For money saving energy efficiency, improved view, and light control, cellular shades are a great choice for your windows. Learn more about the benefits of cell shades in this video.

Cellular shades are the most popular shades available for your windows for three reasons. They help you with improved energy efficiency to save you money, they stack high so they virtually disappear, and they provide full privacy. Some will even darken your room. Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, feature layers of air pockets in the shape of honeycombs that insulate against heat and cold, giving you superior energy efficiency and cost savings.

The amount of insulation is determined by the number of honeycomb cells and size of the pleats. The more cells, the better the insulation. Double cell layers generally insulate better than single cell, and larger pleats provide more insulation than smaller ones. 3/8 inch Double Cell shades are our customer's most popular choice. Another benefit you'll get with cellular shades is that they are virtually undetectable when fully raised. Because cellular shades compress to only a few inches when raised, your view to the outside will be clear and unobstructed; a great feature if you would prefer not to have a window covering at all during the day but need privacy at night.

Finally, cellular shades are extremely popular for their ability to provide complete privacy and light control. Virtually all cellular shades give you 100% privacy. Some let light in and some don't. Light filtering shades give you 100% privacy yet still allow natural light to gently filter through your window while insulating very efficiently. Room Darkening shades are perfect when you want additional light blockage in rooms such as media rooms, nurseries, or other bedrooms. For money saving energy efficiency, for improved view, and effective light control, cellular shades are a great choice.
