Honeycomb Window Blinds (Readymade Cellular Shades)

Updated on June 22, 2017

Honeycomb window blinds also called accordion blinds or cellular shades are one of the latest and newly embraced ready made blinds of the twenty-first century.

These current and trendy' hard' window treatments are distinguished by a crisp and clean style and are designed to roll up and down a window in an accordion fashion.

They are great as a functional window treatment that regulates the amount of natural light that is allowed into any room, giving one of the most flexible ways of controlling light infiltration. The cellular construction of the soft and durable shades comes in rows of single, double, or triple honeycombs.

This is what makes honeycomb window blinds so energy efficient.

Honeycomb shades unique cellular design forms pockets of air that will insulate any window from heat and cold, making the interior temperature of the home more comfortable all year round. Additionally, they absorb sound which helps control unwanted noise from outside the home.

Honeycomb Window Blinds - 'Hard' Window Treatments

Cellular blinds always come as ready-made 'non-sewn window treatments'. They fall under the category of 'hard' window treatments; hardly surprising that many of today's homeowners and interior decorators prefer them as window dressings, sometimes combining them with 'soft' window treatments for a more appealing dramatic effect.

Due to the fact that these blinds are much more durable than most window treatments, they require less maintenance, unlike 'soft' window dressings like drapery and curtains.

The general theory behind cellular shades is that the larger the cell size, the better the insulation. This is because 'honeycomb cells' trap air.

This means that triple cell blinds, for instance, are more energy efficient than single cell blinds.

So, because of these qualities and advantages over other window treatments, though much more expensive than traditional blinds, honeycomb blinds are a popular choice for its insulating powers that keeps heating and cooling bills to a minimum.

Meaning . . . You save some money on energy costs.

      Great hub, I think I'm going to buy some of these for my windows. I recently took down some old drapes and discovered that our window in the living room is actually beautiful and big without the drapes. There is another window in the living room and two in the dining room which need updating. I think these honeycomb blinds will do the trick. Thank you very much!

      These are such cool blinds - I often think about getting them but we have so many windows to cover with all the sun we get it was cost prohibitive - but a girl can dream! We have plantation blinds instead. Great hub and good information!
