If you are looking to upgrade your indoor shade systems, then pleated and cellular blinds make a stylish and practical solution for any home. If you want blinds that help create a relaxing ambience, whilst also providing privacy, insulation and light control, then read on to find out more about the many advantages of pleated and cellular blinds.

1. They look great

You wouldn’t choose blinds that don’t look good in your home!  Pleated blinds and cellular fabric blinds are neat and practical, and are available in a wide range of colours, tones and textures to suit your personal tastes – adding a sense of softness to your rooms.  Depending on your needs, you can choose free hanging, shaped or Perfect Fit blinds – pleated and cellular blinds can be made to fit any window.

2. Easy to operate and child friendly

Pleated and cellular blinds are easy to operate and extremely versatile – they can be operated in a number of ways and motorisation is a great option. There’s no need to worry about messy, dangling cables and cords that could injure children and pets.

3. Increased light control and privacy

To get the most versatile options, choose perfect fit.  When pulled closed and in a black out fabric, perfect fit blinds offer the best solution for privacy and for blocking out the vast majority of light.

4. Protection from UV and increased insulation

When the protective coating option is chosen, cellular and pleated blinds can also provide excellent protection against dangerous UV rays that can damage furniture, floor and wall surfaces. 

The protective coating reflects the UV rays, preventing them from entering the room, which helps to keep your home cool in the summer months.  When it’s cold outside, pleated and cellular blinds keep the heat inside your homes as they prevent the cold from window glass from entering the room.

As a result of their excellent UV protection and insulation properties, pleated and cellular blinds are very popular for use in conservatories.

5. Suitable for conservatory roofs

Given that they are so versatile in terms of shape, and provide high levels of UV protection and insulation, pleated blinds are an excellent choice for conservatory roofs.  Whilst conservatories can be extremely hot in the summer and cold in the winter, making them uncomfortable to use, pleated blinds on the windows and roof can make the environment far more comfortable all year round.

6. Easily stored

If you are concerned about storing pleated and cellular blinds when you want to see clearly through windows and let maximum light in, then the good news is that they can be drawn all the way up (or down – they can be positioned at the bottom of your windows and go bottom-up if you prefer). If you simply want to position blinds so that they let in light but protect furniture, then you can draw them part way.  Pleated and cellular blinds condense into a small compact area.

7. Durable and easy to clean

Pleated and cellular window blinds are highly durable and tested for a minimum 10 year lifespan. You can clean them with ease without worrying about causing damage.

There are a few ways that blinds can be cleaned, for example:

  • Use compressed air or an upholstery brush to effectively remove dust and debris that has settled on the blinds.
  • Use a damp sponge (not dripping wet) to gently rub along the blinds from top to bottom to remove dust and debris.
