Window Makeover with Roman Shades {before & after}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

Do you love roman shades? I do! Today we are sharing our window makeover with newly installed roman shades. We live on a main road and were in need of shades to ensure privacy during the evening. The natural lighting is minimal in both of the front rooms that face the road. We didn’t want anything to bulky or overwhelming, just something to provide a little privacy. A few weeks ago I shared my in-home design consultation with Julie from Decorview. This week a wonderful installer named Andy from Decorview, installed our shades in under one hour.

Be sure to reference my post from early September which illustrates the measurement and design consultation process with Decorview. You must see the amount fabrics and shade options available, it was a fabulous experience! The shades operate on a power remote which I will be sharing next week. You have the option though to bypass the remote and simply install just the shades.

The quality of the fabric is exceptional. The are lightly lined although you can get a blackout option as well. I can’t wait to install these in our bedrooms with the black out option.

Late in the afternoon we do get sunlight through the windows. My son tends to do his homework at the table (even though he has a desk! ha) and the glare is sometimes a bit much. As you can see when they are half shut, it keeps the glare down.

When they are completely shut, the provide the necessary privacy we needed. The each operate on their own, meaning you can open and close the separately. There is an option to do one large shade but we decided that it would the shade would be overwhelming with such a large window. It’s all a matter of preference but for me, I love the individual shade option.

As you can see the shades simply click underneath the top casing directly into a plastic clip. Here, you can see Andy the installer adding the clips.

Everything about these roman shades are clean lined, unobtrusive and easy on the eye.

See those little clips on the end of the shades, those are the only thing clips attached to your window casing. The modern elegant look is stunning.

We also installed the exact roman shades in the adjacent playroom/study.

Here is the room after the makeover during Christmas last year but without the roman shades.

The roman shades are perfect for the evening. I mean, who wants to see Sponge Bob on our TV as they drive by at night. That little sponge is a serious distraction! haha

We decided that a roman shade, batten front bungalow fabric in camel would be ideal from their Design Studio Line. The color of the fabric is called camel. I realize this is a sponsored post but I can honestly tell you that my experience with both the design consultant and the installer was exceptional. The quality is top-notch and I am incredibly pleased with our new roman shades. I will be back next week to share the remote-power option. These guys work off of a remote and it’s insane our cool it is to watch them open and close with the touch of a button. My grandmother who is in a wheel chair is amazed at how easy it is to open and close the shades. If you are looking for more window design inspiration, be sure to check out the Decorview blog. Thank you so much Decorview for allowing me to share your fabulous product and providing complimentary shades for our home.
