Which Roman Shade Style Should I Choose?

Roman Shade With Front Slats

In this style, the roman shades has slats or bars on the front of the shade that adds visual interest especially when done with a solid fabric or textured fabric.

Relaxed Roman Shade

In this style, there are no horizontal slats. These shades bring in a softer look in the room with a curved (relaxed) edge at the bottom. You would not see any pleats or folds when it is all the way down. It is mainly decorative and may require some styling when you raise it. Relaxed shade look best when stitched with a medium weight Cotton fabric.
