Pleated shades offer a unique look and are a very affordable window covering options. The folded accordion pleats add dimension to living spaces. 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 styles come in sheer, light-filtering and room darkening fabrics to meet your specific light control preferences.

  • Style options include top down bottom up, 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.
  • Pleated blinds are an attractive solution for specialty shaped windows including angled top, arched windows, and skylights.
  • Available in unique textures including sheer fabrics to soften your view, provide UV protection, glare reduction, and moderate to complete privacy.
  • Control options include a cordless lift or motorized lift, making them an option for homes with small children and pets. Pleated window shades bring a fresh, airy dimension to rooms and are an economical way to refresh your home decor.
