The Ultimate Guide to Roman Blinds

Made to measure roman blinds are super versatile. They can offer both a relaxed or a more formal look, making them a firm favourite in many homes. Thin rods are inserted into pockets at the back of the blind so, when opened, the fabric folds into neat pleats. All our roman blinds are made to measure with earth-friendly fabrics - - - the perfect fit for any window!

We love roman blinds and here’s why…

Relaxed or formal, they are simple and versatile

Roman blinds from Stitched are made of super-soft fabric and they filter light gently for a relaxing ambiance. Roman blinds can be made from any of our 300+ fabrics, from cottons to silks, with your choice of lining and hardware. As well as being able to choose an array of fabrics for your roman blind, they can be layered with curtains to bring extra texture and warmth to a room.

They keep your home cosy

Roman blinds can also provide great insulation by trapping warmth and keeping draughts out. Our made to measure roman blinds can have thermal lining added for extra help keeping the cold out and the heat in. The thermal lining in your roman blinds can also give them a more sumptuous look, as an extra layer is added between the fabric and standard lining, creating a luxury feel for your windows.

They are ideal for every room in your home

We have over 300 roman blind fabrics to choose from so you’re sure to find one to suit your interior decor. Most can have blackout lining added which is perfect for bedrooms to help you get a better night’s sleep. Make sure your measurements are accurate to ensure total darkness and to stop light creeping in around the edges. Check out our handy measuring guide here to get the perfect size blinds.

What’s the best fabric for roman blinds?

Any of our 300+ eco-conscious fabrics work for roman blinds. Cotton is a classic fabric and always a popular choice. Our striped fabrics, such as Ian Mankin Ticking 01, is also popular for roman blinds and looks great in bedrooms or to complement a neutral interior. As all of our roman blinds are made to measure, get creative in our online studio and pick the perfect fabric for you. Velvet, wool or even silk - - - the choice is yours!

Thermal roman blinds

Fabric blinds have the added benefit of being natural insulators. We offer an extra thick “bonded” lining which doubles up to make our blinds keep the heat in. Really chilly house? Opt for one of our thicker fabrics like wool blinds or flax blinds which will keep your room cosy!

Inside or outside the recess?

Roman blinds can fit inside and outside your window recess. Outside a recess will make your window look bigger and will maximise natural light during the day. Inside the recess is great for space saving or layering up with curtains or roman blinds on the outside of the recess. For that peace of mind, especially in children’s bedrooms, all of our blinds come with up-to-date safety devices and mechanisms for wherever you choose to install it.
