What are Cellular Shades?

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

  • These cells create an intermediate layer of insulation between your home’s interior and exterior, helping to save you money year-round.
  • When opened, honeycomb blinds fold up like an accordion into a compact stack, providing you with an obstruction-free view.
  • Cellular shades can have a single column of cells (single cell cellular shades) or two staggered columns (called double cell shades).

  • Great insulators – honeycomb shades can reduce heating and cooling costs year-round.  
  • Wide variety of colors including whites and off-whites, neutrals and bold colors to coordinate or contrast with your existing decor  
  • Lift and operating styles for every need: corded, cordless, motorized and top-down/bottom-up lift systems let you choose the best way to raise and lower your shade

How to shop Cellular Shades:

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

  • Start by deciding if you want light filtering 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 (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!
