Pleated ShadesCordless pleated shades are the perfect combination of simplistic beauty and modern functionality. While they’re similar to honeycombs, they also have their unique differences. Pleateds are made from a single layer of fabric folded into crisp pleats, whereas honeycombs are made from multiple layers. Cordless pleated window shades are also considered a more budget-friendly alternative to honeycombs. They are actually some of the most versatile shades on the market, providing great features and benefits and complementing every interior design style.
Options and Cordless Lift SystemsPleated blinds are completely customizable, and because of that, you have a lot of design options to choose from.
No-Holes Privacy – Pleated window blinds have little route holes through the fabric that allow the internal cords to lift and lower the shades. These route holes let in little pinpricks of light. If that bothers you, you can always upgrade to no-holes privacy. Instead of the cords coming through the fabric, they go through tabs on the back of the fabric.
Multiple Shades on One Headrail – If you have wide windows, use the multiple shades on one headrail option. The shades will work independently, but have a cohesive look because of the shared headrail. This ensures the shades aren’t too heavy, and it makes them easier to operate.
Cordless Lift System – All of our pleateds come standard with a cordless lift system. We believe you shouldn’t have to pay extra for peace of mind knowing your children are safe. Child safety comes standard at Select Blinds.
Cordless Top Down/Bottom Up – This lift system lets you lower from the top, letting in natural light while keeping the bottom closed for better privacy. This modern lift system is perfect for any style, from traditional to contemporary.
Energy EfficiencyPleated window blinds are great coverings for improving your home’s energy efficiency. The pleats trap unwanted air before it enters your home, keeping your home’s interior at a comfortable temperature all year long. Save money on energy costs with pleated shades. It’s that simple.
