Balloon Shades get their name from the decorative puffy features of its lower portion. Its upper part may have similarities to that of a Roman shade, but the balloon shade is much softer and has billows of fabric located at the bottom. A balloon shade is installed on a mounting board, just like the Roman shade. It even has a vertical row of rings that you can use to adjust the shade’s length according to your liking. If you want to give your space an elegant look while not covering the windows that much, this window treatment is exactly for you. Last and most important of all, the balloon shade’s soft, full construction doesn’t require you to make highly accurate measurements before getting one for your space.
