History of Shades: An Evolution from Regular Shades to Roman Shades

History of Shades: An Evolution from Regular Shades to Roman Shades

As society saw every tool and material being evolved over the passage of time, so did window treatments


In 1940s, first ever window coverings were made up of plain pieces of waxed paper and oil linen intended to keep the light, rain, snow, heat and dust out from homes. 1960’s saw people switching from heavy draperies to shades which started off as durable and lightweight aluminum shades. To help cut-off energy crises of 70’s era, window dressing industry innovated honeycomb shades in 1980s. This product used to trap air inside to keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer. In 1990s, silhouetted shades were introduced with light-control and super-soft fabric vanes hanged between two fabrics. After that, 2000 saw remote-control systems for shades controlling indoor privacy, light at the touch of a button as well as versatility in fabrics and design used. Instead of just using Roman blinds to drape big windows, mostly people in the present prefer to go beyond regular Roman shades because, not only do they improve the aura of the house, but are also maintainable. 


Roman shades, originally from Rome, were held in Rome’s Coliseum as huge retractable coverings used to protect people from sun and dust, which was largely due to construction in that era. Erected on long poles, with large pleats made while retracting, the system was similar to what modern roman shades provide. Offering “Romanesque style” to window décor, today’s roman shades come with variety of color, material, and designs. Whether cordless, blackout, or top-down, bottom-up, roman shades are the modern appeal to interior décor.
