Pleated Blinds: Not just for your conservatory
Pleated blinds, also known as ‘Plissé’ blinds, are often associated with conservatories. However, this concertina-style blind is actually a great blind that can be used in many other rooms in the home, as it offers style, elegance and sophistication amongst other practical purposes.
Pleated blinds allow natural light to flow into the room but without the annoyance of glare. They gently diffuse the light through the translucent cloth material, so you can still enjoy the warming glow from the sun.
The material of pleated blinds lends themselves perfectly to keeping rooms warmer during the winter months and cooler throughout the summer. This will help you keep your energy bills down, as well as keeping your rooms at a comfortable temperature.
Their slim and sleek nature allows them to compress down to a small, neat stack, so when the blinds are open, they take up less space at the top of the window, allowing you to enjoy a view that isn’t obscured. They can also be used in perfect fit frames for an even neater finish!
Pleated blinds are available in a wide range of colours, some subtle and others in more colourful shades. So depending on your own personal preferences and the room’s current interior, you can find something perfectly suited!
As an extremely flexible blind, they can be fitted to a whole range of surfaces, including windows (large or small), skylights, doors and roofs, regardless of shape. Plus, you can still open the window or door with the blinds in place, meaning you can take full advantage of the window sill space.
The pleated blind can be made cord-free to keep them entirely child and pet-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about leaving them unattended in a room with potentially dangerous blinds.
You could even opt for motorised blinds for total ease and effortlessness. Electrically powered blinds are often remote controlled (ideal if you’re having them installed on hard to reach areas, such as the roof), so you can even operate your blinds from the comfort of your own sofa!
Why not make your ideal home a reality and freshen up your home for the new year with some stylish pleated blinds? You can sit back, relax and enjoy the soft light that fills your room around you.
