Pleated shades are similar to cellular shades in shade operation and design, but is only one layer of fabric. They come in different pleat sizes ranging from 1 to 2 inches and have many more fabrics with textures and patterns. The larger pleat styles go well with larger windows where you want less lines and folds. An additional benefit of the pleated shades are the stack of the fabric. When compared to cellular shades, pleated will take up less room in the window when the shade is all the way up.
A Smarter Home – Go Motorized
The Wave of the future is here. We use our smartphone to control just about everything in our lives, so why not our motorized window treatments. Our motorized blinds are now some of most affordable and versatile motorized blinds in the industry. The direct z wave technology allows our motorized blinds to easily connect to smart home hubs without the need of extra interfaces. This makes our smarthome shades more affordable and reliable. This also makes it easy to control all your smarthome devices from one app on your phone.
As safety and function become more in tune with window coverings, going cordless is a big step. The ease of operation, safety for pets and kids and sight of cords hanging all over the place are not the only reasons to go cordless. Cordless operation on cellular blinds can actually last longer and perform better then string operated shades. The internal cords have less wear and tear on them when compared to standard cord operated blinds. When you want a clean, smooth operation and no dangling cords, getting either cordless or motorized shades are the way to go.
Bottom Up / Top Down
Pleated shades, like cellular shades have the ability to go bottom up top down. Providing you with added functionality with light control and privacy.
