Privacy Liners

For even more privacy, upgrade your Pleated Shades with the addition of a privacy liner. Available in a wide-variety of complementary colors, privacy liners will diffuse the light, causing objects to appear as silhouettes from the outside.

Blackout Shades

Blackout Shades

An ideal solution for media rooms and bedrooms, Blackout Pleated Shades provide the highest level of light control and privacy. While blackout shades are not guaranteed to prevent all light from entering a room, they do provide maximum privacy.

Lift Controls

Cord Lift

Raise and lower pleated shades by pulling the cord at a slight angle. Move the cord to vertical to lock the shade in place. Secure cords to an anchor for increased safety.

Continuous Loop Lift

A looped cord raises and lowers the shade by using a pulley, making it easier to adjust larger shades. Pull the cord one direction to lower and the opposite direction to raise.

Cordless Lift

Adjust the height of your shade by pulling on the bottom rail for smooth, cord-free operation; certified Best for Kids™ for homes with children and pets.

Motorized Lift

Raise and lower your shade with the push of a button or integrate with a smart home system. Recommended as the safest option for child-friendly homes.

Shade Configurations



Standard Pleated Shades open from the bottom upwards. When in the fully raised position, pleated shades will be tightly stacked at the top of the window providing optimum natural light and exterior views.

Top Down / Bottom Up

Top Down / Bottom Up

Top Down Bottom Up Shades can be both lowered from the top and raised from the bottom. Lower your shades from the top to let light shine through the upper half of your windows, while keeping the bottom half covered for privacy. The shade can also be raised from the bottom up, functioning like a standard shade.

Perfect Vue™

Perfect Vue™

A Perfect Vue™ Shade combines your choice of a cellular shade fabric on the bottom of the shade with your choice of a pleated fabric on the top of the shade. This 2-in-1 window shade option offers flexible privacy and light control.

EvenPleat® Technology

Enjoy peak performance when you choose Pleated Shades custom engineered with EvenPleat® technology. EvenPleat® shades are available in 1” and 2” pleats and feature a back ladder design that evenly supports each of the pleats. This prevents the pleats from sagging,

“The best decision I've made for my new home thus far!”

I purchased shades (indoor and outdoor) as well as shutters and it’s the best decision I’ve made for my new home thus far. Ben knew what I wanted before I did and he was absolutely right about the color for my front door shutter. John installed all of them in record time with zero mess. The products are beautiful and the people are knowledgeable, polite, and efficient. Can’t get better than these guys!

“I highly recommend this smaller company over corporate giants!”

I had cellular blinds installed in a large front and they look incredible! Sales representative Ben Stevens was very knowledgeable and helpful. Installation specialist John Eastep came and did the installation in under 10 minutes. I highly recommend this smaller company over the corporate giants!

“The color, quality, & customer service was exceptional!”

We decided to use Acadia for the shades in our new home and absolutely loved them! The color, variety, quality, and customer service was exceptional! Eric is such a great consultant! He was very professional, efficient, and helpful when it came to selecting and ordering our shades! If we ever need to order shades again for a new home, we will be specifically asking for him! Highly recommend him and the company!

“We couldn't be happier!”

Great experience with Acadia from the beginning. With our Sales Consultant’s help, we finally decided on shades for our back windows, and we couldn’t be happier. They’re perfect and really help reduce the heat during the hot summer afternoons. We highly recommend!

“I’ve never felt more confident in a purchase!”

I wish I could call Acadia Shutters for everything I needed for our home. Eric Peace is a brilliant project manager, not just a salesmen. The install was flawless and I’ve never felt more confident in a purchase.

“Quality products at a very fair price!”

I have been truly impressed with Acadia Shutters. From my initial reach out to the final installation of multiple projects, the professionalism of this company has been apparent. They are quick to respond and offer quality products at a very fair price. The office staff, consultants, and installers are all extremely competent. My woven wood shades, cellular shades, and plantation shutters all look amazing! I highly recommend this company!

“I had such a great experience with this company!”

