The pleated shades were almost purchased until I saw the samples during the actual peak sunny time and oohhhh.... yucky. What normally appears to be a nice ivory/creamy colour turned into a horrid yellow when the sunlight hit them head on! I'm glad that I waited and didn't rush into them! All four samples that I was considering did the same thing.
So now I'm considering these shades. They meet my criteria. Discrete headrail that blends with the window frame when the blinds are drawn. They disappear.... even when they're down apparently. I'm excited about these. I've ordered samples. It's a canadian company. It's almost like "tint" for your window that goes away when you pull up the shade.
Before window treatment....
After window treatment....
What do you girls think? Do you think that these would work in my space?
