How Long Do Roman Blinds Last?

Shades outlast blinds in terms of longevity, from heat-blocking cellular and honeycomb shades to stylish and modern Roman shades. They can probably match the timing of when the average homeowner changes their entire home décor, with an average lifespan of 5-7 years.

But that’s only if it’s properly maintained. A well-worn, wrinkled, or faded shade sags down, thus allowing more light to enter a room. Roman blinds have an advantage over roller blinds when it comes to eliminating glare because they have a cord that allows the shade to move up and down without creating any sheen.

They are also easier to adjust and can be opened freely at any time, unlike the traditional roller shades which can come with a slight delay and still put some kind of obstruction in your view.

Corded Roman blinds are available even in the smallest of window sizes; this is not the case with other types of window shades. The standard corded Roman blinds are made with a rectangular frame, which is a popular size for most windows, especially in European homes.

You can also choose a tape-measure option on the window blinds to get the right length and width. This is different from the roller type that requires you to measure and cut correctly on each line as well as the open box and drop them into the correct place in order to install it properly.

The tape-measure length of most window blinds ranges between 60″ and 96″. The cordless Roman shades are available in any width you would like, ranging from 25″ (standard) to 55″, and any length from 27″ to 48″, again depending on what size you choose.

What Is The Best Lining For Roman Blinds?

Thermal Insulation (for roman blinds). If thermal properties are required for your roman blind, we recommend a bonded interlined or bonded blackout interlined blind. A bonded interlining has the same insulation properties as a thermal lining for blinds.

Roman blinds are available with a variety of lining materials, including natural and synthetic options. Natural fabrics include wool, linens, and silk, while synthetic options are composed of heavy cotton. Natural fabrics will absorb heat through their body but not as much as a natural lining does.

Synthetic linings are thinner, tighter, and more durable than other fabric options for roman blinds. You can also use thermal or blackout lining for your Roman shades. Thermal lining is made from a single layer of fabric that is double-woven to keep it sturdy and exclusive in its properties.

With this interlining, you can hear the difference in quality with other fabrics in terms of noise, movement, and the warmth they create inside your home. The artificial lining materials that Roman blinds are available in include the following:

Bonded blackout interlined. This type of lining has been developed especially for blinds and is not meant for thermal properties; however, it does block light very effectively.

Bonded blackout interlined curtains work very differently than wool blankets using mohair fiber with superior thermal insulation properties because each fiber shaft is bonded to another.

Bonded blackout interlined curtains are made with a lightweight woven fabric to prevent heat loss, yet it is also constructed of a smooth down-proof material.

This prevents the fiber shafts from bonding with each other and allows them to slide along the rods as you raise or lower the blind. Therefore, this type of lining allows for privacy in any room and still allows light to enter when desired.


Can Ikea Roman Blinds Be Cut To Size?

Yes. While many of the blinds in the collection are available in a variety of sizes, pleated shades and roller blinds made of recycled polyester can be easily cut for custom fits. Both come in multiple colors, styles, and fabrics, allowing the homeowner to select from a variety of selections that blend with their décor.

Roman shades are available in a variety of fabric choices and colors, including velvet. They are also ideal for any room because they fit perfectly into spaces and can be adjusted to find your perfect balance of privacy options, light control, and style.

The pleated shades can be cut to the desired size by hand. This sizing guide can help you in measuring your window or opening accurately in order to find the right size roman blind for your home:

  1. Width:

Measure the width of your window from side to side (left to right).

  1. Blind Size Length:

Measure the length of your window from top to bottom (back to front).

  1. Roman Blind Height:

Measure the distance between the top of your window and any other obstructions that may block light from entering, such as a sconce or curtain rod.

Cleaning roman blinds is very easy. Just take a damp, lint-free cloth and wipe the blind surface gently and slowly. You can also use a dry brush to brush off the dust from the surface of the blind.

Always remember to brush from top to bottom, especially if it has tapes or strings that have been hanging for a long time. Let them dry for some time before you fold or close them.

If there is any stubborn dirt on your roman blind, clean it by using mild liquid detergents mixed with water and then rub it gently on the surfaces of the roman blinds.
