Types of Roman Blinds

There are many different kinds of roman blinds, including:

  • Flat: These are the essential blind. They’re elegant and have no stiff inner parts, just the fabric.
  • Relaxed: With a curve at the bottom, these blinds go well with styles popular in warm climates. If your Oakville home has a bit of southern or beach inspiration, they may be exactly what you need.
  • Hobbled: These have horizontal bars sewn into them, offering more structure and a more dramatically folded look.
  • Balloon: With a ribbon or strip of fabric down their center, these blinds make an elegant shape on the bottom and add extra flair. They can be more feminine and are great in classically styled homes.
  • Top-down: If you like blinds mostly for privacy, you’ll love that these blinds move from the top down. You get sunshine up top and privacy on the bottom of the blind.

While other kinds of roman blinds can look great, find that flat blinds work best in most modern homes in the area, so this is what Milton Blinds stocks.
