Cellular shades, sometimes also called honeycomb shades, are an easy, energy-saving way to beautify your home this fall. They come in a seemingly endless variety of styles and fabrics, and their unique, insulating design saves homeowners money on utility bills. Fredericksburg Window Decor carries the full line of Hunter Douglas Window Treatments and can help you narrow down the selections to find your favorite, choose the right styles and fabrics, and install them in your home.
How Do Cellular Shades Save Money?
Cellular window shades are not thick and heavy like some window coverings, but they still offer impressive insulating capabilities. They’re designed with an internal honeycomb structure that traps air against the window in honeycomb-shade pockets. This forms a barrier that keeps out the heat and cold. When the shade is raised, the honeycombs flatten until the fabric needs to be lowered, keeping these shades compact and functional at the same time.
That added insulation stabilizes room temperatures, so you don’t need to turn on your heat or air conditioning as often. These ingeniously designed shades also insulate rooms against noise – this can help you sleep more soundly or let you work without loud distractions from other offices.
Cellular Shades Control Light
You might think cellular shades are too lightweight to prevent bright light from coming inside, but they are available in many opacities. They can filter the sun’s rays to softly illuminate a room or be made with light-blocking fabrics. The choices for opacities, textures, and colors make cellular shades an incredibly versatile option for windows.
