At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we know that many of our customers feel overwhelmed by the vast selection of window treatments to choose from. That’s why we use this blog as a way to get general information out about different styles and their features and benefits. One popular window fashion is the honeycomb shade, which is highly versatile. Read on to learn more, and if you’d like to get an in-person look, be sure to contact one of our consultants today!
Fighting Rising Energy Costs
Untreated windows can lose up to 50% of a home’s heating or cooling costs. To fight that—and the fact that costs keep rising—you should be sure to have the proper treatment on your window. The honeycomb shade is one of the best products out there in terms of energy savings. The pockets created in its honeycomb-shaped design trap the cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter.
Honeycomb shades provide great privacy when fully lowered. They come in hundreds of colors and textures in opacities that range from sheer to blackout. The shade is available in 3/8″, ¾”, and 1¼” single, double, or triple cell size for even greater energy efficiency. One of the best perks is that, no matter what color or texture the shade shows to the inside of the house, its backing is white to the outside, which helps with curb appeal and allows you to have more options for the inside look.
Both Horizontal and Vertical Applications
Many of our customers have a regular window and a slider in the same room, which can seem like a challenge to cover in a matching or even coordinating way. Hunter Douglas, the leader in window fashions, turned the honeycomb fabric in a vertical orientation and hung it on a single headrail track to create Vertiglide™, which is also great as a room divider.
