Pleated Shades combine the visual appeal and style of cellular shades while being easy on your budget. While cellular shades use multiple layers of fabric, pleated shades use a single, continuous layer of fabric to block or filter incoming and outgoing light. These shades are perfect if you are looking for a single-layer shade with more texture and depth than a roller shade but without the slats of horizontal blinds. While pleated shades do not have the same energy efficient properties as cellular shades, they do have a similar visual appeal and are made to work in the same types of window openings.
Graber EvenPleat® and FashionPleat® Shades add depth and structure to traditional shades through evenly spaced, crisp folds of fabric. Available in many stunning textiles, from sheer and light-filtering to opaque, tailor these shades to your preference for privacy and light control. Both EvenPleat® and FashionPleat® shades are available with 1" pleats, and now EvenPleat® offers select fabrics with 2" pleats for your larger windows. The fabric of our pleated shades gives you flexibility in privacy and light control while the fold pattern stacks neatly at the top of the window when drawn so that the view is nearly unobstructed. The durable pleated shades are meant to be a beautiful and more affordable alternative to cellular shades while still providing multiple options in light and privacy control. Lighter colors and textures of sheer and semi-private pleated shades do allow some features to be visible from the outdoors. These colors and textures do, however, provide ideal ambiance for natural light and some of these pleated shades even come in softer textures like natural weaves and lace. Darker colors and patterns always block more light and generally give any room a darker look. Pleated shades are no exception and come in a variety of weaves and colors that help block light and provide dark accents to rooms. For a variety of fabrics that are gentle on your budget, pleated shades may be exactly what you are looking for.
