Cellular window blinds or shades are a favorite amongst consumers. Unlike other wood blinds, they provide better light control which lets a controlled amount of light. They have a filtering effect on light; so you can choose between filling your rooms with abundant light, with shrouding it in complete darkness, or adjust the blinds to expel dim lighting.
Cellular window blinds come in a honeycomb cellular structure, with woven and non-woven fabrics constructed to form a cross-sectional shape. This structure improves energy efficiency, and ensures privacy. These blinds are available in an array of fabrics, with top-down and bottom-up options, a cordless feature, and a remote-control feature, as well.
As mentioned above, the construction of the blinds allows it to act as a filter for light, leaving the room illuminated with a mild and pleasant glow. The honeycomb structure also acts as an insulator and limits the flow of incoming and outgoing air by trapping them midway, thus keeping the room at a steady temperature. Such cellular shades help maintain room temperature, by keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The larger the cell size, the better the insulation.
Unlike non-cellular blinds, the blackout cellular fabric ensures complete privacy in your bedroom, nursery, or projector room. Normal window blinds have small openings between their slats, which is not the case with the cellular ones. They have been designed in such a way that there is no room for any 'sneak-peeking'. They can also be utilized in laboratories to carry out certain experiments which require absolute darkness. With small babies at home, it is difficult to lull them to sleep during the day, especially in the afternoon. The solution lies in covering their windows with these cellular blinds, as they not only create complete blackout but also reduce noise.
The top-down feature is another factor which makes cellular shades better than the usual kind. You can lower the shade so that the light can come in, while still maintaining your privacy. And, of course, there's the bottom-up feature to raise the blinds from the bottom. The cordless feature is another option for extra safety. This technique does not require a lift cord, just a touch of the finger is enough to raise or lower the blind. For windows that are hard to reach, you can add a remote-controlled sensor on each shade. With the help of the remote, you can control the shades from a distance of 20 to 30 feet away, and raise or lower them as you see fit.
Cellular window blinds are a great buy for your house. They are less vulnerable to color fading and are fire-resistant. Cleaning the cellular shades does not take much time, regular vacuuming makes them look fresh and clean. Thus, they not only save your energy, but also your time!
