How to Choose the Cell Size for Your Windows
With four cell sizes to choose from, you can find a CrystalPleat cellular shade that looks great in every size window of your project.
The smallest cell size is 1/2 inch and it is double celled, meaning it is twice as thick as a single cell window shade for extra energy savings in your smaller windows. This size works best for your smaller windows because the double cell size is also twice as heavy as the single cell type, which would be too heavy for windows that are anything other than small in size. Small cells would also look too busy in a large window and distract from other furnishings in a room to overwhelm you. You can choose between light filtering or blackout blinds in the 1/2 inch size. Smaller windows generally have more shallow sills and will require this size pleat to fit without looking too deep.
The 3/4 inch size pleats look good in medium windows. They are single cells so that they aren’t too heavy to operate easily and properly. You have the lightest filtering choices in this size of pleat with sheer fabrics, light-filtering fabrics, semi-sheer fabrics or blackout fabrics to darken bright areas and give you an energy-efficient building or commercial space.
The 3/8 inch size pleats work well in larger windows in a single cell design for ease of operation. You can choose from a sheer fabric, light filtering fabric or blackout fabric in this size. This size is actually about the most popular because they provide a great balance for all sizes of windows, without looking too overwhelming.
The 1 1/4 inch pleat size works best in very large windows in a commercial space. It is available in light filtering or blackout to choose your level of opacity. Larger pleats are great aesthetically because it brings refinement and sophistication to any larger window. These also make great use of the deeper windowsills often accompanied by larger windows to make use of all of that space.
