Folding shades

Folding shades, particularly cellular or honeycomb shades are an excellent energy saver. If you’re in the market for new window treatments and are looking to save on energy costs, these shades are a great way to do so.

Cellular shades provide great insulation for your home. In between the cells of the shades are tiny pockets that trap air to maintain the climate within the room. Since heat moves towards the cold, during winter the heat is drawn towards the cold glass of windows to escape. The shades, particularly the pockets inside the cells block the heat from escaping, maintaining the interior temperature. The same thing happens during summer months when the cool air is trying to reach the warm glass. Whether you’re trying to keep the heat in during winter or block out the heat during summer, these folding shades do both.

Honeycomb shades are a great window treatment for both energy efficiency and light control. Most folding shades are available in a wide variety of fabric and pleat choices, making customization simple. If you’re looking for blackout fabric or a thin opacity to let the light in but still keep in your heat, those are both available.

Honeycomb shades and folding shades have been a popular choice of window treatments for as long as we can remember. If you’re looking to make your life more simple, consider motorized shades. By adding motor control technology to your window treatments, you can open and close them with the press of a button (from the other room!)

Folding shades can also be customized in other types, such as Roman shades. Roman shades. Roman shades don’t have the cell like honeycomb shades do, but provide great solar control for any room! If you are looking for energy efficient window treatments, honeycomb shades are a great option!
