Pleated Perfection with Everhem

Pleats may seem like a minor detail, but let us assure you, they can drastically change the look and feel of your window treatments. First, let's dive into Drapery and the three types of Pleats Everhem offers. Box, Tailored and Pinch are the three pleat styles you have to choose from. While each are equally beautiful, you may be leaning towards one over the others to achieve a certain look.

Box: Box Pleat Drapery is sewn in a such a way that the actual pleats are on the back side of the Drapery. It has a structured and columnar form giving a space a modern and casual feel.

Tailored: Tailored Pleat Drapery is pinched at the very top, allowing each individual pleat to gradually widen from top to bottom. This transitional option is perfect for either contemporary or traditional spaces.

Pinch: Pinch Pleat Drapery is pinched about 3 inches down from the top of the drape creating a "bow-tie" look at the top before gradually widening out. This Pleat style truly speaks to the traditional leaning areas.

On top of the three Pleat styles we offer for Drapery, we also provide two Pleat styles for our Roman Shades: Flat and Pleated.

Flat: Flat Roman Shades are square across the bottom with no structured pleats for a clean and casual look. This pleat style is ideal for any space, it is our "best all around" offering.

Pleated: Pleated Roman Shades have structured pleats sewn into the fabric for a polished and traditional look. This pleat style offers a couple helpful functions, including, helping Blackout Lining stay structured and adding an interesting design element to an area.
