If you own a home in the San Fernando Valley area, then you know the importance of finding dynamic window coverings. After all, your shades need to control the light and heat that enters 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.
Pleated shades consist of a single piece of fabric, pressed into pleats that collapse when you draw the shade back from your window. When selecting pleated shades, determining a pleat size that complements the dimensions of your windows can make all the difference. And when you partner with us, you can also choose your desired pleat, style, fabric, hardware, and lining, such as thermal or blackout.
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. This extra layer also has a cell design that looks like a honeycomb or an insulating pocket. What’s more, our cellular shades are available in a wide range of colors and semi-sheer, semi-opaque, and blackout options.
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. Our pleated and cellular shades come with a plethora of other benefits such as improved insulation and privacy, as well as light and motorization control.
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.
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.
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.
Our shades are also available with motorization options, which adds a modern touch to traditional window treatments. And with our motorized shades, you can control them via a Somfy remote or Alexa device. These window treatments eliminate the need for a cord, which can be a tangling hazard for children and pets. They are also perfect for difficult-to-reach windows.

"From scheduling our appointment to meeting with our designer, Bernadette, and the installer, Alfredo, we were met with professionalism and comforted in knowing we were dealing with people who knew what they were doing. Arrival times were well within the two-hour window. Bernadette shared her knowledge and expertise to help us choose the window treatments that best fit our needs and budget. We are so pleased with the final result and look forward to covering the rest of the window in our home."
"My wife and I recently moved and were in the market for new shades for our bathroom , living room and kitchen . We didn't really have a set vision so it was unbelievable when our designer Karen went through all the possibilities and showed us what would work well with the setup . Karen was not only very professional , she was personable and super knowledgeable about the products. I wish I could have her design the rest of our house ! Great product , great designer, great experience!"
"I would like to say that Galaxy Draperies was the best choice we've made. We recently purchased a new home and wanted to thank Bernadette for the amazing service she provided. I was referred to her by my sister, which also happened to purchase through you guys. Not only did Bernadette make me feel comfortable but it felt like I was working with family."
