Lift Options for Roman Shades
Top Down/Bottom Up
Roman shades combine the softness of drapes with the versatility of shades and blinds. By incorporating unique lift systems into these blinds, Yourblinds.com gives you even more ways to create gorgeous rooms with roman shades.
Whether you're looking for traditional cord controls, child safety features, or flexible lighting options, there's a lift option for you. Like many shades and blinds, roman shades come with options for standard cord controls where you manipulate the rise and lower of the shade by pulling or releasing strings. There are, however, options that limit dangling cords. Some roman shades offer continuous cord loop controls that limit the length of cord that dangles from the headrail. Although this option is perfect for homes where simplicity is a must, they're also ideal for houses with small children since they eliminate cord pools and offer better safety.If you want to really maximize your light control, however, you may want to consider choosing a roman shade with a top down/bottom up feature. This option lets you raise and lower both the top and bottom rail to block some light without blocking all of it. You can pull down the bottom rail to block the light at the top or lower the entire shade and raise the top rail only. Your options are virtually limitless!
