    • Pleated Shades

      Pleated shades offer a unique look and are a very affordable window covering option. The folded accordion pleats add dimension to living spaces and one of the biggest advantages to this type of window covering is how it stacks completely flat when raised in order to allow a full, open outdoor view. The pleating detail is available in standard 1 inch pleats, but the 2 inch pleat option is better suited for larger windows. Both of these practical pleat sizes are available in sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics, which will provide you full control and easy management of room lighting and achieving your interior shading preferences.


      Why you’ll love pleated shades:
      • Available in unique textures including sheer fabrics to soften your view, provide UV protection, glare reduction, and moderate to complete privacy.
      • Pleated shades are an attractive solution for specialty shaped windows including angled top, arched windows, and skylights.
      • Style options include bottom-up / top-down, which allow you to lower your shades from the top or raise them from the bottom to maintain privacy or block unwanted views—all while letting natural light in.
      • Control options include cordless lift or motorized lift, making them an option for homes with small children and pets.
      • With a variety of colors, they can easily be matched to wall colors for a seamless look and almost disappear from view for a chic, continuous look.

      A fast-growing trend for this type of window covering is using sheer pleated shades paired with drapery panels, or they also look great as stand-alone window treatments. For a fresh, flexible window covering that delivers on fashion, form and function, be sure to inquire about pleated and cellular shade combos that provide three shades in one! The top of the shade is typically a sheer shade or light-filtering pleated shade, while a cellular shade is placed at the bottom and usually features a blackout liner or room-darkening fabric for the ultimate in privacy, light control, and insulation.
