Cellular shades are also known as honeycomb shades. These shades are made of a pleated fabric that is durable, functional and elegant-looking. The shades got their name because they are designed in such a way that when looked at from the side, it looks similar to a honeycomb shape.

Whether you are looking for new shades or want to replace existing shades, blinds or window treatments, cellular/honeycomb shades are an excellent choice. Not only do they come in hundreds of colors, but you can choose from fabrics that will either filter or block light that is coming into a room. They are easy to install and easy to clean. For versatility you can choose cellular/honeycomb shades that can be lowered from the top, or be raised up from the bottom. There are also various ways in which you can raise and lower your shades. There are cordless, continuous cord loop or motorized options that are available.

Cellular/honeycomb shades have a variety of cell and pleat sizes. There are single, double and triple celled cellular/honeycomb shades. The shades with the most cells have the better ability to insulate, and shades with the biggest pleats will give you the most insulation. Shades with the smallest pleats will give you a little less insulation. These shades will save you money as they will insulate your windows, keeping the cold of winter out, and they will filter out the heat of the hot summer sun. This makes them extremely energy efficient. You may wonder how it is that shades made of fabric, that have cellular or honeycomb shapes in them, can be so wonderful at insulating. It is all in the air. The thing is that these cells naturally fill with air, and that air layer between the fabric pieces causes an insulation.
