Honey comb shades, also known as cellular shades, are a very popular window covering across the country. You’ve probably heard about them at this point but if you haven’t or maybe just want to know a little bit more, this is the place to learn all there is to know about them.
This type of shade is constructed with “honey comb” shaped cellsÂ which consist of a single or double layered design. This unique design is made to trap air in between the layers of fabric to provide excellent insulation properties. This intricate design allows you to provide your home with a high level of energy efficiency. This of course means that these shades can keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, saving you money on your electric bills. Due to the construction of these shades, if you live near a busy highway or have noisy neighbors,Â cellular shades may help to deflect some of that sound as well.
Depending on your needs and budget, there are a variety of thickness and styles of shades to choose from. If you are looking for a sure fire way to block out the sunlight in your bedroom, you will want to go with a blackout cellular opposed to a light filtering cellular which will allow light to filter through the fabric. There are also sheer options which will allow a lot of light and even a degree of visibility through the shade. Of course, there is always the option of making your cellular shade a Day/Night shade which can allow 2 types of fabrics onto ONE shade; creating the ability to be light filtering AND blackout.
Another great reason and perk of cellular shades are the mechanism options; you really have so many options to choose from – regular, cordless, top-down-bottom-up, motorized and as we mentioned previously, Day/Night shades. Cordless and motorized are great options for those families with small children.
When it comes to cellular shades, you can trust Blinds To Go to provide you with a wonderful and affordable selection. OH! and did we mention the lifetime warranty on the mechanism?
