Pleated window shades offer a softened look and fit any decor
Oct 13 2010
Pleated window shades have become a popular choice in window treatments in recent years because they have all the advantages of regular shades, but with added texture and attractiveness because they are made from fabric.
Pleated shades will fit many colors, materials and finishes in home decor.
IdeasForHomeDecorating.com reports that pleated shades stack tightly when raised to maximize an outdoor view and let in light, but can be adjusted to any length to minimize sunlight damage to furniture and home accessories. They provide the same privacy as regular shades, and come in a variety of materials, colors and finishes to match any home decorating scheme. Their popularity has also led to a wide variety of shapes as well for non-rectangular windows or triangular sections in sunrooms.
"They give a soft and modern effect to your windows. When you have windows which are small, difficult to curtain, or have other problems associated with them, you'll often find that pleated shades are a good solution," according to the website.
Home decorators should consider the continuity of styles and colors when choosing wall colors in conjunction with window treatments and other design features. Choosing neutral colors in floor coverings and on hallway walls offset bolder colors elsewhere in the home.
