Roller shades? Roman Shades? What would you do?

5 years ago

I'm trying to decide on window treatments. In the past I lived in subdivisions with small lots, so we used blinds and curtains for privacy. Now I'm on 10 acres where privacy isn't as much of a concern and I'm looking at other window treatment options. (We still need privacy on bed/bath rooms, but even that is mostly at night when the lights are on.) I have craftsman style trim around the windows and would love to show it off instead of hide it behind curtains. I'm leaning towards roller shades or roman shades, so I can have decorative fabric. I've never had either style. Is one better than the other? Any suggestions on where to buy them? Is there any other type of window treatment that you recommend instead of shades?
