These shades typically use two different types of materials: One heavier and one sheer for light control and a bit of extra privacy when the leading tone is open. This type of shade has the added benefit of additional style. The combination of the first darkness lifted, or partially raised, with the inner shade showing creates a simple, elegant look. As with other roman shades, the choice of materials and textures can create widely differing looks.
Insulated Roman shades are different from double roman shades. Some fabric shades include this option, as do shades made from different types of materials. Bamboo shades, for example, look nice but do not offer much in the way of insulation on their own. With an insulating fabric attached to the inner part of the shade, you can have the lightweight look of the tone with the insulating properties of a material. The insulating fabric also blocks more light and adds some privacy. If these are essential factors, consider looking into your options.
