Characteristics of Roman blinds
Roman blinds are a unique type of window cover. First of all, they are a compromise solution between classic blinds and curtains and curtains. Moreover, they match interiors designed in various styles. They combine functionality, i.e. the ability to effectively shade rooms, with exceptional aesthetics, mainly based on the way the material is arranged after rolling the blinds up - the fabric creates a decorative pelmet.
Custom-made Roman blinds are made of natural materials, which is why they are considered an ideal solution for people for whom traditional curtains and curtains are too heavy and thus dominate the window space and visually reducing the room, while the classic blinds seem too strict for them. Roman fabric blinds warm interiors without the need to hang curtains. Their natural appearance will blend in with a variety of interior styles: from minimalist, for example, arranged in a Scandinavian style, to more traditional ones.
Roman blinds are made of materials with varying degrees of light transmittance: from delicate fabrics transmitting sunlight to thicker, completely blackout fabrics. Thus, they can be used as a substitute for curtains (thinner fabrics) and/or curtains (thicker fabrics). When choosing Roman blinds for the kitchen, living room or bathroom, we can choose materials with a greater degree of light transmission. In this way, in the rooms we obtain the effect of a gentle shading with the possibility of using sunlight and limiting the view from the outside. On the other hand, when choosing Roman blinds for bedrooms or children's rooms, we can choose thicker fabrics that will not let the sunlight or artificial street lights pass through when lowered, which, especially at night, can be very troublesome and disturb your sleep. In both cases, we obtain a nice visual effect with matching to the nature of the interior design.
A wide range of colors also ensures matching to the decor. The Knall online store offers materials in an extensive color palette. Lighter colors, especially white, are chosen more often for more delicate fabrics. On the other hand, beige, gray, shades of red or even black are used more often for more fleshy and thicker materials. Thus, we match both the color and the degree to which the light transmits the light to the interior design of the room.
The thickness of the material is also related to the way the fabric Roman blind is designed. There are two types to choose from: with and without muntin bars. A muntin bar is a rod inserted into tunnels, specially sewn in the fabric of the roller blind, which stiffens the fabric. Blinds with muntins work well with thicker materials, which need additional support in order to fit nicely when rolled up/unrolled. On the other hand, thinner and more delicate fabrics will not necessarily have to be equipped with muntins. The muntin bars are spaced at distances no greater than 30 cm for heavier (non-translucent) fabrics and 20/25 cm for light and thin fabrics. However, if in one room, e.g. a living room connected to the kitchen, there are several roller shutters equipped with muntins, they should be at the same distances - after rolling the folds of the material They will be identical, and the whole thing will fit perfectly.
The choice of fabric blinds: with or without muntin bars also depends on the size of the window in which the blind is to be hung. The muntin bars are used primarily in shutters of larger dimensions, then there will be no problem with arranging the material in equal horizontal folds. This rule also applies to thinner, transparent and translucent materials. In windows with a smaller surface, you can do without the muntin bars, even with slightly thicker fabrics - the material is tighter here, creating a delicate form.
Roman blinds for the living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom
The type of room has no influence on whether it is possible or not to place a Roman blind in it. The width of Roman window blinds offered in our online store is up to 3 meters (maximum) - therefore they will work well in larger windows of the living room or balcony. With fashionable large glazing, they can be arranged double, one next to the other. This type of blinds, despite the fact that they are made of natural materials, will also work well in the kitchen and bathroom. You just need to ventilate these rooms so that the fabric does not remain damp.

Our Roman blinds are controlled by a chain mechanism, which is very convenient and allows you to stop the blind at any height of the window. Equally important, the mechanism is small and aesthetic. The profile on which the material is placed is equipped with a special Velcro, so there is no problem with keeping the blind clean.

How to choose a color
Roman blinds are sewn from natural materials, therefore they are most often matched to the styles of the interior, which are based on natural accessories such as Scandinavian or boho. Then mainly subdued colors (eg beige, gray) are selected. However, the colors of Roman blinds are also vivid ones, eg red, and the fabrics can decorate various patterns. Therefore, regardless of the style of the interior, Roman blinds can be matched with an appropriate color scheme.
