Adding Cellular Shades to Homes

Spring is officially here in our gorgeous state, and that can only mean one thing: summer is coming. With the days getting warmer and longer, you may find yourself daydreaming of pool days, beach weekends, and BBQs under a gorgeous summer sky. Of course, there is something else that summer brings with it that is not so great: high energy bills. Hot days are excellent for certain activities, but they can also make your home feel like an oven if you do not crank up that AC and simply deal with the impending bills. That is why Hunter Douglas has created a window treatment that not only keeps your home cool and energy bills low, but it also offers chic styles that you are sure to love. Read on to learn more about adding cellular shades to homes.

Cellular shades near Novato, California (CA), that reduce your energy bills.

How It Works

As crazy as it seems, cellular shades do not work via magic. Steeped in innovative craftsmanship, Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades are created to provide energy efficiency and insulation at each window in your home throughout the year. Since a high percentage of our home’s energy loss is through poorly insulated windows, proper insulation at the window is a must. The honeycomb design of these window treatments traps air within its pockets to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter without raising your energy bills, making them a great option for those who want an eco-friendlier option. This makes these shades an excellent addition to rooms that are often drafty or sunny.

Make It Unique to You

The beautiful thing about our homes is that they are uniquely ours. With that in mind, there is nothing worse than finding a window treatment that you love only to find out that it does not come in the size or shape that your home needs. Fortunately, Duette® Honeycomb Shades are available in a variety of cuts. From tricky skylights to beautiful arched windows, Duette® Honeycomb Shades are one of the most versatile options on the market. This allows you to cover as many windows in your home as possible, including traditional and non-traditional styles. With a variety of unique shapes, Duette® Honeycomb Shades are an excellent addition to your home.

Pick Your Favorite Styles

In addition to keeping your home cool, cellular shades also elevate your home’s style. With the largest selection of fabrics in the window treatment industry, Duette® Honeycomb Shades let you explore fun colors, various pleat sizes, multiple opacities, unique textures, and innovative operating systems. Whether you want a bold color like Farmhouse Red or something that will make operating your shades easier, Duette® Honeycomb Shades can be customized exactly to your liking.
