Where Are Roman Blinds Best Suited?

The use of roman blinds is a trend that is unfading and are constantly being used. They can best suit any room or space, such as in living rooms, bedrooms, offices and studies. Roman blinds can add beauty and simplicity to give a decor that is professional and neat. 

When it comes to your kitchen or bathroom, you have to be very conscious about the fabric that you choose for your roman blinds. For example, kitchens and washrooms are two places where humidity levels can be high, so having thick fabric blinds or curtains may mean that the moisture in the air would get taken into the fabric causing them to become damp and moulding. 

Another example is when cooking in the kitchen can add oil and grease to blinds, causing them to mould from any food attached to them as well as collect dust particles. But this can be limited and does depend on the type of fabric that you choose for your roman blinds.

Roman blinds are able to suit all rooms, the type of fabric that you choose for your roman blinds best suits them to specific rooms. Velvet, faux silk and taffeta like fabrics can absorb moisture quickly causing a vast amount of problems. High moisture absorption will damage the fabric and the beauty of it. It is advisable to use cotton or polyester fabric when choosing your roman blinds for a high humid environment like the kitchen or washroom.

Lighter fabrics like faux silk and cotton can help in hotter climates and heavier fabrics such as velvet or cotton mix fabrics are best suited to cooler climates.
