The Often Overlooked Cellular Blinds

by | Aug 9, 2012 | Shopping

Something you never say when somebody is heading out shopping is “oh yeah, pick me up some blinds too.” Cellular blinds are not something one picks out on a whim. The cellular shades on the market today come in a variety of designs and styles and instead of just keeping out the sun, can really invoke a fresh new look to your home. Shopping for blinds takes time and research, but can also be a lot of fun.

Cellular blinds are also called honeycomb shades, as it represents the shades’ unique design. Cellular shades are one of the most common types of window treatment found inside every home. Customers like this form of shade because they’re durable, easy to clean and extremely easy to operate.

The main reason this type of shade is so popular is due to the honeycomb design. These shades provide an extra layer of insulation by having air pockets that resemble honeycombs. These air pockets come in single row of cells to improve insulation over standard blinds.

Not many people think of blinds as an energy conserving decoration but they do so much more than keep the morning sun from entering a room. Shades, drapes, and blinds have thermal traits and are an unlikely source of energy preservation. When you have your blinds closed during the winter, the evil cold weather has another layer to go through as it attempts to suck the warmth from your home. On the contrary, in hot weather months the cool air will stay in the house instead of being absorbed outside.

Now that you’re hopefully feeling remorse about ignoring the importance of shades over the years, it’s time to pick out some cellular blinds for your home. Besides varying insulation levels, there are hundreds of choices in colors, styles, and light filtering options.
