Everything about pleated shades speaks simplicity, from the materials to the installation. Because pleated shades are made of an entire sheet of material, it blocks the view from both sides of the window, which makes pleated shades great for lower level windows that look out at busy sidewalks or streets. Some models of pleated shades even offer a ‘top down/bottom up' feature that allows for the shades to be lowered from the top as well as drawn from the bottom. This allows for natural light to come into the room while the height of the shades keeps prying eyes out! They come in a variety of colors to match your home's decor and the fabrics are soft, yet durable.
