Honeycomb shades, also called Cellular Blinds or honeycomb blinds, are named for the empty pockets of air that run parallel to their seams. In general, honeycomb shades resemble traditional pleated shades when viewed from the room. Unlike pleated shades, however, these shades are composed of at least two sheets of fabric; one facing the room and the other facing the outdoors. Honeycomb fabrics come in a variety of opacities and colors, giving you flexibility over the color used to accent your room.
The layers of honeycomb fabric are joined together so that when your shades are pulled down, pockets of air are created to help insulate the room. The “cells” in these blinds protect your room from heat loss in the winter and heat absorption in the summer. They also provide a barrier against both outside and inside noise. Blinds in honeycomb fabrics are very versatile.
Not all honeycomb shades are created equal. Not only do they come in a variety of colors and light filtering options, these blinds also vary in cell sizes, the number of cells, and insulating qualities. Cell sizes and cell numbers can affect the energy efficient properties as well as the thickness of your honeycomb blinds.
Energy efficiency is affected by cells as well as fabric weaves and thicknesses which play a large role in the insulating properties of your shades and honeycomb blinds and the overall look and feel of your window treatments.
In general, honeycomb blinds and shades are extremely durable, insulate the best of all window coverings, reduce noise and provide a sleek modern accent to any room. Get your FREE color swatches to help you select your new window coverings today!
