Pleated or Honeycomb Shades?

Honeycomb ShadesWe have many customers here in the Southbury area who ask about pleated shades. Designed to give homeowners a lighter option to draperies while maintaining the softness of a fabric window covering, pleated shades have been popular for years. In the early 1980s, “energy efficiency” became the new buzzword in the window treatment industry.
