Posted On: October 28, 2017 - By Aurick Bernard

Fabric Window Shades do a lot to keep a home comfortable. They are effective in blocking out the sun’s rays, reducing the heat that accumulates in a house and cutting glare. In the wintertime, they help keep homes warm by catching cold air coming in through drafts and blocking it before it trickles into the house.

One of the more popular fabric window shades on the market is the cellular shade. They have fantastic insulating abilities that cut energy bills keeping families comfortable financially as well as in their homes. The way the cellular shade works is they have a design similar to a beehive. It’s called a honeycomb design. The individual cells capture air attempting to sneak in through drafts and cracks and block that air from going any further. An easy way to tell if you have drafts is to slowly move a candle around the window and see if it flickers.

Most brands of cellular shades come with lots of colors to choose from. You can decide whether you want to keep your window shades a neutral color to blend into your interior design, or if you want to use bright bold colors to accentuate the color scheme of the room.

Cordless 9/16″ Translucent Single Cell Shades, 9/16″ Blackout Single Cell Shades and Express 9/16″ Translucent Single Cell Shades are all affordable window treatments that help insulate homes. With varying degrees they either filter or block light and help create a cozy atmosphere inside.

For any rooms that kids and animals will be playing in, be sure to get the cordless version.
