When the blind is raised folds will appear in sequence to give a decorative effect, If lowered the fabric is generally flat. Roman blinds in the raised position and fitted into a recess of a window will have what we call a stack depth, in other words you can expect a fifth of the the blind drop to be covering the top of the window when the blind is fully raised. This can restrict light, so we often suggest fitting a Roman blind outside the recess. This does three things it keeps more light into the room, it can give a false looking height to the window or door and as it is outside the recess better coverage of the window can be achieved. We have a good collection of fabrics to choose from or you can supply your own fabric and we will custom make and fit the blind. Full motorisation is available if required.
