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.

Honeycomb pleated blinds - As stylish as a classic pleated blind but even more innovative.

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?
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.
