Cellular shades are a very popular window treatment and very affordable. They are alluring, adaptable, and look fantastic in any home.
Cellular shades are produced using a continuous fabric and they either move up from the bottom or down from the top. Cellular shades fold up along fresh pleats. Available in an assortment of pleat sizes, hues, and light control alternatives from sheer to complete blackout, they do all that, while remaining energy efficient because of the air pockets and cells.
Single cell versus double cell
Cellular shades are built with honeycomb air pockets and cells and will save you money on heating and cooling. These air pockets make a layer of protection between your window and your room’s surrounding temperature. Cellular shades are available in single cell (one air pocket), double cell (two air pockets), and even an Architella (three air pockets). The best option for your home depends upon the temperature extremes in your home and your budget. Takoy Windows by Design can help you select the right cellular shades for your home.
Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas feature small pockets that trap air and keep it from flowing freely through your windows. This insulation keeps your home more comfortable during any season and can even help you save money on your energy bills.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the original iteration of these window treatments, and they were created in response to the energy crisis of the 1970s. Because of their unique design, they can actually make your home more energy efficient and keep you from having to rely as heavily on your heating and cooling units.
The newest innovation of the Duette® Honeycomb Shades features LightLock™, a unique u-shaped side channel design that keeps as much light out of your home as possible. These effective blackout shades are perfect for bedrooms or nurseries to help you and your little ones fall asleep easier and stay asleep.
