Pinch Pleat Curtains
Pinch pleat curtains are a window treatment choice that will never go out of style. The fixed, uniform pleats sewn evenly along the top of the drapery distributes the fullness of the fabric, giving the drapes a clean, sharp look. It’s one of the reasons that pinch pleat curtains are one of the most popular style choices for custom window treatments in New York, as well as one of the most requested styles at Alluring Window NYC.

For homes and offices in Manhattan, pinch pleated draperies can be a “green” choice as well as a decorative statement. By design, pinch pleat curtains offer enhanced insulation around windows, saving money and electricity. The extra space created by the pleats when the curtains are drawn also provide a buffer space between the window and your living area, keeping cold air out in the winter and the heat out during the summer. Choose curtains with a lining and you’ll get enhanced insulating benefits. Another nice plus is how easy they are to operate. Typically you use a simple cord or baton to draw them open and closed, but they can be motorized, as well.
