Cellular blinds have become a very popular trend for modern window treatments. The honeycomb structure keeps your home energy efficient by reducing drafts and cold spots around windows. Cellular blinds also help to control light filtration to maintain a comfortable environment for you and your family. When considering cellular blinds, don’t simply think about the color as a decorative choice but keep in mind that different rooms in your home require varying degrees of opacity and light filtration.
Block the Light
How much would you pay for a restful night’s sleep? What if the cost was as little as a new set of cellular shades with blackout fabric? Studies have shown that completely blocking light can lead to a more restful sleep and more energy by day. They are a necessary choice for those who work at night and sleep by day. For bedrooms, especially with windows facing the street, cellular shades with blackout capacity block light as well as noise from the outside while providing extra privacy. Blackout shades are also an excellent choice for a media room or home theatre where minimal light is optimal.
Diffuse the Light
If you have south facing windows, you know that on a sunny day the light and heat that come through those windows can warm and light up the entire house and even make it too hot. In fact, new sustainable architectural designs use the south facing side of the house to collect solar energy. Installing semi-opaque cellular shades on your south facing windows or any window with high exposure will help insulate your home, diffuse harsh light, block UV rays and provide some privacy.
Let the Sunshine In
During the winter months with the heater turned up, it is more important than ever to keep the cold out and the heat in. You may also find yourself flocking to cozy spots near the windows in your home with the best light exposure. With sheer cellular shades, you can keep the cold at bay, the heating bills down and the perfect amount of light coming in to keep you cozy all winter. The sheer shades still block out the UV rays coming in. Sheer opacity is a perfect choice for windows in rooms where privacy is not a concern.
If you decided to embrace the trend of cellular shades, you are making an excellent decision. The stylish design, color variety and gentle light filtration are sure to make any room in your home the envy of the neighborhood. However, the true value of cellular shades are the way to reduce energy costs by filtering light and drafts while keeping UV rays out. Cellular shades are named for the tubular honeycomb shaped cells which create a pocket of air for insulation. Most cellular shades are made with a single layer of connected cells. With the growing demand for energy efficiency, a double layer of connected cells improve upon the already superior insulating and protective qualities of single cell shades.
If you are especially concerned with the energy efficiency of your home, the double cell shades are the way to go. The double layer cells provide an extra air pocket of insulation to keep warm air in and cold air out in the winter, and cool air in and warm air out in the summer. The cells also keep air from circulating through drafty spots around windows.
Solar Heat Gain
If you haven’t yet made the switch to energy efficient window blinds or shades in your home, you may be creating a greenhouse effect inside your home. Also called solar heat gain, the sun streams through the windows unobstructed and raises the temperature inside your home. Double cell shades help to more effectively filter out this radiating heat and light and keep the inside temperature in check.
Single cell shades and double cell shades are equally effective at completely blocking out ultraviolet light. The specially designed non-woven polyester fabrics absorb ultraviolet frequencies, which can damage skin as well as degrade pigments in furniture, painting, textiles, walls and other objects in your home. While most window glass has some UV protection, cellular shades (both single cell and double cell shades) filter out 99% of ultraviolet light.
Single cell pleats are available in a variety of sizes from 3/8″ to 3/4″ and larger. The variety in pleat sizes allows you to select the best pleat for the scale of your window and room. Larger pleats scale better to large rooms and windows and add a more dramatic feel to your windows. Smaller pleats don’t overwhelm small windows or spaces. Double cellular shades are typically available only in smaller pleat sizes such as 3/8″ or 1/2″.
Cellular blinds are available in vertical varieties for patio doors or large windows and special blinds made for skylights and other hard to reach windows. Adding a remote control system to your shades also makes it easier than ever to control your indoor environment.
Cordless roman shade
When equipping your baby’s nursery with window coverings, there are three factors to consider when choosing the right shade.
