What are Cellular Honeycomb Blinds?
A cellular honeycomb blind is a type of window shade made from one continuous piece of fabric that either rolls or folds up and down. They fold along crisp pleats and come in a variety of sizes, styles, and materials. Cellular blinds are often called honeycomb blinds as it has honeycomb-shaped air pockets that provide insulation and depth to your window shade.
Things to Consider When Purchasing Cellular Honeycomb Blinds
If you are interested in purchasing cellular honeycomb blinds for your home, you need to consider a few factors to maximise your purchase. Here are some of the things you should look into when thinking of buying cellular blinds for your home:
- Decide between single cell and double cell air pockets
As mentioned, the honeycomb shape of the cellular blinds’ air pockets provides a layer of insulation between your window and your room’s average temperature. Depending on where you live or where your room is located, you can opt for thicker insulation (double cell) or standard insulation (single cell).
If you are located in Canberra and you experience extreme weather conditions that necessitate upgraded insulation, a double cell version is better for you! However, these could be costlier than single cell honeycomb blinds. Take into mind your budget and insulation requirement when deciding between single and double cell air pockets.
- Determine the right cellular blind opacity type you want for your home
Cellular honeycomb blinds come in four opacity options: opaque, semi-opaque, sheer, and semi-sheer. If you want natural light to enter your room, sheer or semi-sheer opacities are better for you. However, if you want to limit the natural light’s access to your room, you’re better off with an opaque or semi-opaque opacity,
- What’s your cellular shade control preference?
Nowadays, cellular honeycomb blinds come in a variety of control options. If you prefer the traditional version, you can choose the top down bottom up cellular shade type. Another control preference you should look into is the cordless cellular shade — an option that eliminates the need for dangling cords that usually come with top down bottom up designs. If you want a version that you can control via a remote, you can also look into purchasing motorised cellular shades.
