Velvet roman blinds

  • Glamorous and timeless
  • Soft and cosy
  • Thickness can help block light and reduce noise
  • Creates warm living spaces and bedrooms

Velvet roman blinds look elegant and feel cosy making them perfect for bedrooms and living spaces. Whether you want to bring a touch of luxury or create a more relaxed feel, velvet is one of those special fabrics that can do both. Velvet’s thickness can help block light, provide privacy and help insulate, making it as functional as it is attractive. Please note, velvet fabric is woven so it has to hang a certain way, so it takes more fabric than usual to create a roman blind.

Choosing where your roman blind sits on your window frame

Outside fit is best for blocking light and insulation when lowered, and letting in more light when raised as it clears the window. But you will need to consider how far your window frame juts out from the wall; the corded option will hold the blind 20mm away from the wall which will clear most window frames, while the chain controlled option will hold the blind 40mm off the wall to clear larger frames

Inside fit looks neat and tidy, especially when closed and sitting flush with the front of the window frame. However, when raised, inside fit roman blinds cover a large portion of the glass because at least one fold’s worth of blind is visible at all times. As this will block light and view and is not recommended for small windows. It’s also more likely to fade your fabric

Frequently asked questions

  • Any room that doesn’t get humid like a bathroom or kitchen, so try romans in bedrooms, nurseries, living spaces and home offices, over single doors with glass panels. Consider adding lining for better light blocking and insulation

  • Spot clean away any marks with as soon as you notice them; a cloth and a bit of warm water and mild detergent will do the trick. Don’t scrub or scour or use harsh chemicals, just dab gently. Do not machine wash or dry clean

  • We think you’re clever enough to manage that. We have step by step guides to help too. Besides, our DIY measure and installation model is part of what makes our products so affordable.

  • If there’s enough depth within the window recess to fit the blind (see our measuring guide) then an inside fit is a clean and tidy solution; just be aware on very small windows this means the blind will obstruct some of the view. An outside fit (when combined with back rolling operation) is better for not letting in light or cold air as it creates a better seal over the entire window and frame.

  • We try to get it to you within 10 working days although when it gets busy that can be longer. We’ll stay in touch via email to let you know how progress is going.
