Cellular or honeycomb shades have been on the market for many years. They are available in many different colors and fabrics, and look great throughout the home. I like the softer look of cellular shades, and enjoy the complete privacy they can offer.
I personally love cellular shades because of their excellent insulation. The master bedroom in my home is south facing. Just below the second story window is a metal awning that extends over a patio below. In the summer, the heat comes off of that metal awning and absorbs right into my bedroom. Installing a new double cellular shade has helped keep that room much cooler in the recent weeks. It will also provide excellent insulation in the winter from the many windy winter storms we get here in Colorado.
Choosing cellular shades is just one small way to keep a little more green in our pockets. These type of window coverings will cut your heating and cooling costs all while looking great in your home!
