How to Select Cellular Shades

Hunter Douglas Cellular ShadesThe cellular shade has come a long way since it was first developed decades ago. Now, you have many options to make your cellular shade work for you. When you work with Window Products serving Connecticut, we’ll help you narrow down your choice to make the decision easier. Here’s what we’ll want to know:

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?

Armed with knowledge, we can help you find the right cellular solution to meet your needs and budget requirements.

What Is A Cellular Shade?

Cellular shades are sometimes referred to as honeycomb shades. The name comes from the shade’s unique construction which looks like a beehive. These accordion-style shades are constructed from soft fabrics in a variety of pleat sizes. Because of the distinctive cellular design that traps air before it reaches your room, these shades are inherently energy efficient. cellular shades are also excellent for soundproofing, light control, and specialty window shapes. Even better, cellular shades offer the largest opacity selection in a window treatment:

  • Sheer, semi-sheer
  • Semi-opaque, opaque
  • Room darkening, blackout
