Showcasing six elegant styles — Flat Roman Shades, Cascade Roman Shades, Aventura Roman Shades, Relaxed Roman Shades, Tulip Roman Shades and Pleated Roman Shades — our Roman Shades collection is crafted to introduce elegance to the window while also providing excellent privacy and light control.


The difference between Roman Shades and our other types of shades is that Roman Shades fold onto themselves as they are raised, creating a series of soft lines. When lowered, they achieve a gorgeous cascading effect, and when lifted, the folds give your shades a clean and full look. Roman Shades have the same fullness on a window as a drapery, but are more closely tailored to the lines of the window.

What is the difference between Roman Shades and Roman Blinds?
There is no difference between Roman Shades and Roman Blinds. At The Shade Store, we call them Roman Shades, but each offers you a sophisticated solution to elevate your interior décor.

Roman Shade Customization Options
We offer a variety of customization options to enhance the appearance and function of your custom Roman Shades:
  • Control Types: We offer Continuous Loop and Cord Lock control options for all of our Roman Shade styles. Cordless control is available for our Flat and Cascade Roman Shades, and Motorization is available for our Flat, Cascade, Aventura and Pleated Roman Shades.
  • Linings: Privacy or Blackout Lining can be added to our Roman Shade styles. Privacy + Interlining is available for our Tulip and Relaxed Roman Shades — this unique solution offers privacy, protects the material and provides excellent insulation. It also adds body and fullness to your Roman Shades.
  • Optional Features: Our Top Down Bottom Up option for select Roman Shade styles allows you to lower your shade from the top or raise it from the bottom for greater light and privacy control. We also offer Upholstered Valances to give your Roman Shades a clean and finished appearance.


If your home décor is more neutral or traditional, we might recommend Flat Roman Shades or Cascade Roman Shades in a solid material like Linen or Wool Flannel — part of our exclusive Holland & Sherry collection. These materials convey understated elegance and complement all types of décor.

To achieve a stately, formal look, our Relaxed Roman Shades and Tulip Roman Shades are an excellent choice. Crafted to be primarily decorative, they make beautiful backdrops for your gathering spaces.

We’ve put together a few tips on what to consider when shopping for Roman Shades for your windows:

Everyday Use:
Our Flat, Cascade, Aventura and Pleated Roman Shade styles open and close easily, making them great everyday window treatment solutions for privacy and light control. Our Relaxed and Tulip Roman Shade styles are primarily decorative and are not designed to be opened and closed regularly.

Privacy & Blackout:
If you are looking to achieve privacy in your home, we recommend adding Privacy Lining to your Roman Shades. Blackout Lining is perfect for bedrooms, media rooms and other spaces where you would like complete darkness.
