Roman shades can add a whole new dimension to your living space as they are simply styled and beautifully functional. There are many different types of roman shades available to suit your needs and décor. One of them is insulated roman shades. Insulated roman shades, also called thermal roman shades, have an insulating piece of fabric on the window-side layer of the shade. They will not only make your home more beautiful and but also more comfortable. Insulated roman shades when made to the right size in width and length keep you down right cozy. They repel the heat and the cold that is trying to come on into you house through your windows. Almost all other window treatments just let the heat and cold come on into the room through the openings in the slats whether horizontal or vertical.
To accomplish this insulating, they need to be mounted inside the window frame where they look their best anyway. Outside mounted romans let heat and cold escape into the room from the sides, especially the hobbled type that leave big open spaces for the heat and cold to come through. With the cost of fuel and energy rising with no ceiling in sight, coupled with the record setting cold weather in winter and heat in summer insulated roman shades should be awarded a best buy award.
