Cellular shades are one of the most popular options in window treatments. These shades are made of small honeycomb-shaped compartments which insulate and provide noise reduction. Cellular shades can help make your home a more warm, comfortable and welcoming place. Here are five benefits of cellular shades that homeowners should consider:
1. Energy Efficiency
One of the best things about cellular shades is that they help keep your home insulated throughout the year. The small honeycomb-shaped compartments trap air inside, reducing the transfer of heat or cold from the outside and as a result, they help maintain a consistent temperature inside your home, reducing the need for air conditioning or heating. This reduction in energy consumption can lead to lower energy bills and a more sustainable home.
2. UV Protection
Cellular shades help filter out harmful UV rays which can cause fading in fabrics, furnishings and artwork. This feature is especially beneficial for rooms with large windows where there is a lot of exposure to sunlight.
3. Sound Insulation
Another benefit of cellular shades is their ability to reduce noise. The cells help absorb sound waves, lowering the level of noise that comes from the outside or internal noise from a room filled with hard surfaces. This feature can be especially useful if you live in a noisy neighborhood or near a busy street.
4. Easy to Clean
Most cellular shades are made from fabrics that are easy to clean and maintain, requiring only occasional wiping with a damp cloth or light vacuuming. This makes them an excellent choice for homeowners with busy lifestyles or those who have allergies or sensitivities to dust.
5. Stylish Design
Cellular shades come in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns, making it easy to find a style that matches the décor in your home. They can also be customized to fit any window size or shape, providing a seamless and sophisticated look for your home.
