08/01/2011 - After just purchasing our first home it was important to us to get the best quality cellular shades along with a great value. Blindster did just that!! They sent us quality cellulars for our whole home. We purchased 9 cellulars for just our downstairs half of our home windows and look forward to purchasing more! Thank you blindster!!

The size of the cells in a honeycomb shade vary from 3/8" to 3/4". Generally the larger the cell size the greater the insulating value although the difference is relatively small (less than .5 R-Value difference between 3/4" and 3/8" cell). Cell size is largely just a personal style preference.
Fabric Honeycomb Shades Offer Texture & Color Versatility for any Décor
Cellular shade fabrics are available in a wide variety of colors. Blindster Super Value Cordless Cellular Shades, available in single or double cell, are available in nine colors. Our Premium Light Filtering Cellular Shades, both single and double cell, are available in 29 and 42 colors respectively. Don't forget that it's easy to order free samples online, so you can see and feel the difference in selections before buying!
Single Cell or Double Cell: Energy Efficient Window Treatments Save You $$
Blindster offers cellular shades in both single cell and double cell fabrics. Double cell shades have two layers of honeycomb air cells for maximum insulation. Your choice depends on how much insulation you desire. For cold or extreme heat environments we recommend double cell as they will provide the highest level of insulation. Regardless of the honeycomb cellular shade you choose, all our cellular window shades provide insulation to help you save on heating and cooling bills.
Light Control: Light Filtering & Blackout Cellular Shades
When deciding on a window shade consider the opaqueness or amount of light blockage. Light filtering cellular shades provide privacy while allowing light in. If light blockage is desired blackout shades are your best choice. Blackout cellular shades are ideal for bedrooms, media rooms, or any room where a room darkening window covering is desired.
Cellular Shade Lift Type Options Offer Convenience & Safety
Lift type refers to how you will raise and lower your honeycomb cellular blinds. Blindster.com offers 4 different lift types for your cellular shade needs.
Cordless Cellular Shades: Cordless offers easy up and down operation and is an important safety consideration for homes with small children or pets. Cordless window treatments offer a clean, uncluttered look to your room.
Continuous Cord Loop: Another cellular window shade option is the continuous cord loop, offered on Blindster's "Premium" cell shades. The lift cord stays the same length, eliminating the extra cord hanging down when the shade is raised.
Top Down Bottom Up Cellular Shades: This popular option is available on all Blindster cellular shades except our Super Value Cordless Double Cell & Super Value Cordless Blackout Cellular Shades. The top down bottom up option allows you to let the window shade drop from the top, as well as lift from the bottom. This is a great way to maintain privacy while allowing light in and/or visibility out. Read more about Top Down Bottom Up shades.
Top Down Bottom Up Cordless Cellular Shades: Another popular option available on our Super Value Cordless Single Cell and all Premium Cellular shades except Premium Double Cell Blackout. Cordless means there are no lift cords; raise and lower the shade from the top down or bottom up by raising and lowering the metal headrail and bottom rail.
What are Cellular Blinds? Are they they same as Cellular Shades?
Yes. Technically speaking cellular shades are a window shade, not a window blind, although they are often called "cellular blinds". By definition window blinds have slats or vanes that tilt open and closed. Window shades are made with fabrics that fold, roll, or slide open. Horizontal cellular shades fold up when raised, collapsing like an accordion..
