Mount Type
Inside mount means the window coverings will be mounted and hung on the inside of the window frame, or the ceiling. Not recommended for shallow windowsills. Outside mount means the window coverings will be mounted and hung outside of the window frame, making it ideal for shallow windowsills or for more complete light blockage by reducing the halo effect.

Essential Roman Fabric Content List

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THEM

WHY OTHER HAPPY CUSTOMERS DO

“I was having difficulty finding a blind or shade for a large, high window. Prices were so high at other places and I needed a motorized shade because of the height. I was so pleased with this Roman! Exactly what I wanted and at an affordable price. - Carolyn K., Pennsylvania

Recommendations and Specifications

  • Factory will deduct approximately 1/2 inch from the width on inside mount orders to ensure a proper fit.
  • Fabric-wrapped headrails come with standard corded and upgraded cordless lift only. Continuous cord loop and motorized lift options have metal headrails with fabric attached to front only.
  • Soft Fold will cause some discontinuity in the pattern due to pleats.
  • Multiple shade orders of different heights may not have the same size pleats. We recommend ordering all shades using the longest length in the room and with the same lift system.
  • Standard lift cords are located on the back of the shade unless a valance is ordered, then they are located on the front.
  • Lift cords and headrail components will be visible from the back on sheer fabrics.
  • Valance upgrade available with standard corded and optional cordless lift systems only.
  • Fabric on products ordered without 6" valance upgrade will fall over the top of the headrail (waterfall style).  If the 6" valance upgrade is chosen, the fabric will fall behind the headrail, closer to the wall and valance will cover the headrail.
  • Outside mount valances come with valance returns.
  • Fabric will fall 2+ inches from the wall on outside mount. We recommend 4+ inches be added to the width of your shade when outside mounting to prevent light gaps.
  • Soft fold is only available with standard light filtering liner or blackout liner.
  • Optional standard liner color (white or ivory) will be visible from street. Optional blackout liner comes in ivory.
  • Color of unlined shades will be seen from exterior.
  • Motorization is not available with outside mount.
  • Fabric color can vary from one dye lot to another. To ensure that all materials are from the same dye lot, please order shades for the same room at the same time.
  • Fabric Roman shades may have wrinkles in the material after installation. Most minor wrinkling will smooth out over several days. For quicker results, you can use a garment steamer on the back of the shade, being careful to avoid direct contact with the fabric.
  • Hold down brackets are not available on this product.
  • Motorized options for this product are not covered under our FIT Guarantee.
  • No-tools Headrail is only available in the color white.
  • The locking mechanism on the No-tools Headrail will be located on the opposite end of the control side selected for Continuous Cord Loop. The locking mechanism will be located on the right side for Cordless and Motorized options.
  • The No-tools Headrail option is only available for Inside Mount.

Motorization Details

  • At least one remote is needed per order. The 5-channel remote allows you to operate up to 5 shades on a single frequency. When adding a multi-channel/frequency remote, please select 'No Remote' for any additional motorized shades you want to add to and power with it.
  • Rechargeable remote-control Motorization lift system upgrade includes rechargeable motor battery and charger.
  • Battery charge will last up to 6 months based on an average-sized shade raised and lowered twice a day.  It takes approximately 4 hours to recharge the motor when fully depleted.
  • Remote reaches from approximately 65-80 feet away from shade.
  • Remote is already programmed to the motorized shade.  All that is required is to connect the battery to the motor and your shade is ready to operate.
  • For more details, see product Motorization Programming Guide.

Great Roman Shades! by 12-30-2018



My husband and I absolutely love the roman shades we received from Select Blinds! The quality is great and installation was fairly easy. The free samples helped us choose the perfect fabric color so I recommend ordering lots of samples first. I will definitely order from Select Blinds again in the future!

Roman shades should be full and these shades are made with too little fabric. “Valence” is an ugly piece of hanging fabric and in the picture it looked like it was a piece of wood covered with fabric. Wish I’d only ordered one to sample rather than the complete set.

difficult installation by 09-04-2019



I have installed many shades and blinds over the years, and these were by far the most difficult. The studs on the brackets were a net fit to the holes in the top of the shades, there was no room for adjustment. And the holes in the shades were not equal distance from the end of the shade. Also color was lighter than the sample swatch I ordered. Disappointing.
