What are Cellular Shades?

Cellular shades are also called honeycomb shades. The shade material is folded and creased to create honeycomb-shaped "cells". These airy layers reduce heat gain in the summer and help retain heat in the winter.

  • Honeycomb cells create an intermediate layer of insulation in your window to help save you money year-round.
  • When opened, honeycomb blinds fold up like an accordion into a compact stack, providing you with a clear view outside.
  • Cellular blinds can have a single column of cells (single cell cellular shades) or two staggered columns (called double cell shades).

Why you would want to buy Cellular Blinds:

Cellular shade blinds are one of the most versatile window treatments, so they are suited for almost any window, style, and purpose. Here are a few reasons why cellular blinds might be right for you:  

  • Honeycomb shades are excellent insulating shades and can reduce heating and cooling costs year-round.
  • Coordinate or contrast with your existing decor with white cellular shades as well as off-whites, neutrals and bold colors.
  • Lift styles for every need: cordless, continuous cord loop, motorized and top-down/bottom-up lift systems. Choose the best way to raise and lower your honeycomb shades.
  • Fabric available in either light filtering or blackout for just the right opacity and light control.
How to choose the best Cellular Shades for you:

Here are a few basic things to help you narrow down which cell shades are the best choice for you:  

  • Start by deciding if you want light filtering cellular shades or blackout cellular shades. Both provide privacy but do you want to block all the light or just some? Blackout is often best for bedrooms and nurseries, but both fabric options can work anywhere.
  • Next consider if you want single cell shades (bigger pleats look less busy, especially in larger windows) or double cell shades (smaller stacked cells provide even better insulation).
  • Then just pick the color and lift system that works best for you!
