Points to Consider
- Do I want superior view through and privacy when I choose with a simple pull of a cord.

- as in most products does cost weigh in on the choice
Manufactured romans. Done in a soft fabric with loop cord lifting system and room dimming liner. Inside mount.
Manufactured vs Custom
Manufactured finished usually do not line product like tailored custom made romans. Custom are made from any of the drapery fabrics so the choices are almost endless and can be coordinated with drapes, toppers and bedding. Custom is a much more polished finish but then costs becomes a factor. Costs are based on fabric yardage and per yard costs.
Casual Look vs Classy
If you like the looks of Romans and like natural cloths and/or light filtering fabrics then Manufactured Romans can be for you. Choose between flat or a hobbled (folded) look which is always an elegant look. Romans stack at the top and tend to be bulky. This is true of either Custom or Manufactured Romans.
Shapes in the custom line can be adapted well given care to design and measuring. Templates will be created where needed. Only a handful of custom manufacturers can pull off a well put together shaped product the works and look good.
