Blinds or roller blinds? Choosing curtains for our apartments is quite a challenge! What if it turned out that you do not have to choose at all? Pleated blinds are a combination of blinds and roller blinds. They provide us with a lot of freedom of action. Its distinctive accordion shape makes it possible to move them both up and down. At the same time, we can cover only half of the window, thanks to which we can protect ourselves from outside observers and let the light into our interior.
Pleats — why are they worth it?
When arranging our interiors we usually care mainly about aesthetics and comfort. Of course, each of us has different tastes: some prefer Scandinavian style interiors, while others feel a faster heartbeat at the sight of vintage-style apartments. Accessories play a huge role in terms of what character our interior will gain. The choice of a solution which will be placed on our windows and become the guardian of our privacy as well as the regulator of light intensity in the room is not at all obvious. The first battle is usually fought between blinds and roller blinds. If this choice turns out to be too hard for us — there is nothing to be worried about! Pleats give us almost unlimited arrangement possibilities. Many installation options allow for the use of pleats in even the most untypical interiors: they will work well on roof windows, windows with triangular shapes, and even on trapezoidal shutters. Pleats will therefore be a perfect complement to modern interiors, as well as rooms decorated in traditional style. Designers like to recommend pleated blinds to their clients, because it is a timeless and reliable solution.
Pleated blinds – functionality and aesthetics
Pleats do not limit us in any way, on the contrary — they create a lot of possibilities. On the one hand, they are as neutral as Switzerland, but on the other hand we can use them to create unique variations with a truly wild imagination. But leaving aside the geographical comparisons: pleats are the only blinds that allow us to cover a selected part of the window. We want to enjoy a beautiful, sunny day, but we do not necessarily like the neighbour inspecting our plate from his garden? Nothing simpler! We move the pleat only from above and it is we who reign over the table. Pleats combine functionality and aesthetics. Do we care about thermal insulation? Pleated blind will give warmth to our interior on cold days, and provide us with desired coolness on hot afternoons. A wide selection of pleated fabrics makes it easy to choose a pleated blind ‘tailored to fit’ our interior. Their unquestionable advantage is the ease with which we can keep them clean — the fabrics are impregnated, thanks to which we can quickly remove any dirt.
Pleated blinds can easily match even the most avant-garde interior. They are a beautiful addition and complement the decor of the apartment, but above all, they fulfil their function very well. Pleats are a timeless solution that will stay with us for many years.
