What Are Waterfall Style Roman Shades?

Roman shades come in a range of styles. The waterfall style is one of the most popular options, especially if you prefer a clean-lined minimalist décor style.

Will this style of Roman shade work for you? What types of benefits do you gain from the waterfall style? Here’s all you need to know.

What Is a Waterfall Roman Shade?

The shade's name comes from the way it "falls" off the headrail at the top of the shade. You may also hear these shades referred to as cascading roman shades. When lowered, the material cascades off the headrail, creating small loops in the material that sits neatly on top of each other. This style is also often called a Soft-fold or Hobbled Roman shade.

A flat-fold style of Roman shade has a more minimal clean-lined appearance when it falls off the front of the headrail. The appeal to many homeowners on all waterfall-style shades is no valance is required at the top of the shade, giving it an uninterrupted appearance.

Will a Waterfall Roman Shade Fit Well in My Windows?

The answer depends on the depth of your window and the depth of the headrail or cassette of shade you select. The depth of the headrail or cassette is determined by the mechanism used to raise and lower the shade. A cord lock is different than a cordless or motorized Roman shade. Because this varies by manufacturer and control option, it is wise to consult a window covering professional for advice on what would fit best in your windows.
