The honeycomb cellular shades are produced by most major window covering manufacturers due to their quality and benefits. This is why it is important that you consider your options to find the highest quality shade that is available on the market.
When you begin to look for honeycomb cellular shades, you need to consider the shapes of the cells. Cells that are D-shaped are specifically designed to be able to hold the actual accordion shape much better. You can find a range of fabric options, as well, from point bond to spun lace. Spun lace is a much softer and heavier duty fabric than the point bond and as much as 40 percent more effective in providing insulation for the cold and heat than the point bond options. Another factor to consider is the fact that the more cells that a honeycomb shade has, the better insulated that it will be. For example, a shade will double cells will insulate better than one with single cells.
These shades are also available in a various filtration grades. Room darkening and blackout cellular shades are ideal for blocking any undesired light, while a light filtering cell shade or a translucent cell allows the light to enter your room during the day, while still offering privacy.
These types of shades are also available in a number of different color choices, and if you are trying to achieve a much more dramatic look then you can pair these shades with Roman Shades or drapes. The pleat sizes that are available with honeycomb shades vary from small to large.
