I love roman shades.
I made my first roman shade for my own house over 20 years ago. Since then I have made hundreds of roman blinds for people all over the world. I have perfected my technique and found just the right supplies to use, so that my roman shades function well, look beautiful, and stand the test of time.
It is also important to me that our shades are affordable. I don’t have expensive retail space for my business – I run my business out of a studio on my property. By keeping my overhead low, I can keep my prices low.
Our basic style roman shade includes a headrail that we make ourselves out of wood, and cover in fabric. This is more affordable than using an aluminum headrail system, and I can pass these savings onto my customers. Of course, if someone prefers the other style, I also offer this option.
Curious about how our prices compare with Restoration Hardware’s?
These prices are taken from the Restoration Hardware website on June 8, 2016 and are in USD:
1 Relaxed Style Roman Shade in 100% linen, lined, size 24″ x 36″ –
Restoration Hardware price (Belgian Linen Cross-Weave) – $339 or $254 member
NikkiDesigns price – $103
1 Classic Style Roman Shade in 100% linen, lined, size 48″ x 60″ –
Restoration Hardware price (Belgian Linen Cross-Weave) – $909 or $681 member
NikkiDesigns price – $237
What are some other differences? We use 100% organic cotton lining for our shades. The fabrics we use are all 100% natural, and many our certified organic.
Don’t get me wrong – I love Restoration Hardware, I just wanted you to know why our roman shades are less expensive than theirs (and many others)!
