One of the most common questions I get is, “Why are Roman shades so expensive?” Windows by Melissa put it in the most excellent way:
“Why are roman shades so expensive? Because it takes about 80 steps to create one and you have to do each one right. If you so a step wrong and don’t realize it till 20 steps later you have to undo all the previous steps! Also, roman shades have a lot of components. Roman shades are made up 14 different pieces and it requires at least eight different tools to create it including a sledge hammer and saw. Additionally, mistakes aren’t easily remedied on roman shades. If a mistake is made, more often than not the shade has to be recreated entirely. If the dowel cases are sewn on incorrectly and a seam of top stitching has to be removed it leaves unsightly needle holes in the fabric and the fabric must be replaced. There is so much room for error in the construction of a roman shades. So the slow process and tremendous amount of detail and focus required to make it is why the labor charge is so high on a roman shade.”
