Cellular shades are a popular type of window covering also called honeycomb shades. Fabric is bonded together to form honeycomb shaped cells. They have a single, double or triple layered design that traps the air between the layers of the shade in individual cells to provide insulation. This creates an effective barrier between the window and the room and helps to prevent temperature transference. These are available in an array of fabrics and colors allowing you to customize your window treatments. Determine your needs based on color, opacity level, energy efficiency level and size.
The honeycomb design provides a high level of energy efficiency and sound absorption. Cellular shades keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer and save money on your electric bill.
Single cell cellular shades have one row/layer of cells. They provide some amount of insulation but not as much as double or triple layered shades. They are better suited for spaces where resistance to heat and cold is not a priority. Because they have only one layer, they have a smaller profile and work nicely for doors.
Double cell cellular shades have two layers of cells. They provide more insulation and therefore better resistance to sounds and temperature transference.
Triple cell cellular shades have three layers of cells. They are the best option for locations in extreme conditions with freezing or scorching temperatures. They offer maximum insulation for temperature control and noise reduction. They are thicker and heavier than single or double layered so the size and lift options may be limited.

Cellular shades are available in a variety of opacity levels, including sheer, light filtering, room darkening and blackout. They allow in the amount of light you prefer while maintaining your privacy. Light filtering cellular shades are great for almost any living space in the home.
