Motorized Roman Shades

Here’s a great example of motorized shades installed in a customer’s vacation home in St. Helena, CA.

We installed a combination of motorized roman shades, together with motorized black out shades. The black out shade gives the customer the option of making the room dark during the day. If you want to sleep or watch TV during daylight hours, black out shades are the perfect compliment to the primary decorative shade.

As you can see in the photo below, when both the roman and black out shades are closed, all ambient light is virtually eliminated. This is the best way to protect your furniture, floors and finishing from the harmful UV rays of the Sun.

The triangle shape of the front window, while architecturally pleasing, is a tough space to deal with in terms of installing the motors that work the shades. With the roman shades, we installed fixed panels above the motorized sections to handle the triangular portion of the window.

The client and interior designer chose the Conrad woven wood fabric for the roman shades.

Another advantage of the roman shades is that they hide the black out shades when opened. This makes it possible to eliminate the valance for a more streamlined look.

Until next time,
