As the name “pinch pleat” suggests, the top of these curtains are accented with tightly pinched and uniform pleats. These pleats are spaced evenly which helps control the fullness of the window treatment and are weighted at the bottom of the seams to create a nice tailored look.

Pinch pleat drapes draw fabric together into a bunch at the top. The reason these pinch pleated curtains are so popular and common is that they are a timeless, cost-effective solution that has the potential to fit any window and style of home decor.

Usually hung using pin hooks, pinch pleat curtains can be attached to tracks, traverse rods, or other decorative hardware.

Alternatives to Pinch Pleat Drapes by NY City Blinds

If you’re looking for something different (as pinch pleat drapes can be pretty common), pencil pleat drapes are a great alternative. Their style is timeless and will never go out of style. They’re called pencil pleat curtains because they look like a row of pencils. Another good choice would be eyelet curtains, which have metal eye holes threaded on a pole. This is a bit more modern looking and has broad, standardized uniform pleats from top to bottom.
