Cellular Shades: the Best in Form and Function

Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are the some of the most functional and modern shades on the market today. Here at Budget Blinds of Saskatoon, Kindersley, Swift Current, Moose Jaw and area, our goal is always to serve you well in 4 main areas: Function, Beauty, Budget, and Safety. Let’s discuss this style according to our four goals.

  • Function: Cellular shades are HIGHLY functional – perhaps even the most functional style of shade that we sell.

For one, they have an actual R-value to them which means they are amazing insulators. They will improve your home’s energy efficiency dramatically which is so important in the heat of a Saskatchewan summer or the chill of winter.

Honeycomb shades are also experts at providing privacy while still letting light in. This is due to the top-down feature that is available on these shades. This feature allows you to bring the center rail down while the shade is in the closed position allowing you to see out above the shade and let some light in while keeping privacy in your home.

Another amazing feature of cellular shades is their ability to block light. They have the least amount of gap between the edge of the headrail and the fabric, therefore they are great at darkening a room. Room-darkening honeycomb shades also have a foil or mylar lining inside of the cells which blocks light from entering the room.

  • Beauty: cellular shades come in a wide array of colours and options. There are multiple cell sizes ranging from 3/8” to 2”. The coordinating headrails can be ordered in a coordinating metal, fabric-wrapped or even wood. Their projection is narrow compared to other styles so they are well-suited to having cornices and valances placed over them. And when you want them to blend in and simply be functional, they absolutely can – just choose a neutral colour and you’re good to go!
  •  Budget: due to the many options available with honeycomb shades, there is almost always a way to match your budget! Cellular shades are some of the most affordable shades on the market, and we can sometimes even offer you free upgrades on them. Call us to find out more.
  • Safety: your kids and pets will be safer than ever when you choose the cordless feature on cellular shades. This means NO CORDS dangling from the shade whatsoever! We can also now automate honeycomb shades – including the top-down bottom-up feature. Thanks to advancements in manufacturing and technology on this style of shade, peace-of-mind is now available to everyone.

The bottom line: cellular shades are versatile, stylish, budget friendly, and safe. So what are you waiting for? Call us today for your FREE, In-Home Consultation (with no mileage fee)! We can’t wait to meet you.
