Cellular Window Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades or pleated shades, are a type of window covering used to block or filter light in residential and commercial settings. The Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades and Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades are among the most energy-efficient shades you can buy, helping keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

They are constructed of a paper- or cloth-like material into the shape of a cell, which holds trapped air that acts as a barrier to the window surface and can conserve heat or cool inside a room. The shades are made from soft window treatment material, as opposed to blinds, which are made of hard materials.

These cellular shades come in different sizes and a wide variety of colors and fabrics. There are also options of single cell shades, double cell shades, and triple cell shades. The number of cells built into a shade impacts its light filtration and insulation level. Different sized pleats are also available and blackout shades are a very popular option for bedrooms or media rooms.

One of the most popular options available on Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades is the LiteRise cordless lifting system. Adding LiteRise allows you to simply lift or lower cordless cellular shades by holding the bottom rail. No cords makes your home safer for pets and children.

Another favorite option is the top-down/bottom-up feature. This allows you to lower the top of the shade down, allowing in light while maintaining privacy.
