Decorating & Furniture/roman shades vs. vertical blinds
We are building a condo which will look like an Italian villa. It will be worth over $1,000,000. Do you think vertical blinds in the bedrooms would not be appropriate for such an expensive home. Our other choice is the roman shades. With the verticals, we would use a cornice board. With the roman shades, we would not. I thought, perhaps that the verticals would look more like drapes. What do you think?
Hello Marsha ,
Vertical Blinds Would look just fine . However , take a look at the Hunter Douglas "Luminette" . The Luminette is a fine product with a strong track and components . The Luminette is the big sister of the Vertical blind line .
Roman shades : The Top/Down - Bottom/Up style will allow the user to have privacy control and full view of the outdoors when the top is lowered to your liking . Per say covering only the bottom half of the window and still seeing out with only the the pull cords in line of your view . "Woven Wood" blinds operate same .
Drapes : Stationery Side panels can be a nice touch to finishing up a window treatment project . Adding a tie-back -or- buiding a "Bishop Sleeve" to them .
