Cellular shades, also known as cellular blinds or honeycomb blinds, are quite possibly the most versatile window covering for your Loundon County, Virginia home. Named for the empty pockets of air running parallel to the seams, cellular shades look like traditional pleated shades to the casual observer. But, unlike pleated shades, cellular shades use more than one sheet of fabric – one that faces the interior of the room and one that faces the exterior of the home – to create the cellular shade.
The multi-layered fabric provides additional light-filtering properties, in addition to providing additional energy savings. Through blocking heat from the sun in the summer months, and insulating the windows more efficiently in the winter months, you are likely to see a noticeable difference in your energy costs.
Also, when released to cover the window, the cellular shade opens the “pockets” of air between each of the seams and act as a sound barrier. This added benefit is not found in other types of window coverings making cellular shades essential in homes with elevated levels of exterior noise.
Created to fit any shape window, cellular shades are available in a variety of shades and colors. The variety of colors allows you complete control over the color used to accent your room, while also complementing the exterior of the home as well.
