Roll Ups, Tie Ups,and More
You won’t have to look hard to find creatively inspired shade styles that offer decorative appeal while delivering privacy. Roll-Up shades make a great choice for a child’s room or casual living area; the simplest styling might actually lure you into making the shade yourself (or, as most homeowners prefer, work with a professional fabricator to create your window treatments).There are many tie-up options too, all featuring a cording system that enables the shade to be pulled up into poufy balloons or swagged at the lower edge.Roller blinds, just like the old fashioned white pull-up type,can be paired with a coordinating valance or set of side panels. For privacy at the lower half of the window, a bottom-up shade pulls to any height from the sill and acts much like a cafe curtain, giving a partial view. And don’t forget about embellishments-beads, tassels,fabric bands, and braids can help customize even off-the-shelf shades to perfectly suit your tastes
Sometimes the best solution for windows that look out on a busy street or unwelcoming site are cafe panels.Cafes can be a integral design element when embellished with contrasting ribbon, and buttons, or when shirred tightly onto a rod. Sometimes cafes are the only treatment on a window, but they often look especially well on a window that features beautiful molding or an interesting shape at the top. Cafes can be combined with a window topper made of the same fabric for a cohesive look in the kitchen, bathroom,or nursery, The light and airy feel of cafes, along with their easy open, easy close functionality, make this a winning style
Bottom Up, Top Down Roman Shade
A unique twist on the roman shade is the bottom up version. These shades are installed the same as a regular shade, but by adding extra cords, they can be pulled up from the bottom or lowered down from the top to any height on the window. A small valance is mounted at the top of the window to hide the head rail that connects the shade to the top of the window. There must be at least 1 in. of space all around the inside of the window frame or molding to mount the shade properly. Bottom-up shades are popular in the bathroom or bedroom, where both privacy and a view are important.
Drapery Panel Length
Deciding where to end panels is often a matter of personal preference. Different looks can be achieved when the fabric is allowed to brush the floor or cascade into graceful folds. Consider these factors to help achieve the look that is right for you:
- Sill Length: Plan for shorter panels to fall at the sill or at the bottom of the window molding,not in the middle of the wall space
- Floor Length: Panels should end approximately 1/2 in. above the floor for a smooth, custom look.Floor-length panels fall freely yet stay orderly and tidy- a good idea if you have small children
- Break Length: Adding 2 in. to the floor length allows panels to gently sweep the floor, creating a full design effect along the lower portion of the drapes
- Puddle Length: Adding 8 in. to 12in. to the floor length creates the most relaxed feeling of all as the fabric forms a “puddle” as it fans out on the floor
