Living here in New York, it would be redundant at this point to say that our weather can be unpredictable. Ranging from boiling hot in the summers to frigid cold in the winters, and pretty much everything in between, it can be difficult to keep abreast of the weather, and sometimes it feels like we spend all of our time running to and from the thermostat. If you’re anything like us, you’re tired of playing second fiddle to Mother Nature. If this sounds like you, then we’ve got an unlike solution: honeycomb shades. Don’t know what we’re talking about? Then keep reading to learn everything you need to know about choosing custom honeycomb shades for homes in Spring Valley, NY.
What Are Honeycomb Shades?
Becauseare so relatively new when compared to classic window coverings like blinds or plantation shutters, we can’t fault you if you’ve never heard of them or seen them before. Because of this, here is a brief explanation. Honeycomb shades, also known as cellular shades, are fabric window shades that are specially constructed to create small honeycomb-shaped pockets of air in between the layers of their fabric.
Hunter Douglas knows that a significant portion of your home’s heating and cooling is lost through your windows. In order to save you money, and keep your home more comfortable, honeycomb shades trap the air that would either seep in or out of your windows into these honeycomb cells, insulating your home, keeping the temperature more consistent, and ultimately saving you money on your energy bills!
What Do They Look Like?
While you would expect a window covering with this much advanced technology built into the design to look particularly scientific or sterile, honeycomb shades are actually a beautiful addition to your window, as well as being a beautiful addition to your pocketbook. Because of their cellular construction, honeycomb shades do have a fairly architectural design that looks quite modern, but because they are also available in a wide variety of premium fabrics, these futuristic shades are ultimately a breeze to incorporate into your preexisting home décor.
What Else Can They Do?
Because honeycomb shades’ cellular construction is ultimately a fundamental aspect of their design, honeycomb shades are a relatively flexible window treatment to customize. This means that you can find a honeycomb shade to suit any of your family’s needs: whether you need to outfit a wide window or sliding glass door with a vertical shade, you love the structured design of roman shades and want a honeycomb shade to match, or you want to bring your honeycomb shades even more into the future with motorization, Hunter Douglas and Rockland Window Coverings are here to help!
