What Are Our Different Types Of Pleated Blinds?

You can select a pleated blind with a specialist feature that works best for your space. With Blinds Direct, your options are:

Plain pleated blinds - A classic option. Functional and durable, they are a fabulous addition to any space in the home.

Blackout pleated blinds - Improve sleep by blocking external light from entering the home. Therefore, they are great for bedrooms and living rooms alike, especially if you love to enjoy a movie in dark.

Dimout pleated blinds - Great for spaces where you want to gently filter the light and remove the glare of the sun. Home office spaces, kitchens and dinning rooms are the perfect place for these blinds.

Thermal pleated blinds - Keep your space warm and cosy during the colder months of the year. With better thermal efficiency, you'll also save money on energy!

Flame retardant pleated blinds - Our specially designed flame retardant pleated blinds are suitable for properties subject to specific fire regulations, kitchens, children's rooms and other rooms at greater risk of fire. They improve the safety of a space, add protection and look stylish too.

Honeycomb pleated blinds - As stylish as a classic pleated blind but even more innovative. Where classic pleated blinds are made from a single layer of fabric, honeycomb alternatives are made from two. Between the layers are a column of cells that trap air to better insulate the home saving the environment and money. Learn more in our Product Focus: Honeycomb Blinds blog.

Perfect fit pleated blinds - Easy to fit and offering a streamlined design, a perfect fit pleated blind clips easily into place and brings beauty into the home without any hassle. They are an effective solution for your windows and the perfect complement for UPVC windows, conservatories and doors.

How To Measure For Pleated Blinds

How To Measure For Pleated Blinds

Measuring a window for your new pleated blinds is as simple as 1,2,3. Below we've included some useful advice for both Recess and Exact options.

Inside Recess (RECESS SIZE) If your blind is to fit within the recess of your window, you'll need this measurement. Step one is to measure the drop and width from three positions and supply the smallest size. Afterwards, our team will make the required deductions to ensure the blind fits seamlessly within the window's recess.

Outside Recess (EXACT SIZE) For a blind that will sit outside of the window's recess, you'll need to provide an exact size measurement. Firstly, decide how much you'd like the blind to overlap the recess - on both sides, top and bottom - we recommend 7.5cm each as a minimum. Secondly, measure the width and drop in three positions and again, provide the smallest measurement. If you're uncertain about measuring for your blinds, you will benefit from our Surefit guarantee, for peace of mind.

Are Pleated Blinds Easy to Clean?

Are Pleated Blinds Easy to Clean?

Pleated blinds are easy to clean. You can use the upholstery brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner for regular cleaning. It is important to remember however to be delicate when doing so. Don't apply too much pressure to the pleats themselves to avoid any risk of ripping or wrinkling the fabric.

Otherwise, you can use a damp sponge if you need to remove a larger build up of dust. Remember to start from the top and work your way down.

Gently use warm water and a soft cloth to remove tougher marks. Lay the blind flat for this and pat the blind with a dry towel to help speed up the drying process.
