Pleated Shades: Why the Decorator's Choice Should Be Yours Too

With pleated shades, the room and the window will be adequately dressed making curtains and draperies completely unnecessary and giving the room a uniform and sleek finished look. Pleated shades are also a perfect choice for odd size or shaped windows in the home, such as bay windows or half windows. Because of color coordinated head and bottom rails, valances also become optional. Aside from the practicality and value that pleated shades provide, they also become an obvious choice when it comes to keeping the flow of a room's decor. As these types of shades are composed of one layer of fabric, it means that they can come in a variety of colors, patterns and textures. Homeowners wishing to give certain rooms of their house a sophisticated look can make it a reality with pleated shades that match their bedspread, sofa, chairs or other items in the room. Color coordinated hardware, such as the headrail and bottomrail also provide continuity to the color scheme.
