Cellular shades are a style that stands out, but stays within your budget. The shade contains insulated side channels that captures hot and cold air without ever touching your windows. They are most efficient in saving energy, and some can even qualify you for a federal tax credit.

The staff at Horizon can help you choose between soft, circular cells and more geometric honeycomb designs. Cellular shades are versatile, available in materials that filter light or darken the room. They are also available as Bottom-Up shades. Some designs come with retractable cord system, which is a safer option for children and pets.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS   Ask Tom  
   
Q:   I am looking for a shade that would help with insulating against cold and drafty windows. Would cellular shades be good for that?  
    Asked on 10/2/2014 by Kurt from Manhattan  
 
       
A:  

Cellular shades are made of pleated fabric with air pocket enclosed within the shade. The air inside acts as an insulator. However you may want to check if the draft is coming from the window frame or around the window. Sometimes because of weather conditions (hot and cold) windows may need chalking to seal small cracks. If the window itself is drafty where the glass meets the frame you may want to change the seal around it.

Cellular shades would help when cold temperature is transferred trough the glass (that is not insulating enough)

New technologies in construction of cellular shades by Hunter Douglas have ended up with new designs of multiple cells or cell within a cell to achieve more insulation.

To learn more I would recommend to stop by our showroom or set up a free consultation.

Q:   I am looking for blackout shade for the bedroom. Do cellular shades come in a blackout option?  
    Asked on 5/23/2013 by Helen from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   Cellular shades are available in light filtering or blackout fabrics.

They are perfect as blackout shades for a baby room or a bedroom since when  measured and installed correctly they would leave 1/8" gap on each side making the room completely dark.

Here is a sample of Blackout Hunter Douglas Applause Shade:
