Maintaining Roman Shades and Make a Better Place for Living

Nothing can make a better place to live in, than when simplicity and luxury creates a harmonious balance. And what better way to create this harmony than by adding a few roman shades to your home. Made of natural materials like fabric and bamboo, both for the home owners and the environmentalists can be happy about this choice of home décor. Windows are certainly an important part of any home for all the obvious reasons. Lie eyes are to humans, windows are to the homes. Decorating them, accentuating them adding to their shape in the right way can give the house its well deserved face lift, almost any and every time.

It is a known fact that maintaining shades is far easier than maintaining stupendous lengths of fabric in the form of curtains. No one has the time or the energy to invest in curtain maintenance, considering the fast paced life that almost everyone is into. However, level of maintenance can differ in shades considering the fact that they can be made of many different kinds of materials. The shades that is more commonly available in the market, those which are made of artificial materials like faux wood or plastic may not require maintenance at all. Slight dusting or wiping once in a while can keep it spic and span for decades. However, as natural materials enter the scene, maintenance also creeps in with it. Roman shades are mostly made of pure natural materials and thus, is subject to wear and tear. So, when these shades are included as a pert of home décor, one should be ready to invest some time to ensure that these luxurious but delicate shades last for longer.

The fabric shades may be the most difficult to maintain in roman shades. When fabric is hung up on the windows, dust and dirt quite inevitably gathers on the same. Like curtains, the fabric shades also get dirty (more often than not) if they are not cleaned regularly. If kept hanging without providing the necessary care for a long time, the fabric gathers piles of dirt and the entire room looks shabby and unkempt. This can be avoided by vacuum cleaning it regularly, at set intervals. It is not necessary to clean it every day, as it may take a toll on the fabric, but cleaning once or twice a week is a good idea. Using foam upholstery cleaners from time to time can keep the fabric roman shade spic and span. Dry cleaning is also an option.

Maintaining bamboo top down bottom up shades is far easier. Bamboo, being stronger and harder than fabric, may require an occasional dusting or wiping, and it can be as good as new. But the point is that, this dusting and cleaning will have to be done at regular intervals. Otherwise, bamboo can also get affected by accumulation of dirt and grime. This information should however not scare a person off roman shades altogether. Maintaining these shades is anytime, more easily than maintaining curtains and the value it adds to the house is also highly appreciable.
