Which Honeycomb Shades are Right for You?

Honeycomb Shades with LiteRiseWhat Are Honeycomb Shades?

Honeycomb shades are a popular window treatment choice first introduced by Hunter Douglas a few decades ago. The name comes from the shade’s unique construction, which is similar to a honeycomb. Also called cellular shades, honeycomb shades are constructed from soft fabrics in a variety of pleat sizes. Honeycomb shades stop outside air from entering your home, improving energy efficiency. Honeycomb shades are also excellent for soundproofing, light control, and specialty window shapes. Even better, honeycomb shades offer the largest opacity selection in a window treatment. Choose the opacity level that works for you, including sheer, semi-sheer, semi-opaque, opaque, room-darkening and blackout.

How to Select the Best Honeycomb Shades

At Windo Vango serving the Baltimore area, we carry a wide variety of Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades. With so many options, it’s sometimes hard to select the best honeycomb shades. Our professional window treatment consultants will help you narrow down your choices to find the perfect honeycomb shades for your windows. These are the primary factors to consider when selecting honeycomb shades include:

1. What room(s) are the shades for — bedroom, living room, kitchen, den?
2. What kind of privacy are you looking for — light filtering or total darkness?
3. What type of window is this for — small window, double hung window, sliding glass door, specialty shape?
4. Do you need vertical or horizontal application – opening side-to-side or up and down?
5. Is energy efficiency and UV protection an issue – extreme cold or heat or windows getting too much direct sunlight?
6. How do you want to operate your shades – cordless, motorization, top-down/bottom up?
