Why are honeycomb blinds called honeycombs?
The answer lies in their inner construction.
Honeycomb shades are made of cells (that’s why they are also called cellular shades) with air pockets that bear a strong resemblance to honeycombs. The pockets create insulation and are the secret to the shade’s energy efficiency and ability to hold room temperature steady.
Honeycomb blinds are probably the most energy efficient blinds to be had. They insulate in a way similar to the way a jacket insulates your body in the cold outdoors. I think of them as “putting a jacket on my cold windows.”

I’m also impressed by these vertical honeycombs. In the past, verticals didn’t provide all that much insulation. But with these, you get a huge boost in energy conservation, plus great looks … and with minimal stacking space.
