In Window Treatments

If you’re in the midst of shopping for a new window treatment solution, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the choices. You could go for a conventional drapery or blinds solution, but there are many newer alternatives that have been released and have since emerged as viable choices. In this blog, we’ll discuss honeycomb shades, and the benefits that have made them rise in popularity over the years. 

Energy Efficiency

If you are searching for a window treatment solution that keeps your energy bills as low as possible, look no further. The honeycomb pattern of honeycomb shades is specifically designed to trap hot or cold air from outside the home, effectively creating an insulative barrier between your space and the elements, keeping the temperature more pleasant year-round.

Complete Privacy Without Compromising Aesthetics

When fully closed, honeycomb shades can effectively absorb and deflect nearly all incoming light. This offers full privacy and room darkening capabilities in a tidy, sleek package that will leave your home looking uniform while feeling functional. 

Highly Customizable

Honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas can be tailored to fit any window and match any home’s aesthetic. Between our selection of cellular pleat sizes, opacities, colors, textures, and operating systems, the perfect custom solution awaits you! Once you’ve selected the ideal configuration, honeycomb shades can be adjusted to any windows, including vertical fixtures and skylights. 

An added silver lining of installing a custom window treatment is the fact that they are a relatively inexpensive home upgrade you can make before listing your home on the market. A brand-new set of honeycomb shades is sure to offer your home a more updated look and catch the eyes of potential buyers. 


Sound Dampening

Honeycomb shades improve a room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside sound. You can expect Duette Honeycomb shades to absorb up to 70% of sound energy, creating a more quiet, tranquil home environment than other window treatment alternatives can offer.
