What kind of pleat style should you pick for your drapes?

Choosing pleat styles can be difficult, so we put together a quick quiz to help you decide what kind of pleats you should get!

Currently, on our Barn & Willow website, we offer four pleating styles: Soft Top, Two-Pinch Pleats, and Three-Pinch Pleats, and Euro Pleats. (If you're interested in other pleating styles, feel free to contact us!)

Take the quiz: 

Soft Top

Our Belgian Flax Linen Draperies in Mist Gray in the bedroom of sfgirlbybay.

Soft top draperies have no pleats. When paired with our Belgian linen fabrics, they offer a simple sophistication to your rooms.


Two-Pinch Pleats

Two-Pinch Pleats, otherwise known as double pleats. use less fabric their tradtional counterpart, the three-pinch pleat, while offering the same control when opening and closing the draperies.

Three-Pinch Pleats

Our Belgian Linen Draperies in Oyster with Three-Pinch Pleats in the home of Miss Mustard Seed.

Three-pinch pleats, also known as the three-finger pinch pleat, are the most common type of pleat. There are three pleats that are pinched together, and offer greater fullness to the draperies than the two-pinch option.

Euro Pleat

Euro pleats are pleats that are pinched at the top, but open up at the bottom, allowing the fabric to billow away to the floor. This is a modern rendition on the classic traditional pinch pleat, and look great in both moden and traditional rooms.
