I recently decided to take down the roman shades in the living room and dining room. The only time I ever raised or lowered the shades is when I was cleaning them. Even though the shades were not inexpensive almost every time I raised or lowered them the strings would come unattached because the shades weighed so much due to how tall our windows are. Reattaching the strings meant dragging the ladder out and climbing up into the window to reattach them which got old really quickly. To give you an idea of how large our windows are I am average height and can stand comfortably inside the windows!!!!
The amount of light that comes in now is amazing! I only wish I had done this SOONER! I know this look isn’t for everyone but I am loving all the sunlight now……
