Sleek & Functional Honeycomb Shades
There are many popular styles of window treatments to select from, and it can seem overwhelming. At Shutter Guy serving Charleston, our clients are often interested in learning about the highly versatile Honeycomb Shades. Read on to learn more, and talk to a trained consultant to find out if this is the right choice for your home.
Number One in Energy Efficiency
Energy costs keep rising, and without proper window treatments, you can lose up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy out the window. That is why it is important to treat your windows as a “function” first and as a “decorative” treatment second. One of the best products on the market today is the honeycomb or cellular shade. The pockets trap the cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. The shade also provides privacy when lowered, giving the space a softer feeling. For aesthetics and energy efficiency, the honeycomb or cellular shade design is rated #1 for a variety of reasons.
- It’s available in 3/8”. ¾” and 1¼” single, double, or triple cell size for greater energy efficiency
- Honeycomb shades come in hundreds of colors and textures
- Opacities from sheer, semi-sheer, opaque, semi-opaque and finally blackout
- Operating options include retractable cord, cordless, and remote control for child and pet safety
- Backing is white to the outside providing great curb appeal and leaves the option of having different color shades on the inside
- And more…
Honeycomb Shades in Horizontal and Vertical Applications
Hunter Douglas, the leader in window fashions developed the first honeycomb shade called Duette® back in the 80s. Consumers loved the new window treatment, but were asking to have coordinating honeycomb shades for their sliding and patio doors. The answer… turn the honeycomb fabric vertical and create a single headrail track. That’s how Vertiglide™ was born. Vertiglide is also great as a room divider. Regardless of how big the opening is, when totally open, the stacking is only 5”.
