By Steven M.

Honeycomb shades, acordion shades, cellular shades, the names all mean the same. A versatile shade, with more uses and funtions that most any other window covering. Cellular shades can help those who work overnight sleep well during the day, help with  a draft in your window, or simply help cut the glare down on that big screen T.V. One of todays most popular window treatments isnt just based on looks alone.

Light sleepers, or people who need to sleep during the day while the sun is out, love cellular shades. They are arguably the best solution to this problem and provider of a blackout feel to your room. The mylar liner used inside the shades, prevents any and all light from penetrating through the shade, allowing a night time appearance to any room at any time of the day. Lets say you dont need it dark but are tired of the glare you get while watching your favorite show, cellular shades can help there as well. By providing a dissipation of the suns rays and giving you a soft glow, as apposed to direct sun light, that glare is easily taken care of. Finally while the seasons and weather changes so do your needs as far the temperature of your home. A cellular shade will provide you warmth in the winter as well as keeping it cool in the summer by trapping air in the cells of the shade.

Cellular shades have a number of uses and functions. Wether its light control or temperature control, they can do it all. Its no wonder why they are so popular and widely used. Not only do they provide a modern look to most homes but the amount of function you get out of them makes them an excellent choice for any home or living space.

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 cells 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, 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.
