5 Benefits of Cellular Shades


Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are a solid, practical choice for interior window coverings. They’re easily distinguished by the unique honeycomb pattern along the side of the shade and tend to be a standard choice for homes. Honeycomb shades are one of the most popular shades in the western suburbs of the Chicago-land area!


Below are some benefits to consider when installing cellular shades in your home.


Energy Efficiency: Perhaps the most valuable aspect of cellular shades is their ability to trap air between the layers of fabric. This insulation allows the shades to keep out warm air in the summer and cool air in the winter, saving you lots of money on heating or air conditioning.

Cordless Options: By simply lifting or pulling the honeycomb shade to your desired height, you can avoid the hassle and potential safety risk that comes with cords. You can choose to have your cellular shades installed top-down or bottom-up, depending on how much sunlight you want to let in. Motorization is another way to provide child safety and avoid injuries to young children and pets.

Customizable layers: Cellular shades are extremely versatile. If you want to allow a lot of light into a certain room, you can opt for sheer or translucent shades. Likewise, opaque honeycomb shades will let in some light, but also maintain your privacy.


Blackout Options: If you prefer to keep your bedroom or another part of your house dark, you may opt for blackout shades. This variety of cellular shades has a foil lining the inside of the honeycomb design, completely preventing light from entering the room. For summer months, this selection is great for people who like to sleep in.

Sound Absorption: In addition to keeping out light and air, cellular shades can be excellent at blocking out sound. For homes located near highways or urban areas, this feature may be particularly useful for keeping some peace and quiet in your home.
