There are many window treatments out there that offer functional benefits, but did you know there were even some that could save you money? Honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas make your home more energy-efficient, so you can save money on your energy bills. At Window Happenings, we offer a variety of ways to customize your honeycomb shades, so they fit your style and functional needs perfectly. Give us a call today to learn more about the many benefits of these amazing window treatments.

Our Duette® Honeycomb Shades feature small pockets that trap air and keep it from escaping through your windows. These cells insulate your windows, so your home’s internal temperature stays regulated. The extra insulation means your heating and cooling units won’t have to work as hard, and your home will stay more comfortable all year long. For maximum energy-efficiency, consider the Duette Architella®, which features a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design. These window coverings are also available with Vertiglide®, which gives them a vertical orientation, so you can insulate wide windows and sliding glass doors.

In addition to their energy-efficiency, cellular shades are great for light control and privacy, as well. Choose from a wide variety of fabrics, including options for light-filtering and room-darkening. Room-darkening fabrics can help keep light out of a room, making them perfect for bedrooms. Because two layers of fabric are needed to make up the cells of this window treatment, there is an extra layer for light blocking.

To enjoy more natural light in your home, consider a sheer or semi-sheer fabric. These options gently diffuse light to soften it and spread it around the room, providing better illumination and a more comfortable ambient light. This can further save you money by reducing your reliance on artificial light.

With so many beautiful fabric options, it’s easy to find something that will look great with your existing decor. Plus, the fabric selection means you can have honeycomb shades in virtually every room in your home, giving you a more cohesive look. We even offer free in-home consultations, so you can see how honeycomb shades will look and work in your home before you purchase them.

Along with the function and style benefits offered by honeycomb shades, they are available with PowerView® Motorization to help make your daily life easier. PowerView Motorization allows you to control your shades in a variety of ways, including the Pebble® remote control and through the PowerView® app on your smartphone or tablet. With the mobile app, you can also schedule your shades, so they adjust automatically during the day. You can have them adjust based on factors like outside temperature or time of day. With this option, it will always look like someone is home, even when there isn’t.
