Blinds.com Economy Blackout Cellular Shades are a budget-friendly way to completely block external light and add insulation to your windows. Perfect for day sleepers, great for media rooms and ideal for buffering against extreme heat and cold, these shades feature air-trapping honeycomb cells that repel summer heat and winter cold alike. The result is year-round comfort and lower energy bills.
Whether you choose single or double cell thickness, these shades will stack compactly at the top of your window, providing a clear view to the outdoors. They are available in a variety of colors and cell sizes, and offer a wide array of customization options, ranging from cordless and motorization which are considered to be safer for kids, to Day/Night which provides flexible light control.
Install Time: 10 - 15 Minutes
- Double cell shades offer better insulation than single cells and are recommended for climates with extreme heat or cold.
- If you are looking for optimal insulation, choose TripleShield which has a double cell construction but with a concealed metallic liner to provide a thick layer of light and temperature insulation.
- For large windows, a continuous cord loop enables larger shades to operate more smoothly and effortlessly.
- Top-down/bottom-up gives maximum light control and privacy by allowing you to open/close the shade from either the top or the bottom and comes with either the corded or cordless option.
- The Day/Night option allows you to have two shades in one. The top of your shade will have a blackout material while the bottom will have your choice of light filtering cellular fabrics.
- Motorization offers the most convenient way to operate your shades thorough out your home. Each shade will come with a filled battery pack or a plug in transformer. Each shade will come with a small two-button remote that has been pre-paired to the shade. To control multiple shades with one remote, add the single channel remote to one of your shades. This remote also features a "home" button that allows you to save a favorite shade position.
- Blackout shades will block all light during the day. For daytime light filtration, consider one of our light-filtering shades.
- These shades are not recommended for areas where they may get wet. For such areas consider faux wood blinds, mini blinds, or faux wood shutters.
- Light Blockers can be added to cover the side light gaps.
