Insulating Fabric Cellular Shades
Also known as honeycomb shades, cellular shades are incredibly versatile window treatments. They are uniquely designed in that they are composed of “cells” which are honeycomb-shaped open air channels in between the shades. It’s pretty easy to see where their name comes from!
This feature makes cellular shades energy efficient, as air gets trapped in the cells, making it more difficult for it to pass through the shades. As a result, they help keep your home cool during the hotter months and warmer during colder months, minimizing the use of your air conditioning and heating systems. They are also made of energy smart insulating cellular fabrics.
There are several customizable features, so you can pick and choose exactly what you want: size of pleats, privacy and light-filtering, colour, material, and control options. For example, some people opt for cordless shades, a safety feature for curious young children and pets that love to get their hands and paws on everything.
Cellular Shades: Functionally Stylish
While custom cellular shades are not typically considered as the go-to option for those who want a fancy design or that extra “flair” for their space, they provide a clean and simple look. The main draw of these blinds is usually the level of functionality they offer.
Because the stack, or the space that a window dressing takes up when it is fully opened, of cellular shades is quite small, they take up minimal space around your windows. If you’re interested in their ability to virtually disappear when it’s appropriate, this option would be the perfect choice.
You can also choose cordless, dual purpose cellular shades that have a top sliding section and bottom sliding section. One section is the black-out blind, completely blocking light from coming into or out of your room. This is perfect for night time privacy.
The second part has the light-filtering privacy function that is made out of sheer material. When you want to see out of the window, all you need to do is slide both shades up with one simple and easy movement.
With so many cellular shades factors to consider, we will be there to help you decide if this dependable option is the right fit for your home or office building.