I’ve had the shades for a couple of weeks now and they are great! I had such a great experience with this company. I looked up a couple of companies in Atlanta since I was not from the area, but Acadia Shutters was by far the best price and the most professional. I definitely recommend!

“They were the by far the most reasonably priced!”

Acadia came highly recommended. After receiving other quotes, they were the by far the most reasonably priced. After a great consultation with Eric Peace, who was very knowledgeable, I decided to purchase. The installation was professional, thorough and very quick – kudos to Ben McMurray! These two gentlemen made my purchase easy and the blinds look great! Thank you!

“We will definitely be using Acadia in the future!”

After purchasing our first home my wife and I were completely lost when it came to many homeowner items, including blinds and shades. We were recommended Acadia Shutters & Blinds by a friend and could not have been happier. We worked with Eric, who visited our home and gave honest feedback on exactly what we needed. Eric’s sales consultant was not pushy or leading for an upsell, instead he provided us options within our price point and built an very affordable quote for our exact needs.

“Highly Recommend Acadia & their excellent team!”

We could not have made our decisions without the great assistance from Jamie. He made great suggestions, measured perfectly and communicated often between measurement and Install date (while following COVID protocol during the visit). The shutters were installed perfectly and look amazing! We loved them so much that we had Jamie come back out and measure the last 6 windows in the house and can’t wait to see the finished product

“Acadia's price was $9,000 less!”

We had an amazing experience working with Ben and John on our window treatments in our new-construction home. Both Ben and John were responsive, helpful, courteous an punctual. And the shutters an blinds look amazing. If you are on the fence about whether to get a quote from Acadia, let me tell you this: I had two companies submit estimates for our home. For the EXACT SAME PRODUCT, Acadia’s price was $9000 less. Yes, you read that correctly, $9000 less. We are so glad we went with Ben and John at Acadia – we couldn’t be happier.

“The quality is top notch!”

We recently installed Acadia plantation shutters in our new construction home. We requested quotes from three vendors. We wanted real wood, a lifetime warranty, and the ability to color match to our interior trim. Acadia was more than half of what a national retailer quoted us and comparable to another local retailer…The quality is top notch. I’m very happy with my new shutters and the service I received from Acadia.

“Best customer service from start to finish!”

Rarely do I leave reviews. Acadia deserves a 5 star rating. I have beautiful molding around my windows. I was very nervous but Ben came out, measured, and gave me some suggestions. A+ customer service. Anthony installed the shutters. He takes great pride in his work. I am 110% satisfied with Anthony’s work.  Acadia you nailed it, best customer service from start to finish!

“We love the black-out cellular shades!”

I highly recommend Acadia shutters! Their customer service and products are excellent! We love the black-out cellular shades in our daughters bedroom. She sleeps and so do we!

“Extremely pleased with our blinds!”

Ben was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Ben’s attention to detail was what definitely set them apart from the other companies we met with. The first thing I noticed was Ben took 3 measurements for the length and width for every window, whereas the other companies only took one measurement. Ben provided multiple options and was willing to work within our budget and wants. Ben was also great communicating throughout the process and our blinds were installed within the timeframe that was quoted. Would highly recommend doing business with Acadia and Ben!

“So thankful we chose Acadia!”

I had a wonderful experience with Acadia. My husband and I just bought a newly constructed house and had no blinds or shades anywhere in the house. Additionally, we have lots of windows, some of which are unique sizes. We had Creed come give us a consult a couple of weeks ago – he made amazing recommendations and really knew his stuff. John installed everything yesterday and we LOVE it. The are so minimalist and beautiful. So thankful we chose Acadia!

“We could not be happier with our new shutters!”

Amanda was wonderful to work with, giving suggestions and helping us decide what would work best for us. Michael did a great job installing the shutters. Would highly recommend Acadia Shutters. You won’t be disappointed!

“I would recommend them to anyone!”

Seldom have I had such a positive experience. The product is first quality and looks better than I even expected…The service is excellent. Ben Stephens was professional and helpful with my choice and John Estep installed all the blinds quickly and perfectly. If you are thinking about new window treatments, call these guys. I would recommend them to anyone!
