Honeycomb shades are a very popular window shade for a variety of reason. They receive high marks for style, functionality and energy efficiency. Excellence in these areas and their lightweight performance materials makes honeycomb shades in Philadelphia an outstanding all-around shading. Honeycomb shades are also commonly referred to as “Cellular” and “Accordion” style shades.
Duette® Honeycombs shades mesh well with nearly any decorating style and interior architecture. The horizontal ridges add a subtle three dimensionality to windows and gently play with interior and exterior light sources. Honeycomb shades boast a wide array of texture and color choices, from the demure to the bold so they can have a starring role in your room or play a supporting role.
Honeycomb shades cover standard rectangle windows, skylights, archways, angled windows, transom windows, sidelights and circular windows with ease. It is unlikely to find a window that a honeycomb shade cannot cover. They can easily be upgraded to open from the top as well as bottom of the window for extra privacy, as well as be outfitted with remote controlled motors for difficult to reach windows. Multiple opacities of honeycomb fabrics can welcome diffused light into your home or block it entirely for restful slumber.
Energy efficiency is a hallmark of honeycomb shades. These temperature extremes makes heating and cooling a home a major expense as well use excess resources. Honeycomb shades’ air chambers, much like the honeybee hives they are named after are excellent insulators. These shades hold pockets of temperate air between the hot or icy air swirling outside your windows. This prevents temperature loss from drafts as well from conduction through the window glass itself. This unique characteristic makes them an “energy smart” and “eco –friendly” investment for homes and business both big and small.
