called a European or casual fold, has a smooth, drapery-like appearance with a gentle curve of fabric stacked on the bottom rail.

Flat Fold

A flat folded roman shade, also called a seamless fold, lies flat like a continuous piece of fabric, making it an ideal choice for bold patterns or prints.

Plain Fold

Plain folded romans offer a clean structure with seamed fold lines. Each pleat of fabric is backed with sturdy bars to strengthen the shade.

Hobbled Fold

Also known as a waterfall or teardrop, a hobbled fold has larger, looped pleats of fabric that run the entire height of the shade. It is similar to a plain fold, but with larger, more outstanding pleats.


Since roman shades are also called fabric shades, there are obviously plenty choices available to you. Many of the materials used are a polyester blend for durability and stain resistance. However, there are also linen, cotton, faux suede, patterned fabrics, weaves and textured fabrics available.


Adding to roman shades' versatility is the range of available lift options including, top down bottom up, cordless, and motorized. Consider cordless roman shades if you have small children in your home, as dangling cords can be dangerous. Plus, cordless shades offer a cleaner, uncluttered look. Top down bottom up allows you to lower the shade from the top, raise it from the bottom, or both - this is a nice privacy and light control feature. Motorized roman shades provide the ultimate in cordless convenience and is especially useful for high or hard to reach windows.

Light Control

Opacity refers to the light filtering properties of a material. Roman shades come in every opacity imaginable – from semi-sheer (light filtering) to semi-opaque (medium room darkening) to opaque (room darkening or blackout). There's no shortage of options. Blackout roman shades, which use opaque fabrics, are a perfect choice for bedrooms, nurseries, and home theaters.


Roman shades are available in a wide selection of colors. You can also choose roman shades with patterns, stripes, and textures.

Custom Roman Shades

Custom roman shades are made based on your window measurements and specifications so they fit properly and work better. Our roman shades are of top quality and come in a much wider range of colors, styles, and options. The superior production process and premium materials used in our products help extend the life of your roman shades, as well as provide a superb product that complements your other home furnishings.

Roman Blinds

Roman shades are window shades. All window shades operate by either rolling up (like roller shades on a spring-loaded roll), or they fold up. Roman shades fold up. Each unit of the shade, folds unto itself.

5 stars


By blonde from louisville

getting fabric samples was a great start.  the actual roman shades are beautiful.  well made and will last for years.  the diagrams for installation instructions were a little confusing.  the manufacturer needs to have an user help them so they will be clearer.

"Great find"

By Tess from Illinois

After searching all the home accessory stores this was quite a find.  The pricing was comparable and in some cases less.  Sending the swatches out is the best.  I ordered quite a few and it was so helpful in making my decision.  The shade fit perfectly and it was so easy to install.  I am extremely satisfied!
