November 8, 2017
Window treatments can offer a lot more than just keeping the sun out. Hunter Douglas Honeycomb Shades can make your home more efficient by conserving energy. Five design styles are offered for the honeycomb or cellular shades, so it’s possible to find something that suits your style. You have the ability to create shades exclusive to your design aesthetic by choosing from hundreds of fabrics in varying textures and colors. The fabric you select can also help manage the amount of light let in. These shades will not only be a stylish element, but will reduce your home’s energy bill thus saving you money.
Duette® is the original honeycomb shade style offered. It features a single- and double-cellular design. The cell size in the blinds is changeable, so it’s dependent on what you like. Duette® blinds can be created in either a vertical Vertiglide™ or horizontal alignment. Some fabric options also have the benefit of sound control. The noise absorbing material is able to keep distractions from the outside world away. This honeycomb shade style is capable of UV protection as well. Six different lifting systems are available, so you can find the operating system to fit your needs.
The Alustra® Collection of Duette® Architella® offers unique fabric options in order to craft a luxurious honeycomb shade. The window treatment can be fitted with metallic hardware finishes to give any room a refined, polished appearance. This design style is perfect for those looking for glamorous shades that will catch eyes.
The only design that utilizes a triple cell structure is Applause® Honeycomb shades. This design is able to trap airflow more efficiently. If mold, mildew, or bacteria is a concern, the Venue™ fabric is resistant to all three. This material features Microshield™ which can protect against impurities that cause odors. If you are looking for exceptional energy efficiency then the Applause Honeycomb shade is the right fit for you.
If you are looking for flashy cellular shades, the Pleated option is the perfect for you. These shades are available in bold colors and striking patterns.
