What are Pleated Blinds?

Pleated BlindsWindow coverings are available in many varieties and pleated blinds are an especially versatile choice. These particular shades are single layered blinds, which are an excellent choice for windows that do not require strong insulation. Since they are typically made from woven or unwoven fabric, they filter light in a warm and diffuse way, according to Elle Decor.

What Are They?

As the name suggests, pleated blinds are a single sheet of fabric or reinforced paper that has been pleated (or folded) and corded in an accordion style, to offer window cover.

What Do They Offer?

Pleated blinds can be cut to fit most any window opening and they come in a variety of colors and textures. Additionally, a reflective film can be applied to the fabric to offer protection from the light, or blackout film can be applied to provide additional glare protection or privacy.

Options Available

A continuous cord loop can be built in to draw the shade opened or closed without a loose pull cord. This sleek option can make pleated blinds a safer option in homes with small children.
Pleated blinds can be positioned to open from top to bottom or from bottom to top; a more accommodating option than other window coverings.

This style of shade is also adapted to motor or sensor control. The touch of a button raises or lowers the shade. The straightforward construction of this shade invites the consumer to manipulate the options to achieve a perfect match for their windows. Since they can be modified in so many ways, pleated blinds have become a staple in interior design.
