Pleated blinds are a fantastic alternative to venetian, roller or roman blinds with their own set of unique characteristics and benefits. They bring colour, shade and fresh design to your space while maintaining a subtle and slim look. They’re the perfect window covering for all rooms of the home, including conservatories, kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms.
Pleated blinds are different from other window covering alternatives. While venetian blinds are made of horizontal strips of material, pleated blinds are one piece of fabric. This is concertinaed to create a blind that folds up neatly when not in use, yet effectively covers the window when needed for shade or to control heat. Starlight Blinds offer these in 20mm pleats and cellular options.
Pleated blinds take up less space than many of the alternatives as the fabric is thin. The folds in the pleated design mean that it remains slim whether its rolled down or folded up. It makes these blinds a fantastic option for subtle light control without becoming a statement piece in the room. Because Starlight Blinds tailor make these as custom pleated blinds, you can choose any colour fabric you like to best suit your room. Pale, chalky or subtle-toned options are often the most popular as these match the slim, understated aesthetic of the blind’s design.
