How to Shorten Roman Shades

A roman shade will add a touch of style and elegance to any room. They offer clean, classic lines that are suitable to any type of décor. Approaching the problem of roman shades that are too long is not difficult. If you have roman shades that you love but they don’t fit the length of your window, you can easily make an adjustment and provide some cost effective budget decorating.

Things You’ll Need
Metal measuring tape
Pencil or fabric marker
Scissors
Hot glue gun and glue
Measure the length of your window using the metal tape measure. Metal is the best choice for this type of measurement. A cloth tape may stretch and give you an inaccurate reading. Make a note of the length of your window.

Lay the shade out on the floor or a suitable working space, such as a table.

Move the cords so you can stretch the shade out. Depending on the type of roman shade you are working on this might mean just pulling them to the side or untying them from the back.

Measure one side of roman shade and mark it with a pencil or fabric marker. Mark the shade to match the length of your window. Then mark it again, adding an additional four inches. For instance, if your window length is 60 inches, mark the shade at 60 and 64 inches. Repeat this step on the other side of the shade, marking the correct length plus four inches.

Lay the metal tape measure across the bottom of your shade so each end is slightly under your marks. Draw a straight line between the marks on both sides using the measuring tape as a guide. Only draw across for the lower measurement. Using the previous example, you would draw a line at the marks to measure 64 inches.

Cut across the bottom of the shade, using the line you drew to keep straight.

Fold the fabric of the roman shade up twice, until it reaches the desired length, using your marks on the fabric as a guide. Use a hot glue gun to secure the fabric on the back, creating a hem in your shade.

Reattach the strings for the roman shade by sliding them over the hem or retying them.

How to Repair Roman Shades

Roman shades, a popular window treatment for modern homes, may fail to raise and lower for one or two reasons. The strings that work the shade may become dry-rotted and snap. Or the plastic rings that guide the cords may become brittle and break. In either case, it is a simple task to fix the shade, so that it works as good as new. Roman shade supplies are easily found at fabric and craft stores and are also available online

Things You’ll Need
Roman shade
Screwdriver or drill
Nylon cord
Plastic rings (comparable size to the current ones)
Needle
Thread to match
Remove shade from window using a screwdriver or drill. Lay shade on a flat surface, face down and fully extended.

Check shade for broken rings and snapped cords. Remove the unifier knob at the side where the gang of cords work the shade up and down by untying the strings and sliding the knob off.

Remove the broken cords by untying the string at the bottom ring of each vertical line and pulling it out. Reinstate any broken rings at this time. Hand sew them in place where the old rings were, catching both lining and face fabric.

Replace with new cording. Beginning at the bottom of the shade, tie the new cord to the ring, and slide the cord through each ring in the vertical line including the eyescrews that run horizontally across the shade header. Each line of cord will go up to the header and then thread into each eyescrew across the header. Leave 36 inches, or so, of cord hanging free on the side where the gang of cords will be.

Repeat the process at each vertical row of rings and cord as necessary.

Gather the gang of cords together, trim the cords evenly, and slide the unifier knob on to the group. Knot the grouped cords, and pull the knob down over the knot.

Rehang the shade. Adjust the tension on the cords by tugging the shade up and down a few times. You may need to retrim and reknot the cord gang if the cords don’t hang uniformly.

How to Install Roman Shades On Bay Windows

It can be a little intimidating at first to think of installing window treatments on a bay window, especially roman shades. Fortunately, though, it’s much easier than you might think. You just need a few simple tools and a little time.
Things You’ll Need
Brackets
Roman shades
Screwdriver
Pencil
Drill
Tape measure
Measure and mark where to attach the brackets to install your new roman shades. Choose a section of the bay window to install the first shade. Measure 2 inches in on the casing or ceiling above the window from each side of the window, and make a small mark. Hold the shade up in the casing or against the ceiling, as close as you can get it to the window without touching. Use a pencil to mark the position of the back of the top of the shade, near where you made the first mark. Do this on only one side. Set the shade aside. Measure the distance from the mark you just made to the window. Using that measurement, make a mark on the opposite side. These marks will determine where the rear of your brackets will go, so make sure they are the same on both sides of the window.

Install the brackets on your chosen section. Hold a bracket up to the marks. Line up the end of the bracket with the 2-inch mark, and the back of the bracket with the mark you made while holding up the shade. Once the bracket is lined up, use the drill to make small starter holes in the spots where the screws go through the bracket. Loosely install the screws to hold the bracket in place. When you have all screws in, finish tightening them. Repeat to install the bracket on the other side.

Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to install the brackets on other sections of the window. It is much easier to install the brackets for each window without the shades in place, so don’t hang roman shades in the bay window until you’ve put up all the brackets.

Hang the shades. For each shade, lift the header up to the brackets. Tilt the shade toward you and gently push it partway into the brackets, then tilt it up and away from you until it slides in and catches. Congratulations! You have installed roman shades on a bay window.

How to Calculate Supplies for a Roman Shade

Roman shades are the ultimate in multitasking window décor for all types of decorating schemes. They provide privacy, filter or block sunlight, and make an excellent foundation for many types of layered window treatments. Sewing them is as simple as sewing a straight seam; however, before you make a trip to the fabric store, you need to do some measuring and calculating to ensure that you buy the proper amounts of fabric and hardware. It isn’t difficult, but you do need to pay attention to detail.
Things You’ll Need
Tape measure
Paper
Pencil
Calculator
Decide on the Type of Shade
Decide if you want to mount your Roman shades as inside or outside mounts. An inside mount will place the shade inside the window opening, which will allow your window’s trim to be seen. This is a smart idea if you have decorative moldings. An outside mount will mount on the edge of the window’s trim, and will cover a larger area than just the window itself. You might consider this type of mount if the window trim is very plain, or if your window’s framing is too shallow to allow the hardware for an inside mount. (You’ll need about 2 inches or so of frame depth for an inside mount.)

Decide on your decorative fabric and lining. Heavier fabrics and linings block light and shadow; lighter ones only filter them.

Gather your measuring materials together.

Take Window Measurements and Calculate Supplies
Measure the height and width of the window(s) you plan to cover. If you’re mounting the shades inside, measure the inside width and height. If you’re mounting outside, measure outside the window frame. Measure to the nearest 1/8 inch.

Calculate the measurements for each fabric piece (decorator fabric and lining) for each shade. Add 4 inches to the width and 8-1/2 inches to the length to get your pattern measurements. This will show you how much decorator fabric and lining fabric you will need for each shade. If your fabric is 54 inches wide and your shade pattern measures less than 25 inches across, buy a piece of fabric half the total length of all the shades. If the fabric is more narrow, or if your widows are wider, purchase the total combined length of all the shades you plan to make.

Calculate the amount of cording you will need. For each window, measure from the left bottom corner of the shade up to the top left corner, across the top of the mounting area and down the right side. Measure again from the bottom right corner to the top and back down the right side. Add these measurements together. Multiply by the number of shades to get your total yardage.

Calculate the yardage of Roman shade tape by multiplying the height of the shade by 2, and then multiplying by the total number of windows you’re covering.

Add approximately 5 percent to your fabric and notion yardage to give yourself some breathing room. Mistakes happen.

Calculate your Hardware Needs
Count the number of windows you’re covering. For each window, you’ll need a cleat for the cording, a cord lock and a cord condenser.

Multiply the top width by the total number of shades you are making. This will give you the length of mounting board you need to purchase.

Decide how many pleats you want to have when the shade is drawn up. Ideally, they should be 6 to 8 inches apart. Multiply that number by the width of the shade to get the total length of wooden doweling or plastic ribbing you’ll need to purchase.
