Top Three Reasons to Buy Cellular Shades
Cellular window shades are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners look for ways to improve the appearance of their home while reducing energy costs. Honeycomb, or cellular blinds are some of the most energy efficient blinds on the market today. While there are many benefits to installing honeycomb or cellular window treatments, the following are ranked as the top three:
Honeycomb or cellular shades come in several different insulating thicknesses. Singular cellular blinds are more translucent and offer a fair amount of protection against the elements. However, double cellular blinds come in a variety of designs. Some offer a ‘sealed-in’ protection from tracks that run down the sides of the blinds and secure the blinds against the windows for further protection from drafts. Double cellular blinds are the ones that qualify for a federal tax credit for energy efficiency.
Cellular shades also come in a blackout variety that offers complete protection against light and sun. These blinds are ideal for computer rooms, where glare can cause eyestrain, bedrooms and home theater rooms. Once opened, cellular blinds fold up tightly, taking only minimal space at the top of windows, thus allowing almost complete views.
When considering new blinds for a home, cellular shades should be among the top of the list. There are even blinds that offer the look and luxury of roman shades and combine them with an insulating layer of honeycomb shades. Cellular window shades are so versatile in the manner in which they work. They insulate, they increase the visual element of the home, and they help absorb outside noise for a more peaceful home or work environment.
