Cellular Shades and Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb Shades otherwise known as Cellular Shades combine light control properties with a clean simple design that looks great in any room. Cellular shades can be dressed up through the use of valances or drapery or left on their own for a modern clean look. The picture above shows one of the key features to cellular shades which is top down bottom up. This means that the shade can be lowered from the top down covering the lower part of the window allowing a view of the outside while still providing some privacy.
The narrow blind head rail makes cellular shades a great choice for any window where depth is a concern or in bow or bay windows where large head rails such as roller shades would cause a larger gap see Window Speak: Learning about the Language of Windows. They can be made in very large sizes and are available with a large number of lifting systems including Cordless (Literise), Ultraglide, Cord Loop (Easyrise) or motorized blinds.
