architella_opened_5Shopping for honeycomb shades? You have a lot of options! The honeycomb shade has come a long way since it was first developed decades ago. Now, you can select from not only a wide variety of colors and patterns, but many other options too. When you work with Blinds & Designs in San Francisco, we’ll help you narrow down your choices to make the decision easier.

Stop by our showroom in San Francisco or Tiburon, or call us to schedule a window treatment consultation. To help you select the best honeycomb shades, we’ll want to know:

  • Do you need vertical or horizontal application – opening side-to-side or up and down?
  • Is energy efficiency and UV protection an issue – extreme cold or heat or windows getting too much direct sunlight?
  • How do you want to operate your shades – cordless, motorization, top-down/bottom up?
  • What room(s) are the shades for — bedroom, living room, kitchen, den?
  • What kind of privacy are you looking for – light filtering or total darkness?
  • What type of window is this for – small window, double hung window, sliding glass door, specialty shape?

What Is a Honeycomb Shade?

Honeycomb shades are sometimes referred to as cellular 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 honeycomb design that traps air before it reaches your room, these shades are inherently energy efficient. Honeycomb 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 from sheer to complete blackout. Hunter Douglas has been the leader in providing the most energy efficient honeycomb shades since 1985, and offers the largest collection of honeycomb styles available on the market today.
