Window treatment is one of the most important aspects of interior design. It should not only look good, but it should also be functional and efficient. When it comes to choosing the right window treatment for your home or office, it can be quite a challenge considering that there are a ton of possibilities available on the market and not all of them will work well with your interior design or offer the level of functionality you need. However, I find cellular window shades to be one of the most versatile window treatments up to date and for a number of reasons.

The structure of cellular window shades is what sets them apart from all the other window treatments. The hexagonal structure that resembles the honeycomb has been admired by ancient scholars and philosophers for thousands of years. This is one of the most stable naturally occurring structures that can be found in plants, animals, and human cells and it has found many uses in a wide range of industries.

One of the best features of cellular shades is the insulation they provide. Thanks to the honeycomb structure they trap air in the long open channels insulating the room from external temperatures. During the summer, they keep the room cool and during winter they keep it warm. This means that cellulars shades are energy efficient since you spend less energy to cool down or warm up the room.

Cellular shades also offer superior privacy and light control. They stack like an accordion and you can stack them both bottom up or top down. This way you can let natural light enter the room while enjoying your privacy. Additionally you can choose from a wide range of fabric for a variety of light control options. You can go for a semi-opaque light filtering fabric or a fabric that blocks most of the light for complete darkness.

The cordless operation option is a another great feature buyers of cellular window shades notice. This is the ultimate child and pet safety feature. No lifting cords means that children and pets cant get tangled in them.

Also, cellular shades are the perfect choice if you want to combine them with other window treatments such as curtains. They practically disappear when you stack them.

Finally, if you are worried that this type of shades might not go well with your interior design, you should know that cellular blinds come in a variety of colours and textures, meaning you will easily find the right tone that matches the style of your room.
