Pleated shades are perfect for those looking for classic 1" pleat size in a single-layer shade with more definition and
texture than a roller shade but without the slats of horizontal blinds. The fabric of pleated shades gives you flexibility in light and privacy control while the accordion folds occupy very little space at the top of the window when raised. Pleated blinds are similar to honeycomb cellular shades.
Light & Privacy Considerations:
While pleated shades do not have the same energy efficient properties as cellular blinds, they do have a similar visual appeal and will fit in the same types of windows. Premier Shutters and Blinds of Virginia selection of pleated shades offer a budget friendly alternative to cellular blinds providing similar light and privacy control at a lower price. Pleated shade fabrics are made of weaved, light filtering woven polyester with an optional privacy liner for additional light blockage, insulation, and privacy.
The unique structure and versatility of Pleated shades allow for multiple lift types for raising and lowering.
For maximum light blockage and energy efficiency, we recommend Blackout collection.
Cordless Shades are easy to use, child/pet safe, and have a sleeker look than a corded shade.
Top Down/Bottom Up:
This handy option allows you to let the window shade
drop from the top, as well as rising from the bottom. This is a great
way to maintain privacy while still allowing light to come into your
Continuous Cord Loop:
The lift cord stays the same length eliminating the
extra cord hanging down when the shade is raised. This is a good option
on large windows or when the cordless option is not available.
Your shades can be motorized for extra child safety or for hard to reach windows and skylights.
