Honeycomb Shades Have Better Insulation
Honeycomb shades, also called cellular shades are known as one of the most energy efficient shades available. Honeycomb shades are a lot like pleated shades. That means they are crisp shades with pleats. The pleats help to create a wall of air which acts as insulation. Honeycomb shades offer even more insulation.
1) they are shaped like a honeycomb creating an internal gap of air.
2) they are able to expand all the way to the edges and the top. Most blinds let heat transfer around the edges significantly.
Honeycomb shades can have single, double, or triple cells. The more cells the more the insulation and the higher the cost. The higher the cost, the more energy efficient. Therefore, the triple cells are going to have a higher upfront cost and a lower energy bill long term.
Honeycomb shades come in various colors and operating styles as well. So you can customize the design to something that works with your interior.
Finally honeycombs have the added benefit of being a great DIY blind. They’re designed for anyone to be able to install on their own. All you would need is a screwdriver, pencil, drill, and measuring tape.
