Cellular shades are the perfect choice for many rooms and styles. Here's why:
- Stylish: Cellular shades are a great modern décor choice to elegantly finish a room while still being cost-effective.
- Insulating: The pleated pocket design of honeycomb shade fabrics means they are a great choice as insulating window treatments. Cell shades insulate well against both the heat and the cold.

filtering options to blackout.

While cellular shades are a great option for window coverings, they may not be the perfect option for everyone or for every room. A few things to consider:
- Cellular shades do not have tilting slats to allow for light adjustment, which limits the flexibility of available light control.
- Honeycomb shades can absorb moisture and odors, so they aren’t recommended for areas such as a kitchen or bathroom. They can still be a viable choice but consider where they will be installed and ensure there is sufficient distance from showers, sinks, and stoves.
