How far do roman blinds go up?

blue floral roman blinds showing a stack or open roman
Roman blinds create a luxurious and soft look to your room, and also provide an layrer of insulation, perfect for the colder months.  However when fitting, you may want to consider the room taken up by the fabric 'stack', when the fabric is folded up, as this determines the amount of light into the home when the blind is fully open.

The 'stack' height of a roman differs depending on fabric thickness, lining type and how a manufacturer chooses to space the individual 'flaps' or 'panels'.  This is especially important if you choose to fit within a recess.  If you have the room, and don't mind the increased light-bleed around the edge of the blind (this is usually decreased by a recess fit), then an exact fit, on the wall above a window opening might be a better option.  Again, you would still need the stack height calculated, with extra fabric needed for an exact-fitted drop and width (to cover the window enough).

For the best results and advice, it is best to contact our sales team, with your measurements and fabric preferance so we can work out an approx. stack height for you.

TIP: Consider the 'stacking' height of your Roman blind when fully drawn up, a minimum of around 25cm will be covered by fabric. If fitting outside your recess allow extra drop above your window for the stacking.
