Most of our clients are asking, what is the difference of Roller Shades to Roman Shades? Roller Shades and Roman Shades are similar in many ways especially when it comes to its purpose, to prevent light from getting in the room and give the owner a privacy that they want. They also both have a chord on its side so you can roll it easily up and down.
The most important difference of roller shades and roman shades is related to its mechanism when pulling up and down such as when opening and closing the shades. The roller shades is more straight forward since it only pulls up and down the fabric and winds in the head tube while roman shades mechanism is a bit more complex with its elaborate strings that folds the fabrics to push it up or down. It is both a very good option for blocking unwanted sun-rays.
However, due to rapid innovation of blinds, Roller Shades are now available in various colors and designs suitable for residential use. Roller Shades materials and designs are also up to date. Motorize Roller Shades are also available in the market. The only advantage of Roman Shades is its elegant and cozier look. Roman Shades are more suitable for luxury. Silk and linen materials are commonly use for Roman Shades. Unlike Roller Shades which is simply a large fabric attached in its mechanism, Roman Shades consist of slats that folds horizontally under one another when rolled up.
