Adding Duette® Honeycomb Shades to Homes

As we continue through the spring months, summer gets closer and closer. While we look forward to those warm, sunny days, we may not be looking forward to the high energy bills that often follow. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas offers a shade that gives your windows a chic upgrade while preventing energy loss and reducing your home’s energy usage. The magic of Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades lies within their specially engineered honeycomb shape that traps air and creates a layer of insulation between the window and your home’s inside temperature. Offering superior energy efficiency, these custom window treatments keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer without raising your bills. Read on to learn about all of the reasons why you will love adding Duette® Honeycomb Shades to your home.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades Near Novato, California (CA), that reduce home energy bills and offer custom styles.

Adding Premium Designs

One of the benefits of adding Duette® Honeycomb Shades to your home is that you can enjoy the stunning designs offered by The Alustra® Collection of Duette. This collection features a thoughtfully curated suite of exclusive design-inspired fabrics, textures, colors and hardware created to meet the expectations of designers and consumers who want only the best when it comes to design. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are also designed to improve a room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside noise. In fact, these shades can absorb up to 70 percent of sound energy to create a quiet, tranquil atmosphere. This makes them perfect for rooms that face busy streets or sidewalks.

Adding Room Darkening

In addition to providing energy efficiency, noise control, and custom colors, Duette® Honeycomb Shades also offer pristine room-darkening capabilities. The available LightLock™ system is the first operating system of its kind to offer unparalleled darkness for rooms that need it most, including bedrooms, guest bedrooms, nurseries, media rooms, and more. The secret lies within the patent-pending side channel design, optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light. From blocking out street lamp lights to preventing sunshine from streaming in during your baby’s nap, the LightLock™ system is here to help anyone in your home get the best sleep ever.

Adding Vertical Styles

Another benefit of adding Duette® Honeycomb Shades to homes is that they are available in vertical styles. Since wide window expanses–such as sliding glass doors–need extra insulation, the Duette Vertiglide™ operating system is an excellent addition to your home. This system is designed for vertical applications and uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades, which means that your wide window expanses can enjoy the same energy efficient benefits as your traditionally shaped windows. Speaking of customization, you can also explore the widest selection of cellular pleat sizes, opacities, colors, textures and operating systems when it comes to Duette® Honeycomb Shades. These shades can also be specially cut to fit unique window shapes.
