These are particularly useful where space around a window is limited but work well with the majority of rooms, styles and alongside curtains. There are two main styles for a roman blind with either a standard fold or a cascade fold.
Roman blinds can be unlined, lined, interlined or with added blackout for light control. All styles lend themselves to design details from contrast edges to braids and trims.
Adding a pelmet or dress curtain to a roman blind can make it into a really elegant window dressing.
Roman blinds can be fitted either inside or outside a window recess onto a cassette headrail system operated with a side winder chain.
A very economical window treatment as far less fabric is required than for curtains.
Roman Blind Safety Regulations 2014
Legislation was passed in February 2014 to try to prevent unnecessary deaths of children from strangulation by the operating cords or chains of blinds. The new legislation aims to protect babies and small children by making sure that child safe blinds are installed in all homes now and in the future, regardless of the presence or absence of children. Under the new regulations for Child Safety Requirements for Internal Blinds it is now illegal to supply or professionally install an internal window blind which does not comply with the new safety requirements.
Roman Blinds are supplied with all fittings according to Child Safety Requirements for Internal Blinds. If the required safety devices are not fitted, I am legally obliged not to install your blind but all costs would still apply.
Any blinds fitted prior to February 2014 that do not comply with the new regulations can be fitted with the appropriate safety devices upon request.
