Types of Shades and Blinds For Your Home and Office Space

Pleated Shades

Pleated Shades, favoured for their simplicity and modern appeal, are a popular choice for various window shapes and spaces. A gradient of colours, ranging from subtle neutrals to vibrant hues, characterizes these shades.

They effectively filter out light and harmful UV rays while allowing soft natural light to filter through. Cost-effective and suitable for tall windows, pleated shades offer a variety of colours and fabric options, including solids, textures, and patterns. While inherently light-filtering, room darkening can be achieved by adding a liner. The diverse designs and textures of pleated shades can enhance the charm of any space.

Sheer Shades

Sheer shades are designed for multi-functionality, providing the appearance of a shade when closed and light control similar to blinds. These shades feature delicate yet luxurious fabrics and offer versatile functions, making them a popular choice among customers.

Comprising two layers of fabric, including sheer material alternating with a transparent or opaque strip, sheer shades cater to both light filtering and room darkening needs.
