What are honeycomb or cellular shades?
A form of indoor blinds, honeycomb shades get their name from the distinct shape of the material, which creates separate geometric pleats that can resemble a honeycomb. Also known as cellular shades, since the pockets of material create individual cells or pockets, this design is functional as well as amazing looking.
The pleats in the shades that give them their geometric shape serve to trap air at the windows. This has an insulating effect that can help regulate the temperature in your home and even reduce your heating and cooling bills.
This energy efficient options for your window treatments can also provide a large degree of privacy with light filtering and opaque material options and no holes for light to filter in through. Options for top-down or bottom-up functionality give you control over how much light to let into a room. There are also options to motorise them using remote controls or smart phone apps.
Should I invest in honeycomb blinds for my home?
Honeycome shades are a very popular residential blind option among homeowners, and with good reason. They come in a variety of colours and material options, so you will be sure to find one that matches your design aesthetic. Homeowners love the flexibility and privacy that these shades offer, with the ability to control how much light enters the space through material selection as well as controlled operation. Many honeycomb shades come with layers upon layers of fabric to create the cellular shape and add style to the shades themselves.
If you are looking for blackout options, you can also find them in honeycomb blinds. You can choose from different light diffusion levels with room darkening and blackout options for any room’s unique needs.
If your concern in insulation, you can choose from a variety of insulating options including single, double, and triple cell construction. Not only will these protect against extremes in temperature, but they also help with noise reduction if you live in a busy or louder neighbourhood. They also come with different cell sizes, with smaller size cells working better to insulate smaller windows in a home.
Are honeycomb shades difficult to install?
Not in the least. In fact, they’re a compact system that is designed for easy installation. That’s not to say you shouldn’t rely on the experts for your installation, since they’ll be able to ensure a level mounting and proper functionality based on years of experience.
That said, cellular shades are typically installed as an inside mount within the frame of the window, although options are available for outside mounts as well. Just be sure to specify your needs when ordering. Mounting brackets are used to secure the shade to the window frame, with the proper number provided in your installation kit. With the mounting hardware in place, the head rail of the shades can simply snap into place. The shade can now be lowered and raised to ensure that everything works great.
