A softened, textured look comes with pleated window shades
Mar 9 2011
When home decorators are trying to decide what their décor style is, a good starting point is to focus on the fabrics and colors they like best in home furnishings.
Pleated shades can add texture and soften the look of a room with a lot of hard edges.
That's especially important when they decide to install new window treatments, which can easily become a focal point in a room with large windows. One popular choice in recent years has been pleated window shades that have all the advantages of regular shades, but also come in a wide variety of shapes that include 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 IdeasForHomeDecorating.com.
Pleated shades stack tightly when raised to maximize an outdoor view and let in light, but can be adjusted to any length to reduce sunlight damage to furniture. They provide the same privacy as regular shades, and come in a variety of materials, colors and finishes to match any home decorating scheme.
