Takoy Windows by Design is so happy and excited to share with our valued neighbors the amazing innovation that is cellular shades. We’ve been in this business for a while and our favorite brand for window treatments is Hunter Douglas, because they combine style with function to a level that other brands can’t touch. That’s why we want to talk about the many benefits of their specially engineered cellular shades, the Duette® Honeycomb Shades, so you can decide if they’re the right option for your home and lifestyle.
Up to fifty percent of the energy loss in your home is lost through your windows. The Duette® Honeycomb Shades are designed specifically to address this problem! Their unique design, which is honeycomb shaped air pockets stitched into two layers of fabric, traps the air between your window and your home, keeping the outside temperature out and your inside comfortable and where you like it! This represents a huge reduction in energy loss and a drop in your energy bills that you are sure to notice and appreciate! In addition, these insulating air pockets also trap sound from outside of your home, up to seventy percent of it, in fact! This means that no matter what is going on outside, inside your home will always be quiet and tranquil for you and your loved ones.
The high-performance fabric that makes up these shades is designed to keep the pleats neat and crisp for years to come so they’ll always look like new! There are also a wide range of options for any interior design style. You can choose from a variety of colors, fabrics and textures, including those that vary in levels of opacity so you can decide how much outside light gets into your home, or vary it room by room! If you’re overwhelmed with the choices, you can always look at the thoughtfully curated Alustra® Collection, assembled specifically for Duette®, which has exclusive design inspired fabrics, colors, and hardware that will be sure to please any designer or tasteful consumer. New York designer, Rebecca Atwood, was asked to provide some exclusive designs for this line, and they’re all designed to look great with any Hunter Douglas window treatment!
The Duette® Honeycomb shades can be paired with the Hunter Douglas PowerView™ Automation option so that you can adjust the lighting in any room by speaking aloud to your home automation system or swiping a finger across the easy and intuitive PowerView app on your tablet or smartphone. Adjust the lighting from your chair so that you don’t even have to pause your movie in response to the changing daylight!
