Modern romans can be defined as those that are made out of self lined fabric. As there is no need for a separate backing, this style of roman is a very cost effective way to bring soft furnishings into your home. The fabric comes in a wide range of colours and patterns, to suit every home. At Cost Less, we use and recommend the “aluminium back batton” method for making this style of roman. These “back battons” give the roman strength and stability, allowing us to comfortably make romans up to 3 metres wide. Roman blinds are traditionally made with a cleat and pulley. They can now come with cord locks, or chain controls. If it is a streamlined yet soft, modern look you are after, the modern roman is for you.
