Honeycomb Shades - Cellular ShadesHoneycombs, also known as cellulars, provide a soft, warm feel to any room. They also greatly improve the energy efficiency of your home, making them an excellent eco-friendly choice. But there’s a lot more to them than that.
No matter the type of honeycomb window treatment you choose, you have a lot of options on how they operate. There is a lift system for every style and lifestyle. Here are your options:
Continuous Cord Loop – A continuous cord loop is great for raising and lowering large honeycomb window treatments. It helps keep it even and balanced. All treatments with a continuous cord loop will come with a cord tensioner already attached. You simply screw it into the wall and make sure the cord or metal chain is taut. When installed correctly, the cord tensioner eliminates many window covering cord dangers, making this type of lift system great if you have small children and pets in your home.
Cordless – If you prefer to avoid cords completely, go cordless. Cordless honeycombs are modern and clean, and they’re entirely child-safe. To lift and lower them, all you have to do is push up and pull down on the bottom rail. It really is that easy.
Motorization – To take the cordless lift system one step further, opt for motorized honeycombs. With a touch of a button, you can raise and lower them, making it perfect for hard-to-reach windows, if you have young children in the house, or if you or a loved one has mobility restrictions. Just like the cordless lift system, motorized honeycombs are sleek, modern, and have clean design lines.
Top Down/Bottom Up – One of the most unique lift systems we offer for our honeycombs is the top down/bottom up. You can lower them from the top so you get all that beautiful natural light coming through. And you can keep the bottom closed so you can retain your privacy. Or raise and lower however you’d like to create the perfect balance.
Cell Sizes and Styles
Cell sizes and styles vary by product, and because we have so many honeycomb window coverings available, you have a lot of options. The cell sizes range from as small as 3/8” to as big as 3/4”. Generally, the smaller the window, the smaller the cell size should be. However, that isn’t always the case.
When it comes to cell styles, you can choose from single cell or double cell. Honeycombs with single cells are great for narrow windowsills and large windows because they’re lightweight. The double cells offer the best insulation, saving you money on energy costs.

Light Filtering and Blackout Fabrics
One of the many great things about cellular window fashions is your choice of light filtering and blackout fabrics. Choose light filtering if you enjoy natural light coming through your windows. Light filtering honeycombs give your space a warm glow, letting in the perfect amount of sunlight.
Blackout honeycombs are perfect for bedrooms, media rooms, home theaters, and baby nurseries. If you’re looking for the best in energy efficiency, blackout honeycombs are it. Can’t decide between light filtering and blackout? Now you don’t have to. The ½” Day/Night Cordless Cellulars are the perfect solution. You get two products in one – light filtering and blackout. And switching between the two fabrics is simple.
Many of our honeycombs now have the Scotchgard Protector option available. This means these honeycombs are resistant to stains, spills, dirt, and grime. If something does get on them, simply rinse them in the sink and pat dry. And that’s it! Your honeycombs will stay looking as good as new.
