Cellular and Pleated Shades Provide Privacy to Your Home Without Sacrificing Views
If you own a home in the San Fernando Valley, you know the importance of finding dynamic window coverings. After all, your shades need to control the light and heat entering your home, maintain your privacy, and provide you with access to energetic city views. At Galaxy Draperies, we install cellular shades and pleated shades that can perform all of these functions, while also helping your windows make a stylish statement.
Cellular & Pleated Shades That Marry Style and Functionality
Pleated shades consist of a single piece of fabric, pressed into pleats that collapse when you draw the shade back from your window. Much like their pleated counterparts, cellular shades consist of pleated fabric that collapses when you draw your shades. However, cellular shades possess an additional fabric layer, sewn to the first in order to form collapsible fabric cells. Both pleated and cellular shades possess a tailored, sleek appearance that lends itself to almost any style of décor. That, coupled with the fact that they virtually disappear when the shade is opened, make cellular and pleated shades a popular window treatment choice amongst Los Angeles, California, homeowners.
Of course, anyone looking for privacy or light control knows that appearance isn’t everything when it comes to window treatments. Fortunately, our pleated and cellular shades come with a plethora of other benefits, including:
- Insulation ─ When closed, both pleated and cellular shades provide your interiors with protection from hot sunlight and a measure of insulation. However, the fabric cells in cellular shades go a step further by trapping air entering your home through the window. This helps you maintain a comfortable indoor temperature without overusing your air conditioner.
- Privacy Control ─ Sheer and semi-sheer fabrics allow you to maintain a degree of privacy when you close your cellular or pleated shades without sacrificing natural light. In contrast, semi-opaque and opaque fabrics will turn your pleated or cellular shades into effective privacy screens when closed.
- Light Control ─ You can open many types of pleated and cellular shades from either the top or the bottom of the window. If you wish to enjoy the views, pull your shade up. If, however, you wish to maintain your privacy while enjoying natural light, lower your shade part way from the top of the window.
