Available in the traditional plantation style, with horizontal, aluminium battens, or the contemporary classic style, with neat and minimal folds, Roman blinds have many options to really make them your own.
What are roman blinds?
Roman blinds are made of fabric and bring a soft layered effect to your room. They lie flat against the window when they are pulled down and gather into elegant pleats when they are raised.
Why choose these for my windows?
If you love luxury and elegance, then these window coverings are the perfect choice. The layers of fabric add softness, texture, and depth as well as a touch of opulence to your home. They also create a designer focal point in a room, especially if you choose a textured design or dramatic colour palette.
What are the different types available?
Roman Blinds are available in the traditional plantation style, with horizontal aluminium battens, which gives a room a casual look. Or for a more contemporary classic style, they are also available with neat and minimal folds.
Are they a desirable choice for light control?
Reducing the amount of sunlight entering a room has the added advantage of providing great insulation. By choosing one of our performance blind fabrics, you can keep a room cooler in summer and warmer in winter, which is great news if you want to reduce rising energy costs and have less reliance on your air conditioning and heating.
What styles are available?
There are many options in textures, and colours to suit any style of décor or personal taste.
Downton is a 3m wide jacquard fabric available in both block out and light filtering options.
Austere has an organic linen-look in a range of colours which compliment current trends out of Europe. This fabric is available in block out and light filtering.
Contemporary is available in an expansive range of hues that have been researched and selected by an expert team to align with both the latest interior trends and well-loved classics. For roman blinds we would recommend block out fabrics.
Hand woven, jacquards and linen looks with linear textures add more visual depth to a space and elevates the natural look and feel.
Can these blinds control heat and glare?
Carpet Court’s range of blind fabrics that offer block out control heat and glare. The blackout fabric has a white foamed acrylic backing, effectively reflecting heat and light. If your windows are prone to receiving a huge amount of sun, these are an excellent choice from both a functional and fashionable perspective.
Can you advise me about which colour to choose?
There is no right or wrong when it comes to which colour blinds you should choose, as it is a matter of personal taste. Carpet Courts blind fabric range offers a vast selection of fabric options in block out and light filtering. But as a general design rule, it’s important to consider that warm and cool colours will have different effects in your home. Warm colours are perceived as lively, while cool colours are more calming and relaxing.
If your décor is more on the contemporary side, strong colours such as red, black, or blue will make a unique designer statement and add instant wow factor. If you prefer a more traditional or classic look, neutral colours and natural textures never go out of style and can easily be accessorised with pops of colour in your soft furnishings.
