Cellular shades are known by multiple names: cell shades, cellular shades, cellular blinds, honeycomb blinds, honeycomb shades and even cellular honeycomb shades and blinds. It can seem like a lot, but really all the nomenclature orbits around a singular feature in this advanced window treatment, the unique circular construction of its vanes. Cellular shades have horizontal vanes wrapped in fabric, which creates hollow pockets that run the entire length of the vanes. These pockets trap air, which has insulating properties. The cellular shape of the hollow vanes is reminiscent of the shape of a bee’s honeycomb, and hence the variety of classifications for this style of window covering using vernacular like honeycomb, cellular, or cellular shades and blinds. The distinctive construction of cellular shades is also what gives the window treatment its reputation as having the softness of Roman shades but the exactness of blinds in window treatments in San Francisco.
Cellular shades lead the way in energy efficiency for window treatments. Their cellular construction traps a layer of air over windows when the cellular shades are closed, which insulates the window. Up to 30% of energy transfer between a home’s interior and the outside world can happen through windows. By selecting insulating widow treatments like cellular shades homeowners can take control of energy loss in their home to improve the overall energy efficiency of the entire structure. Cellular shades can also deflect or permit natural sunlight, which means in turn deflecting or allowing free natural illumination and solar heat. These are two more tools that homeowners can use to increase the energy efficiency of their homes with honeycomb shades in San Francisco.
