Why are cellular shades a good choice for my home?


Honeycomb shades are made from two or more layers of fabric woven together to create three-dimensional, honeycomb-shaped cells that extend when open and stack when closed. This unique design offers a crisp look, diffuses light and provides excellent privacy, plus it reduces heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Many styles also come with cordless controls so you don’t have to worry about hanging cords being a danger for small children or pets.

Should I choose top-down/bottom-up shades?


Consider how much versatility you want with your cellular shades. Top-down/bottom-up shades allow you to raise your shades from the bottom and lower them from the top at the same time, while top-down-only allows you to raise the shade only from the sill. Though the top-down style can actually be larger in terms of area, top-down/bottom-up options allow you to have more control over light and privacy.

What kind of cell should I choose?


Single-, double- and triple-cell designs are available. Your decision should be based on aesthetic preference as well as control of light, privacy, sound and energy efficiency: triple-cell designs offer the best functionality for all four qualities, while single-cell offers the least.

How do I determine the right size of honeycomb blinds for my windows?


To determine what size cellular blinds you need, carefully measure the inside of your window frame from top to bottom and left to right, as well as the depth. Be sure to add 1½ to 3 inches on the sides, top and bottom for overlap.
