Roman Blinds By First Choice Blinds

A roman blind from first choice blinds is actually more of a curtain, because it is made from soft, un-stiffened materials.
Most roman blinds are lined with another soft cloth to give depth and weight to the product check out www.firstchoiceblinds.ie for more options.

Some are operated by a pull cord, which unlike conventional roman blinds, is ‘locked-off’ by an integrated venetian blind cord locking mechanism.

Others have an ‘endless chain’ loop, much like a roller blind. This mechanim gives the smoothest operation.

Our Roman blinds can be drawn up or down, and can be locked-off at any intermediate position.

  • Blinds give total privacy when fitted to standard recessed windows.
  • Excellent glare reduction is achieved just by using the standard ecru lining.
  • 80% blackout effect can be achieved by using the blackout lining.
  • Gives a soft curtain feel, but has the sleek operation mechanisms which eliminates the need for ‘tie-off cleats’
  • Most fabrics can be either dry cleaned or machine washed.

PRODUCT OPTIONS From First Choice Blinds

  • Standard lining
    • A translucent lining that adds a heavier feel to the fabric.
  • Blackout Lining
    • A blackout lining is opaque and won’t let any light through the fabric
  • Coloured Lining
    • A coloured lining can be chosen to compliment the main fabric, or to affect the look of the blind from the outside of the house.
  • Venetian Blind Headrail
    • A heavy duty Headrail that allows the blind to be made bigger
  • Modern Roman Blind Headrail
    • A heavy duty Headrail which incorporates a side chain for the raising/lowering of the blind.
    • Note: this Headrail will create a gap of approx 10mm on the control side of the blind, since the control cannot be covered with fabric.
  • Blinds can be made from customer’s own fabrics and linings for more on this visit www.firstchoiceblinds.ie.

  • The chain operation can be mounted to the right or left, and must be specified on order, since it cannot be changed after manufacture.


  • There are maximum and minimum sizes to observe for every different roman blind product. Please check the specification for the product you are interested in.
  • It is advisable to consider using the same headrail system in situations where there are more than one blind next to each other – such as a bay window.
  • We cannot guarantee that the side hem of a roman blind will always be perfectly straight, since it is made from a soft cloth. Therefore, customers should be aware that when two blinds are fitted next to each other, a bowing effect might be apparent in the sides of the blind.
  • The height of two blinds made to the same size may not necessarily sit at exactly the same level as each other, because they are made from soft cloth. Some adjustment in the height is possible by removing the fabric from the Headrail, and re-positioning it on the Velcro fixing of the Headrail.
  • A roman blind is actually more of a curtain than a blind, and will act accordingly. Fabric may stretch and change shape over long periods of being left in the same position.
  • The wider the blind is, the more cords are needed to raise/lower the blind.  This can make the operation of larger blinds more difficult to level off. The blind may require some ‘dressing’ to make the blind hang to the required look.
  • For some cases we can join the fabric

  • Bay Windows
    • Roman Blinds are very suitable for bay windows.
    • Bedroom
      • A standard lining is good enough for a dim out effect; alternatively, a blackout lining doesn’t allow any light through the blind.
      • Please note: A 100% total blackout cannot be achieved since there will be light passing in around the edge of the blind/recess. Also, there will be light gaps between blinds on bay windows.
    • Lounge
    • Study
    • Conservatory
      • Usually fitted to the Pvc frame of the conservatory.  It is expected that the fabric may slightly touch the opening window handles when raising/lowering the blind.
    • Kitchen
    • Bathroom
      • Not suitable where the blind is expected to get wet, or for excessively steamy rooms where there is no extractor fan
    • Dining Room
    • Sliding Patio Doors
      • Not ideal where head height is restricted, because a roman blind usually stacks up to a minimum of 160mm. If you would like to fit a blind to a patio door, then it’s recommended that you allow an extra 160mm minimum above the door, and fit it there.
