Style
The first thing you will need to consider when you want to install high quality designer roman blinds is the functionality of the room in which you will install them.  Depending on whether this is a bedroom, a kitchen or living room will have an influence over the functionality and subsequent style of your Roman Blind.  In a room which you use every day you may decide that you would like a more simple fabric, whereas in a bedroom or dining room you could be a bit more adventurous and select one of our fabrics with metallic weave throughout or one of our beautiful structure fabrics.

Colour
We have a range of fabrics which also come in a plethora of colour ways to enable you to match your style and colour to your interior scheme.  If you are not sure you can always take advantage of our free sample service to ensure that you are colour matching correctly or seek advice from one of our interiors professionals.

Design
As well as a huge range of plain fabrics we also have a great may fabrics available which incorporate a design.  This could be one from our Designers collection and these truly enable you to create a piece of art for your window.  Using roman blinds with designs is a great way to add some flair to a plain room or one that is missing art on the walls.

Location and Light
Location will play a large role in your selection of roman blinds.  The location factor must include location of your windows and their position in the room.  Consider where your windows are situated and how much natural light that enters through them.  This will help you to determine whether roman blinds are the right choice for you.  Once you have decided on a Roman Blind, however, you can also decide on the style of lining you would need for the room.  If you are installing the blind in a bedroom you may wish to opt for a blackout lining, but alternatively we can also offer your blind with a standard lining, with no lining at all or for that extra added luxurious feel, interlined.

Size and Fabric
When choosing your roman blinds, you will need to consider how you will be fitting your blind.  You can either opt to fit them inside the window recess or outside of the recess.  A consideration when you have a particularly large window is also the weight of the fabric you are using as a substantial amount of fabric is used when creating these blinds and can cause the blinds to be heavy on operation.  If you are unsure or need some advice then please call the Eclectics team who will be happy to help.
