Pleated shades can be perfect choice for formal update
Sometimes a room is begging for a classy update. Whether it is a dining room that is long past its prime, or a space that has no personality, adding a formal, elegant atmosphere can have a significant impact on the aesthetic of a house. The Evansville Courier & Press reports that there are several easy steps one can take to achieve this end.

One of the most important areas to consider is what colors are used. For a formal look, homeowners should incorporate traditional colors such as blues, greens and golds. Another route one can take is to paint the walls a neutral color, like gray or brown, but ensure that other colors are used in the accessories.

In addition to the colors used, the news outlet recommends focusing on the windows as well. While there are a number of different routes one can take, industry analysts suggest hanging pleated shades to include an effective, and subtle, decorative choice. Pleated shades are available in a number of neutral hues, so they will match with whatever color one chooses to use in their room.