1) The first and most important factor is safety. If possible, install only cordless window coverings in the nursery. Most shades are available with a cordless option. The next best solution is a continuous cord loop which anchors permanently to the wall. You also want to place the crib on a wall with no windows. Cordless shades make nursery safety a breeze so that you have one less thing to worry about as a parent. The little one may not be able to reach the cord now, but they sure grow up fast, don’t they?
2) The second factor is light control. You should be able to darken the baby’s room so they can nap comfortably during the day. Room darkening shades will provide peace of mind and help your baby rest comfortably. If there is a light right outside the baby’s window at night, black out shades will block out the annoying light. Room darkening and black out shades will also provide needed privacy so no one can see into the baby’s room. A darker room provides a deeper sleep and more relaxing environment. You might even catch a nap in the nursery yourself. Who can pass up a nap when given the opportunity?
Cellular shades, available in black out fabrics, offer a second benefit as they are very insulating. The cell pockets in honeycomb shades trap cold, drafty air that comes in through the window to ensure a warm, cozy environment for your baby in the winter months. Similarly, honeycomb shades help keep a room cool in the summer by trapping unwanted warm or hot air that enters through the window. Temperature, light and privacy control in a baby’s nursery is critical.
3) The third factor is style. When determining the room’s style or theme, you will need to consider whether a gender neutral theme such as animals or a gender specific theme like fire trucks or fairies will work best for your baby’s room. If the walls are neutral, coordinate the color in the room with window coverings. Roller shades in black out or room darkening fabrics are available in bright colors and children’s prints. Room darkening roman shades offer a timeless and classic look. Cellular shades come in so many colors; it will be easy to find the right energy-efficient shade for your nursery.
Decorating your baby’s room is personal and fun. Adding the right window treatment completes the look.
With the rapidly and wildly rising energy costs, many people are eagerly looking to reduce the heating bill in any way that is feasible. One simple and effective way to reduce the cost of your next heating bill is to install cellular shades. Honeycomb blinds are very popular window treatment solutions and a key component in efficiently and effortlessly saving energy while helping to maintain the indoor temperature in your home or office.
Easy to install cellular blinds can help reduce your heating bills this winter and even your cooling bills next summer. In fact, out of all manufactured blinds, honeycomb blinds are by far the most energy efficient option. No other type of blind comes close to the energy efficiency of honeycomb-shaped blinds.
Here is how cellular shades work to save money on the heating bill:
Honeycomb blinds strategically trap air inside their unique “honeycomb” shaped pockets. These pockets become instant insulators that stop or slow down the transfer of heat between your windows and the rest of your home. When this air stays trapped within the cellular blinds, your heater kicks on less, thus, saving energy and decreasing your heating bill. Cellular shades with larger cell pockets provide better insulation as they can hold more air within the cells. Also, honeycomb blinds with additional layers provide even better insulation. Black out cellular fabrics provide optimal insulation.
Save Money All Year Long
Cellular blinds can also work wonders in the summer months. Just as they trap cold air in the winter, cellular blinds do the same exact thing with hot air in the summer. Whether you are running the air conditioning or heat, it doesn’t matter. Either way, cellular-shaped shades are going to save you money.
Stylish, Useful, and Affordable
Windows are often a source of thermal inefficiency in a home or office. Older windows can be drafty for a variety of reasons. Some are single pane windows and lack the additional sheet of glass which helps trap air and add insulation. Other windows use wood or metal frames and don’t seal very well, leaking thermal energy. Modern double and triple pane windows are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Cellular blinds help trap additional air like the additional panes of glass in modern windows. While cellular shades over single pane windows are not as efficient as double pane windows, cellular blinds are less expensive than installing new windows. Cellular blinds can be a worthwhile investment until you are able to replace your windows and are durable enough that you can hang them right back up after you do.
If you are looking for an easy, stylish way to slash the cost of your heating bill, look no further than honeycomb blinds. These highly attractive and affordable blinds are available in several different colors and styles to match your home décor. Honeycomb blinds save money and look good while doing it.
