What are the most energy efficient blinds?While all blinds and window coverings provide some insulation when closed, by for the best insulation value is from our cellular honeycomb shades.
Honeycomb shades increase the R-value of your windows by “trapping” air in the individual cells. This trapped air helps keeps the heat or cold out depending on the time of year.

What blind/shade provides the best view?When you have a view that you don't want blocked by a window shades, there a couple of good options for your privacy needs without limiting your view. Cellular shades are an excellent choice for this reason. Honeycomb cellular shades close very tight to the top of your windows. Add in a looping control cord option on your window and you have the best option available for privacy and unimpeded views. Our soft sheer horizontals are another shade that is excellent for the same reasons as the cellular shades. While wood and faux wood blinds don't offer the same stacking tightness of the above mentioned shades, they can still offer a great view through the tilted open slats. Although your view will be somewhat blocked by the individual slats the view is still available to you.
How do I clean my blinds?Depending on the product you have chosen cleaning you blinds is simple and easy. A feather duster or a soft cloth will work well for dust and light dirt. It is okay to use a lightly moistened cloth to clean your blinds also. For deep cleaning Blinds Chalet recommends contacting a SONIC CLEANING company in your area.
