5 Reasons We Love Honeycomb Shades
1). ENERGY EFFICIENCY!!!
Honeycombs Shades are best known for their great energy efficiency. An easy explanation for why they are superior insulators is because they create a pocket in front of the window. Think of a double pane glass compared to a single pane glass. The pocket allows for warm air to be trapped and not transferred into the room, giving honeycomb shades a quality R-value. Cell shades also capture warm air from inside the home during cold months to prevent the cold from getting in as easy.
2). SOUND RESISTANCE
For some of the same reasons above, honeycomb shades are also one of the best options for sound control. The polyester material has great sound absorption for areas that are close to highway traffic or loud noises outside.
3). EASY OPERATION
Honeycomb shades have multiple lifting systems to fit any room or need for child safety. Cordless lift allows customers to operate the shades by hand and eliminates any hanging cords, a child safety must. Motorization is also a perfect option for child safety and hard to reach windows. For those that want a more cost effective approach – continuous cord, standard cord-lock, and retractable cords are the other options.
4). PLENTY OF DESIGN OPTIONS
There are many design options for honeycomb shades so there is an option for any customer. Cell shades come in a variety of colors, textures, and opacities. From sheer to blackout, they allow for as little or as much view-through as needed. Honeycombs have a variety of lifting systems, as mentioned above. You can even order honeycomb shades with a top-down-bottom-up feature, allowing for the shades to be lowered from the top, which keeps privacy below, but allows light to come in from above. Another great option for honeycomb shades is the ability to turn the product vertically on a track, a perfect use for sliding doors or floor to ceiling windows.
5). CLEAN AND SOFT LOOK
Honeycomb shades are primarily made from polyester so they give a soft look to any room. They coordinate very well with draperies and many people love the pleated look of the shades. Being that honeycomb shades stack like an accordion, they are a perfect option when someone wants the shades to ‘disappear’
