Levolor Cellular Shades- See Insulating Shades In A New Light

Abigail Sawyer | 13 Dec 2012 | Cellular Shades

As Winter approaches, Martha Stewart is telling us to winterize our gardens, but why not winterize our windows too? It’s just as important to keep your family and pets protected from the cold as it is your begonias. 10 to 20 percent of your home’s heating and cooling costs can be attributed to loss of energy through windows. Levolor Cellular Shades act as a thermal barrier for your windows by trapping air in their honeycomb shaped pockets. Bundle up your windows for winter and you could save you a ton of money!

Levolor Cellular Shades are made of soft, durable fabric that is easy to clean and comes in over 80 colors, so it’s sure to match your existing decor. However, because the climate of our country is so diverse we’ll help you find the insulating shade that is right for your region.
