Minnesota winters are known to be cold. As the snow piles up outside, you can just imagine your energy bills piling up in response. And we know you’ve got a lot more to be worrying about this time of year without having to spare another thought to forces outside of your home. At Viking Blinds, we want to help you by suggesting an innovative new window treatment that will keep your home warm and snug all winter long, and even does double duty keeping things cool and peaceful during the summer! Read on to learn about the many benefits of honeycomb shades for homes below!
Benefit 1: Energy Efficiency
Hunter Douglas is the top of the line for window treatments, and their innovative cellular shades are no exception. One of the many benefits of honeycomb shades is their energy efficiency. Their Duette® Honeycomb Shades are designed with a pocket style that traps any air trying to get into your home between two carefully stitched layers of fabric. This keeps the cold from seeping into your home for extra comfort and reduced energy bills.
Benefit 2: Improved Acoustics
Even better, another one of the benefits of honeycomb shades is that their unique air pocket design also traps up to seventy percent of the sound from outside of your home, keeping the inside tranquil and quiet. With improved acoustics on the inside of your home and sound reduced on the outside of your home, snowplows in the early hours won’t disturb your slumber. You can also enjoy an extra dose of energy efficiency with the Duette Architella® line. Featuring a honeycomb within a honeycomb, this shade is perfect for those especially drafty rooms!
Benefit 3: Light Filtration Capabilities
Of course, the benefits of honeycomb shades do not just occur in the wintertime. With a wide variety of beautiful fabrics, honeycomb shades take harsh, hot sunlight and transform it into a soft glow around your windows. As if that weren’t enough, these shades are not just practical, but beautiful as well. The crisp pleats of the cells neatly stitched and ready to hold their edges for years to come, ensuring that your windows always look polished. Combine the cellular shades, available in the widest selection of fabrics, textures, materials and designs, with varying levels of opacity for light reduction, with the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ options for draperies, specially designed and curated to look amazing with any Hunter Douglas window treatment.
Whether you are searching for a shade that provides energy efficiency, reduced energy bills, light filtering capabilities, improved acoustics, or all of the above, we are sure that you will love the many benefits of honeycomb shades.
