Honeycomb Cellular Shades

Cellular Shades I Honeycomb Shades

Cellular shades (also known as cellular blinds or honeycomb blinds) are window coverings that block heat from entering a home or office. They work by holding trapped air inside the treatment and creating a barrier between the window surface and the room.

Honeycomb shades are called just that for a reason! These shades look like and are constructed like a honeycomb!

These shades can be constructed as single, double, or triple-cell shades. As your shade thickness increases, the R-value of the window treatments will rise. Cellular shades are made from soft paper or cloth-like materials. (Typically, spun lace and bonded polyester make these window treatments.) There are several types of operations, but cordless is safest when you have small children in your home.

The downfalls to these window treatments are that they are challenging to clean, they show their age over time, and due to the way they are challenging to construct, they may be more expensive than other options! If you don’t have good UV-resistant windows, you will likely see cord issues after about 3 years, especially when living in SWFL.

There are many advantages of cellular shades.

They are very energy efficient, providing a barrier between the hot sun and your cool home in the summer and vice versa in the winter. Cellular shades also insulate against sound, making them ideal for bedrooms and other quiet areas of the home.

Easy Installation Process

Installing cellular shades is a reasonably straightforward process you can complete in a few simple steps. The first step is identifying where you would like to install the shade. Using a tape measure, mark out the area on the window where you want to install the shade. Leave enough space around the window’s edges to secure the shade appropriately. Using a power drill, create pilot holes at each mark around the edge of the window. These pilot holes will make it easier to insert the screws that will secure the shade in place. In each pilot hole, put a screw and tighten it until it is snug. Once all screws are in place, your cellular shade should be securely installed and ready to use! We offer free installation when you purchase every shade, or we can also provide installation services for your already-bought shades!
