Cellular shades are the energy-saving, light-diffusing superstars of the window treatment world. Their very design creates an insulating buffer to keep cold air out in the winter and hot air out in the summer. It’s all in the genius of the honeycomb-like design that forms cells within the shades and gives them the names you know them by: cellular shades or honeycomb shades.
They’re impressed with the large selection we have at Alluring Window and come to us for cellular shades in Manhattan and the surrounding area.
Cell shades are a hybrid, almost a cross between traditional shades and blinds. We think you’ll find, however, that cellular shades are simple to operate. They’re lightweight and glide up and down easily with the pull of a cord, but lifting and lowering can be made even easier with the addition of the motorized option for ultimate control and effortless use.

Translucent, light-filtering and even room darkening options are available, and we can custom-make your cell shades to fit any window — including irregular and over-sized — to ensure a perfect fit.

Cut Energy Costs
Light filtering shades are also called honeycomb shades. These fabric shades stack like an accordion when you draw them but look like a honeycomb beehive when you turn them sideways. These shades are very energy efficient because of the built in air pockets. Of course, they also have great light filtering properties that allow you full privacy when you close them. If you have allergies, you can find shades made of polyester with hypoallergenic properties that block dust or other allergens.
Honeycomb shades are also great insulators as they keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This insulation is what helps keep the shades energy efficient. You do not have to use as much energy to cool or heat your home, so you are also saving your money. Furthermore, since you are using less energy, you are emitting less harmful substances into the environment. If you are also concerned about aesthetic qualities, you can choose from a variety of colors and have your shades custom made.
When your primary concern is privacy and blackout properties, you may want to look into cellular blinds. These blinds even come with side rails so that light does not get through. People such as photographers have long known the benefits of these blinds, but now more people are beginning to use them for different purposes. For instance, those who work third or overnight shifts may use the blinds to block out light as they sleep during the day. You can also find double honeycomb shades.
