What Are Cellular Shades?

Cellular shades are also known as honeycomb shades. They are called this due to their unique shape which is of many individual cells that closely resemble the iconic honeycomb found in nature. They are some of the most versatile and energy efficient shades on the market. 


What Benefits Do Cellular Or Honeycomb Shades Offer?

They offer so many benefits! They offer staggering heat and cold protection for your home thanks to their unique and genius design. Their cell or comb design traps air in many pockets which makes it more difficult for heat to transfer from one side of the shade to the other, which means that they can help you stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, blocking the cold air from the outside and the warm air from the outside respectively. 


The size of the cells can range from three eighths of an inch to two inches. Different sizes can help keep your rooms warmer or cooler depending on your preferences and local climate. 


What Color And Style Options Are There To Choose From?

There are many different color options to choose from! The color options are endless. You can stay neutral with grays or brown or get things like blue purple or even pink! You can go hog wild with selection and make it truly your own.


What Transparency Options Do You Offer?

There are several transparency options available as well. We offer four finishes, currently available for you to choose from: sheer, semi-sheer, light filtering, and blackout. Sheer and semi-sheer help to get your room as bright as possible during the daylight hours, however they offer the least amount of privacy protection due to their see-through nature. 


Light filtering finish is the best of both worlds. It allows for full privacy while also letting plenty of light to filter through so you can still keep your room bright and cozy. 


The blackout option is an excellent choice for room darkening. These contain mylar which prevents light from passing through the shade completely.
