Of the many different kinds of shade options available, honeycomb shades are one of the most interesting and effective choices for a window treatment design. These shades take a different approach to controlling light and heat within a room. As their name suggests, honeycomb shades are specially engineered with a unique honeycomb cell shape to trap air and create a layer of insulation between the window and the inside of the room. Here at Takoy Windows by Design, we offer the original, ultra-high-quality honeycomb shades from premium brand Hunter Douglas.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades
First invented by Hunter Douglas in 1985, Duette® Honeycomb Shades offer everything a traditional shade offers and more! Available in a huge range of styles, colors, fabrics, and dimensions, we have honeycomb shades for every kind of window! Duette® Honeycomb Shades have a huge range of advantages when compared to your traditional window shade. Their unique honeycomb-shaped design holds air in distinct cellular pockets that acts as insulation around the window and provides a combination of premium design, precise light and heat control, and superior energy efficiency to a space.
Hunter Douglas offers a huge array of rich, high-quality fabrics in a plethora of colors sure to bring a wonderful note of color to any room. The Alustra® Collection of Duette is a thoughtfully curated collection of exclusive designs created for those who want the utmost in style. Decades of professional design experience have gone into these shades, so they are certain to add class and color to any room.
Hunter Douglas offers the industry’s largest selection of fabrics and colors available alongside the highest quality fabrics and hardware. There are options for any building and any design choice. Honeycomb shades can even accommodate specialty-shaped windows and skylights. The fabrics are resistant to fading, even from the toughest sun, while the installation and operating hardware are constructed to match. Not only will your Duette honeycomb shades look amazing the day they are installed, but they will also look amazing for years to come!
Precise Light and Heat Control
Outside of looking good themselves, honeycomb shades are extremely effective at ensuring the light in your home is of the highest quality as well. With the largest selection of pleat sizes, opacities, textures, and operating systems available, no other shade option will allow you to have such precise control over the light in your home. If you want to block just the harshest rays of the sun or preserve the lovely golden color of the evening sun, low opacity and light-colored shades will let you curate the perfect experience. If you need a room as dark as possible, the new LightLock™ system from Duette is optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light, making it perfect for middle-of-the-day movies in any room!
Superior Energy Efficiency
Perhaps the greatest advantage of the Duette® Honeycomb Shades is their superior energy efficiency. Studies have shown that up to 30% of homes’ energy losses occur through their windows, making them a huge vector when saving money on your bills at the end of the month. Honeycomb shades trap air in pockets against the window to create a layer of insulation. This exceptional design makes Honeycomb shades the most energy-efficient form of shade on the market, so if you want to make sure that no more money goes flying out of your windows, Honeycomb shades are the ultimate option when it comes to efficiency. Hunter Douglas is even continuing to innovate on their original design; the new Duette Architella® features a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction that allows for an even greater level of efficiency.
In addition to insulating your rooms from heat, honeycomb shades are also excellent at absorbing sound. Hunter Douglas reports that their Duette Honeycomb shades absorb up to 70% of sound energy, so they are sure to help keep any room the way you want it, regardless of what is happening outside. We also offer honeycomb shades for all sorts of vertical operations too, with the Duette Vertiglide™ system. This system uses the same fabric as the horizontal Duette shades and can cover any kind of vertical window you have. One shade could be used to cover a sliding door, or even two shades could be split down the middle and opened automatically, either together or independently.
We here at Takoy Windows by Design believe that the right window covering can make all the difference when it comes to the look, feel, and use of a room.
