Pleated shades offer insulation and stylish texture. They come in a variety of colors, so they can complement any style and any décor.

These are very similar to pleated shades. They are also energy efficient and have the same type of exterior look. However, there is a major difference.

You can also choose between single or double cells, depending on how much insulation you want and how large of a window you’re covering.
Much like pleated and honeycomb shades, solar shades help block the harmful UV rays that often make it through other types of window shades. If you’re looking to reduce glare on your television or computer screen, solar shades are a fantastic option. You can reduce glare, but you don’t have to block your view to the outside. You really can have both. You can also choose between light filtering and blackout solar shades.
