Exploring a New Style for Your Home With Pleated Blinds

December 14, 2012

The winter season is a fantastic time to take a look at your window coverings and consider updating and replacing them.  Some of us are definitely guilty of keeping window coverings beyond their useful life or adding them to the list of “things to do” later.  But if you have been walking around your home and feeling like it needs a bit of a décor do-over, one of the best places to start is by changing your window coverings. It is a fast and very economical way to add colour, texture and new style to your favourite room.

Venetian blinds are by far the most popular window covering choice.  But if you are looking to make a change you can discover a variety of window blind styles that you may not have considered before.  Out with the old and in with the new!   You can really shake up your décor and make it interesting simply by changing the style of your window blind.

We want to introduce you to a window blind model that is starting to become very popular in the UK, the pleated blind.

The unique pleated blind has a number of advantages that make it an excellent choice for homes or flats. These blinds are incredibly unique and beautiful when installed and they are a growing choice for south facing rooms or conservatories.

Most of the fabrics used to create pleated blinds contain an aluminum reflective coating which hinders fading due to UV damage, and also repels UV rays from entering the room and damaging floor surfaces or furnishings.   This same engineered aluminum coating does an excellent job of blocking cold transference from the window glass while keeping the warmth inside.    An added benefit to installing a pleated blind is that can help you shave pounds off your home energy bill.

Here are just a few of the fabrics you can choose for the pleated blind.   The fabric choices are available in lined options or semi-transparent.  Click here to learn more about our pleated blinds and contact us if you would like to discuss the suitability of a pleated blind for your décor project.
