The simple style and design of pleated shades brings beautiful dimension and a calm, airy feel to any room.  The elegance of these evenly spaced, crisp folds of fabric makes a fashion statement and adds personality to every window.  They provide that beautiful cellular shade look, at a great price, that is easy to operate.  Pleated shades can complement your lifestyle, day and night, by providing UV protection, glare reduction, add a softened view or provide moderate privacy.  Designed to stand the test of time, you can rely on the performance of these exquisite window shades for years.

Pleated shades have the ability to balance, enhance, refresh or reinvent a room.  Available in a vast array of colors, styles and opacity levels, it is easy to choose a style that you love.  With the same color fabric, these shades create a chic, continuous look across multiple windows.  Combine two different colors, styles or opacity levels to create a style all your own.  Tailoring to your preference for privacy and light control, pleated shades are crafted using the finest sheer, light filtering and room darkening fabrics.  You can also add additional privacy and light control with the use of a liner or backing fabric.

Operating options include the popular top down / bottom up, allowing you to lower your shades from the top or raise them from the bottom.  Lowering only the top portion lets you maintain privacy while still letting natural light in.  Pleated shades can also be customized for specialty shaped windows including angled top, arched windows and skylights.  Control options include the continuous cord loop, cordless and motorized for remote operation.  Continuous cord loop is recommended for easier operation because the cord will not change lengths as it is raised or lowered.  Cordless option completely eliminates long pull cords, producing a clean, neat look around windows and a safe environment for children and pets.  For ultimate convenience, motorize your shades so they can be raised or lowered with just the touch of a button.  Pleated shades create a small, neat stack when raised for a completely open view.

For enhanced fashion and functionality, try a combination of two styles on one head rail. Select sheer or light filtering fabric for the top portion to allow for natural light, and room darkening or blackout fabric for ultimate privacy, light control and insulation.
