What are honeycomb blinds? Honeycomb blinds are also called “cellular shades” and they are one of the most modern window treatments available. They are called honeycomb blinds because of their unique shape. Unlike blinds with separated pieces or roller shades with one single piece of fabric, honeycomb blinds have pieces of fabric connecting them and stacking them throughout like an accordion, and it looks like a bee’s honeycomb between each section. The honeycomb shape gives it some interesting benefits.
The Many Benefits of Honeycomb Blinds
Honeycomb blinds have many benefits over other window treatments. They have a clean and modern look, and one of the biggest benefits of the design is that they have the ability to move to the exact spot on the window you want, even right in the middle of the window. If you want to let the maximum amount of light in, honeycomb shades can become very compact because the honeycomb shape is flexible and can be compressed. If you want more privacy, you can choose to block out the bottom part of the window for privacy while still letting light in. Or, you can move the shades throughout the day to block the strongest sun rays.
Honeycomb window shades are also easy to clean. Dust can sometimes build up inside the honeycomb cells, so you can use a can of compressed air to blow it out, and you can gently run a vacuum brush over the shades to get any extra dust off.
Save on Your Energy Bill
The honeycomb shape is also helpful with energy efficiency. The honeycomb shape traps air around your windows, so it keeps out the hot air in the summer and the cold air in the winter. This allows the shades to be energy efficient for the whole year. The ability to block out the sun where it’s strongest while also letting in light can help reduce your energy bills. If you want to have them be even more energy efficient, Blinds Bros. offers room darkening, light filtering, or sheer material.
The honeycomb shape can also help with noise reduction because it absorbs sound waves. So if you live in a noisy neighborhood or apartment building, cellular shades can help make your home quieter.
