Roman Shades for Angle Top windows are one very practical solution. This Lake Tahoe home outside of Reno NV had windows with a rake top. This particular window set had 4 openings. We could have done four separate shades, but when looking at all the options, we had to make a choice.

If you look closely at the video, you will see that not only are the tops angled, but the bottom is also angled on the left window. So, if we did a shade inside of the opening, it would have been very complicated. Since each angled window has its own charge, it is typically more expensive to do individual shades. Therefore, we decided to do one large roman shade over the four windows.

When doing this type of specialty window treatment, you need to know some limitations. We chose to make the bottom rail stay horizontal. With these styles of roman shades, the shade will only go up as high as the low part of the angle. It is possible to make the shade stack up to the top with special configurations, but in this case we kept it simple. Why?

This type of screen shade fabric doesn’t do well when manipulated. If it is forced into an awkward position, the material can crimp. Not a good idea. Secondly, the view out of this window is not the focal point of the home. The view is out the opposite side of the house. Therefore we selected this style for their roman shades.
