There are several factors that will influence your decision as to which type of window blinds you want to install. There’s your personal style and preferences, and of course your budget. Truly, certain blinds work best for certain homes. But if there’s one type of blinds that evokes a sense of luxury and elegance in homes, that would be the roman window blinds.

Roman window blinds are very popular for several reasons. However, there are certain issues that homeowners should be aware of before purchasing them. Below are some of these issues. If you feel that the pros far outweigh the cons, then roman window blinds are worth considering. Otherwise, consider looking at the other available blinds for your home in Castle Hill or elsewhere.


Dangling Cords

Roman window blinds are operated by a series of cords threaded through rings and creating loops in the fabric. More often than not, the cords are left dangling behind. This poses a safety hazard as little children and pets may end up being strangled in the dangling cords. There are window blinds that offer child and pet friendly features, though. Talk to a retailer of blinds in Castle Hill to know more about this option.



One of the issues you’ll come across with when you choose to have roman window blinds installed is with lighting. Because of their one-piece design, these blinds allow only small amounts on sunlight to enter the space. This is especially true when you compare them with slat-type of blinds in Castle Hill.


Reduced Privacy

Privacy is one of the main reasons for installing blinds in Castle Hill. Slat-type blinds are more effective at providing privacy than roman window blinds. This is because if you want to let the sunlight in, you’ll have to stack open the blinds. This is also true when you want to enjoy the full view outside your window. When you do this though, it exposes your window and the inside of your house.
