Lending a hand to mother nature is always on-trend, but energy-saving options are sometimes less stylish. When trying to reduce energy consumption in your Chicago home, cellular shades are an excellent choice, and we can help you decide if they're suitable for your home.
Energy-Saving with Style
We won't bore you with statistics, but windows are responsible for a significant portion of your energy costs. Cellular shades are the perfect union of window treatment form and function. The cells give your windows endless depth and texture while trapping air to provide exceptional insulation. Choose from several cell sizes to accent every decor and window size.
Beyond the energy-saving cells, there are a couple of other benefits for these shades: honeycomb shades also absorb sound so that you will have a more relaxing abode. Equip your energy-saving cellular shades with motorization, and you can take advantage of natural heat by scheduling your window treatments to open at midday, even if you're not at home.
Top Down: Not Just for Cars
If you'll use cellular shades in your bedroom or bathroom or have nosy neighbors, it may be worth considering the top-down/bottom-up style. This configuration allows you to lower the top, raise the bottom, or mix the two to create the perfect amount of light and privacy in every space. If you have double-hung windows, lowering the top portion will allow you to enjoy fresh air without feeling like you're in a wind tunnel.
No Window Left Uncovered
It's often the case that someone will fall in love with a particular shade, only to find out it's not suitable for EVERY application in their home. Energy-saving cellular shades can cover every window in your home, including doors, skylights, and even tilt-turn windows. An optional blackout system reduces unwanted light by as much as 50% more than standard cellular styles, making these shades even more versatile.
What if you want cellular shades' energy-saving ability but in a roller style? We have good news! You can enjoy the sleek, compact look and easy operation of roller shades with the same insulating qualities as cellular styles. The roller variety also offers light diffusion, which is one of the cellular shades' most popular qualities. Opt for a front-rolling shade for a modern look that clears window handles and cranks.
Great for All Ages
Energy-saving cellular shades are a top pick for everyone in your home. Cellular shades offer fantastic light-blocking capability and sound absorption, so they're ideal for nursery windows. They are lightweight and available with cordless operation, making them a wonderful choice for a stylish child's bedroom or playroom. Cellular shades are an excellent choice for a guest bedroom where you want to keep the decor simple but not dull.
