What are Honeycomb Shades?
Honeycomb shades are also known as cellular shades or light-filtering shades. Similar to an accordion, these shades are made of fabric and stack like on top of each other when drawn, but when you look at their sides, they look similar to a honeycomb. These unique shades are best known for their tiny built-in air pockets, which increase their energy efficiency and maximize their light-filtering properties. They come in a variety of types of fabric, sizes, and colors, making them fully customizable; it is even possible to get honeycomb shades that are completely hypoallergenic, blocking out allergens like dust and pollen from your home. There are many reasons to love honeycomb shades; read on for their benefits.
Benefits of Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades are great for insulating your home, keeping it warm in winter and cool in summer. This is why they are so energy efficient; instead of wasting energy by allowing it to seep through your windows, honeycomb shades ensure that your heat or air conditioning stay indoors. This allows you to both reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your energy bills, making honeycomb shades a win-win window treatment.
Light and Sound Control
Another benefit of honeycomb shades is greater control of both light and sound. You can choose from a variety of fabrics for various levels of light-filtering. Some honeycomb shades range from slightly light-filtering to completely light-blocking, depending on which material you choose. This means that honeycomb shades are a good option whether you want to fill your dining room with soft natural sunlight or if you want to create a bedroom of total darkness while you sleep.
Additionally, honeycomb shades are excellent at blocking out sound. The air pockets in honeycomb shades absorb any noise from outside, ensuring that you don’t have to worry about any noise pollution in your home. Whether you live on a busy street with a lot of traffic or your neighbors like to throw parties, you can still find tranquility in your home.
If you are concerned about your privacy, whether due to large, open windows or nosy neighbors, honeycomb shades can do a lot to ease your mind. Honeycomb shades have long been used by photographers to have greater control over light, and this property can also aid you in ensuring privacy in your home. Your neighbors won’t even be able to see your silhouette through your new honeycomb shades, so you can rest assured that no one is able to peer into your windows and see anything.
Honeycomb shades come in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and types of fabric, allowing you to decorate your home to your specifications without worrying about your blinds sticking out like a sore thumb. You can benefit from honeycomb shades’ convenience, light control, and energy efficiency benefits without compromising on the elegance of your home decor. You are also able to install honeycomb shades that are vertical traversing, top-down bottom-up, or top down. Additionally, honeycomb shades are easy to seamlessly hide, as they create a small stack that can be obscured by a decorative valance if necessary.
Honeycomb shades are also an affordable window treatment. Not only do these window treatments save you money in your energy bills, they are relatively inexpensive to install. Depending on your customizations, you can save quite a bit of money opting for honeycomb shades instead of other alternatives.
