Pleated & cellular blinds and shades

Pleated blinds and cellular shades look quite similar. But cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are made up of different compartments. They were inspired by bees and the honeycomb structure acts as insulation to keep your room warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Set the mood in lighting with pleated blinds and cellular blinds

Roll down your cellular or pleated blinds as far as you need to enjoy privacy and avoid being disturbed by overpowering sunlight. While daylight filters through many pleated blinds and cellular blinds to adjust the mood by giving a room a soft glow, you can also opt for blackout cellular blinds or room darkening cellular blinds. While you can say fabric pleated shades and cellular shades are cut from the same cloth—100% durable recycled polyester with a stylish ruffled or accordion-like look—cellular shades go an extra step by providing window insulation through their smart design. While cellular and pleated blinds are available in a variety of sizes to fit large and small windows, pleated shades can be cut to meet any desired size.

Enjoy smart design that combines safety and convenience

Pleated shades pull down easily and stay open to the desired position by securing them in place with the included clips. Enjoy greater peace of mind since all IKEA blinds are completely cord free.

Insulate any room with honeycomb shades

The smart honeycomb structure of cellular blinds creates a layer of insulation, keeping your room warmer during the winter and cooler in the summer.
