Roman Shades are a great solution for adding color to a room or blocking out light, however sometimes they can make a room feel a bit too heavy. Sheer Roman Shades are great because they still let in some light, but make a room feel airy and open.

Depending on the color and density, sheers can change the whole mood of the room. They fill the area with light that's diffused by whatever color you choose. Brighter sheers will make a room feel like it's glowing, while darker, denser sheers help reduce glare.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS   Ask Tom  
   
Q:   Can the shades in the photo above be made without horizontal lines?  
    Asked on 3/10/2014 by Angela from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   First the answer is Yes,

The Roman shades in the photo are made with horizontal seems. This style is also called "Constructed Roman Shade". The seems (and sometimes made with bars) keep the fabric straight and fold neatly all the time.

For a more relaxed and loose style we an make these roman to be "Unreconstructed". In this case the fabric is sewn to rings at the back of the shade that holds the fabric and make the folds.

When closed this shade will look like a flat fabric with folds at the bottom only or sometimes without.

Q:   Are these shades cutting the heat too?  
    Asked on 8/21/2012 by Stephen from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   Depending on the fabric opacity some sheer fabrics will cut more light and heat and some less. However SheerWeave fabrics (that are mainly used for solar shades) will do a much better job.

We can make roman shades using SheerWeave fabrics (called Solar Roman Shades)

Those can cut the heat by letting only 10%, 5% or 3% of the light come into the room.

Here is a photo of Solar Roman Shades in 1% installed in 300 E 23rd Street:
