Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades as they are known are one of the most popular options for blinds as they do a great job of repelling heat in the summer. Honeycomb shades are also preferable as they come in multiple styles, allowing you to let some sunlight into the home when you want it. Here are some facts about honeycomb shades that may help you make up your mind about choosing the right window coverings.
Say Goodbye to Cold Air
When you invest in honeycomb shades, you will be able to finally have the cold air disappear from your home. No more cold air blowing through the windows because the shades actually trap the cold air and prevent it from leaking into your home. Honeycomb shades do keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The cells in the honeycomb shades are designed to trap the air, allowing homeowners to be comfortable with the cool or warm air in the home.
Safety is Key
Safety is one of the most important elements when you are adding to the look and feel of your home. If you want to include new shades in your home, you need to look at the safety features. Honeycomb shades do come with or without the cords. A cordless blind or covering is the best option for safety.
Privacy and Security
We like honeycomb blinds as they do provide two options, a top-down bottom-up opening. What this means is you can open part of the blind and still have your privacy. If you do not want your neighbors looking into your home, you will love this feature as you can have the sun without other people looking into your home. We often use honeycomb coverings in bathrooms to cover the bottom half for privacy, while still enjoying the sunlight from the top half of the window.
