Making Roman Shades - Not As Easy As You Think

Sep 13, 2008
Making roman shades is not as easy as what you might have seen in magazines. In fact, you should fully understand the task that you will be undertaking before taking the plunge. It may be quite a surprise, but lots of people are not very handy and for them, making roman shades can be as hard as trying to reach the moon.

If you are not artistic, just because you have total control, does not always guarantee that you will create a roman shade that will be the envy of your friends. Some people just have to realize that D.I.Y projects are sometimes not meant for everyone and no matter how hard they try, they are doomed to failure. It can also be time consuming as a lot of thought needs to go into the design and building. So if you are always rushed for time, our opinion is that you should not attempt making roman shades.

It is very important that you get the right measurements when making your own roman shades. This not only applies to the measurements of each window but also to the materials that you will be using. Choose the patterns carefully and ensure that not one hem is out of place. Remember that an expensive looking roman shade does not have to cost a lot of money. The more professional your roman looks the more expensive it will seem.

Choosing the right colors is also very important when building your own roman shades. The trick is to try to imagine what the finished product will look like and whether the colors will actually match the theme of the room. Yes, you do want your work of art to stand out but only for the right reasons.

Next it is time to focus on your budget as making your own roman shades can sometimes be more costly that buying ready made or even custom made shades. It is always wise to compare what the total product will end up costing you against the price of ready made shades before you actually purchase the raw materials.

Although it might sound like a good idea to make your own roman shades, always consider the opinion of experts. There are some people who are experts when it comes to enhancing the look of windows. You can ask for their opinion so that you can make an informed choice. Always remember that at informed choice, although it may take longer, is better than a fast choice. Making Roman Shades can be fun but it can also end with disaster if it is not done properly.
