Roman Blinds


UK: Roman Blinds: Roman Blind Manufacturers & Suppliers




Roman blinds hang flat when lowered, and bunch up into soft pleats at the top of the window when raised. The pleats are kept in place by wooden rods or slats that are sewn into casings in the lining of the Roman blind. The Roman blind is raised and lowered using a cord mechanism threaded through eyelets fixed to the backs of the horizontal slats. Roman blinds can be lined or interlined, giving them a much more substantial feel compared to roller blinds. The disadvantage of Roman blinds compared to roller blinds is that they do obscure the top few inches of the window when raised. Leading UK suppliers of Roman blinds are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
