How to Clean Roman Blinds

What are Roman Blinds?

Roman blinds are probably the most classy and stylish types of blinds on the market, with them being used in homes, restaurants, bars and many, many other types of establishments they are probably one of the most popular too.

Roman blinds are similar to roller blinds except in that they use a pleat system as opposed to a roller.

While traditional blinds and curtains remain an appropriate interiors choice, Roman blinds are becoming more popular than ever. Whether your home is modern or traditional, or a mix of the two, Roman blinds are a versatile choice that suits an array of interiors. They are compact and clean-cut, falling straight without wasting any space.

Dressy enough for a living room, Roman blinds can also bring a calming effect to a bedroom, brighten up a kitchen and will even add a softer touch to a bathroom, provided they're kept clear of splashes.

Roman blinds can be made of any fabric like silk, suede, hemp, cotton, linen, or wood, but as they are exposed to sunlight, rain, and dust, they need regular vacuuming and a good cleaning every now and again to extend their life.

Can Roman Blinds Be Cleaned?

So what you really have to think about when choosing your beautiful Roman blinds is not only the colour, size and style you want, but also how you intend to keep them clean.
