What is the difference between pleated and cellular shades?
The big difference is that, while honeycomb cellular shades have 2 or more layers that form compartments which trap air, a pleated shade has just one layer of material. Pleated shades, also called pleated blinds, do not have slats. They are one continuous layer of fabric. Many pleated shade fabrics are very sheer.
How do you choose cellular shade size?
If you have a medium-sized window and are looking for a cellular shade that reflects that size, go with 1/2″ or 9/16” cell sizes.
