What Is A Flat Roman Shade:  A Flat Roman Shade is a functional treatment offering a simple, classic look to any room.  These Roman Shades function by pulling them up to open the window or down to close it.  Using a minimal amount of fabric, Flat Roman Shades are a great way to add color and softness to a room, while giving you the ability to control light, privacy and insulation.


In addition to roman shade instructions, we also offer: box pleat valances patterns, box pleat balloon valance patterns, pinch pleat drapery patterns, rod pocket drapery patterns, box pleat balloon shade patterns, parafold roman shade patterns, and scarf swag patterns
