Pleated Shades Combine Qualities of Roller & Cellular Shades
Pleated shades are perfect for those looking for a single-layer shade with more definition and texture than a roller shade but without the slats of horizontal blinds. The fabric of pleated shades gives you flexibility in light and privacy control while the accordion folds occupy very little space at the top of the window when raised.
Pleated blinds are similar to honeycomb cellular shades (also known as honeycomb or cellular shades or blinds). A pleated blind is a single layer of material, while a honeycomb blind, or cellular blind, is made up of two or more layers joined at the pleats to form 'cellular' (honeycomb) compartments that trap air, providing insulation.
Light & Privacy Considerations

08/29/2012 - This is the first time I have every purchased blinds online and it was a great success. I believe in complementing people on a job well done when it is deserved and you all deserve it. The fit was perfect and installation a breeze. I will keep ordering from you and recommend you to all my friends. Keep up the great work.

More About Pleated Shades
While pleated shades do not have the same energy efficient properties as cellular blinds, they do have a similar visual appeal and will fit in the same types of windows. Blindster's pleated shades a budget friendly alternative to cellular blinds providing similar light and privacy control at a lower price.
Our pleated shade fabric is a weaved, light filtering woven polyester. The classic 1" pleat size provides for ideal stacking when raised. Add an optional privacy liner for additional light blockage, insulation, and privacy.
Pleated Shade Lift Type Options Offer Convenience & Safety
The unique structure and versatility of pleated shades allows for multiple lift types for raising and lowering.
Continuous Cord Loop: The lift cord stays the same length eliminating the extra cord hanging down when the shade is raised. This is a good option on large windows or when the cordless option is not available.
Top Down/Bottom Up: This handy option allows you to let the window shade drop from the top, as well as rising from the bottom. This is a great way to maintain privacy while still allowing light to come into your room. Read more about Top Down Bottom Up shades.
