Electrical Options for Roman Blinds
Although slightly more complex structurally than Roller Blinds, Roman Blinds can be motorized although this option is comparatively rare and this is definitely NOT an option with the more delicate Roman variations such as Relaxed Shades and Tulip Shades.
There are various Electric Roman Blind systems available. Some retain the traditional system of the pleats bunching up from the bottom up, while others bunch up from the bottom down, hiding the bunching pleats in a recess at the top of the mechanism.
If you can have Electric Roman Blinds, it’s only a short step to electronic control.
This means that you can have the following options.
•A simple wall-switch to control the level of the Roller Blind
•A Remote control
•Timer switches pre-programmed to your selection
•Sensors calibrated to daylight levels that also allow for seasonal variation
•A central, computer controlled arrangement that can incorporate all of the above
Care, Cleaning and Maintenance of Roman Blinds
•Roman blinds are easy to care for.
•Use static dust gloves to clear off dry dust.
•If needed, wipe the Blind with a cloth dampened with very mild soapy water.
•More stubborn stains might require a citrus-based cleaner or a non-ammonia based cleaner.
•If the Blind becomes very dirty or is the casualty of an accident, it might be necessary to uninstall it and, depending on the material it’s made of, either hand wash it or send it to be professionally cleaned.
•Take care when pulling the cords when raising or lowering a Roman Blind. It’s important that the pull remains even so that the Blind hangs straight and so that the cords don't break.
