Cellular honeycomb shades give a soft, clean elegance while performing the very important role of providing energy conservation for your home. Stylish by themselves or paired with side panels or drapery for an even more luxe look, these shades can complete the look of any room!
The magic of cellular honeycomb shades is in their specially engineered honeycomb shape,
a unique construction that traps air and creates a layer of insulation between the window and a room’s inside temperature. These shades offer superior energy efficiency, helping to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
I partner with the finest industry brands, as well as working with local and independent manufacturers who can create the perfect look and best results for the best price!
Explore the stylish elegance and versatility of cellular honeycomb shades!
When looking for an attractive window covering that is also energy-efficient, cellular shades are an excellent option to consider. The design of these shades creates small cells between two layers of fabric. These cells, which resemble honeycombs, trap air to provide an additional layer of insulation at your window. Due to this unique design, cellular shades are often referred to as honeycomb shades. Cellular honeycomb shades are available in a variety of colors and styles.
Types of Cellular Honeycomb Shades
Before you begin to shop, learn about the three types of cellular shades for your windows: cordless, motorized, and top-down.Understanding the differences between these types of shades will help you decide which one will be ideal for your space, and I can show you exactly what works perfectly for your space and needs.
Cordless cellular shades are preferable for homes with small children or pets. Traditional window shades and blinds have long, dangling cords that are a potential strangulation threat for children and animals. Cordless cellular shades do not have any visible cords, and, therefore, don’t pose that safety risk.
Cellular shades instead feature an internal cord. When you push up or pull down on the rail at the base of cellular shades, they automatically raise and lower. They also include a locking system that keeps the shades in the position you place them until you lower or raise them again.
As the name suggests, motorized cellular shades are equipped with a motor that you can operate via remote control. This feature makes them the easiest and most convenient type of cellular shade since you’ll be able to conveniently raise or lower them without getting up from the couch, pulling a cord, or pushing and pulling on the base.
Some motorized shades are programmable to open or close at set times during the day. If you prefer to close the shades once it grows dark and open them again in the morning, you can easily program your motorized cellular shades to do so automatically. This feature can also come in handy if you have young children who take naps; you could program their shades to close at the beginning of naptime and open back up at the end of it.
Top-down shades, also called top-down/bottom-up shades, are designed to let in light without compromising your privacy. With this type of cellular shade, you can leave the bottom of the shade closed to cover most of the window and pull the top of the shade down to allow some natural light into your space.
If you prefer, you can also open top-down cellular shades like traditional shades. Leave the shade all the way up at the top of the window and raise the base, or let some light in from both the top and bottom of the shade at the same time. For this reason, top-down cellular shades are quite versatile.

“My 9-Step Process and Guarantee is Why I Know You'll Love Working with Me!”
Here’s a simple step-by-step process of how we’ll work together and what to expect:
We’ll start with a phone conversation to get acquainted and I can learn about your project. We’ll discuss you and your family’s lifestyle. And I’ll have you describe your home and current interior styling and colors.
I’ll ask if you’ve seen and liked any specific window treatment styles on TV, in magazines, online, or at a friend’s home. Knowing all of this helps me prepare and present the right options for our first meeting.
I’ll also ask if you have a budget in mind? This is very important and it helps me to determine the framework for my design expertise as it applies to your situation. It’s important to me to not waste your time and disappoint you. For example, if you want seven double sets of plantation shutters and your budget is $2,000, I can tell you upfront, that it’s not possible. But with that information, I can show you all the beautiful ways a $2,000 budget will also achieve your goals.
At the end of our initial phone conversation, I’ll schedule a meeting with you to present product suggestions and take rough measurements of the areas you want window treatments for.
Within 24-hours of our meeting, I’ll prepare a proposal for you to review and approve.
If you decide to move forward, I’ll need to collect a 50% deposit. I accept all major credit cards. And I can even offer 0% financing!
I’ll schedule a second visit to have my installer come to your home or business to take precise measurements. He will analyze the walls and surfaces to determine the best approach for your installation.
Once final measurements are taken, I’ll prepare a factory order and will request payment for the balance. I’ll also give you an estimated installation date.
We will do a seamless and professional installation with full clean-up – afterward, you won’t even know we were there! All you’ll need to do is enjoy the beauty of your spectacular new window treatments!
