Cellular shades or honeycomb shades offer beauty and style for just about any window. They are called honeycomb shades because each cell is a hexagon just like the cells in a honeycomb. This is an important aspect of this type of window shade because this attribute can help insulate your windows.
The honeycomb hexagons of a cellular shade trap a layer of air inside the shade. This layer of air inside these cells provide an insulating value to your windows. That means it can prevent heat gain in the summer months as well as heat loss during the winter. The R value for a 3/8 inch cellular shade is 4. That is the equivalent to having argon gas between two window panes.
Cellular shades are also quite versatile. You can use them wherever you have a South or West facing window due to their Insulative qualities. At the same time, because of the level of privacy and room darkening capability they provide, they are also a great blind to consider for bedrooms or wherever else you want additional privacy.
