Honeycomb Shades

The design of honeycomb shades, also known as cellular shades, is a revolution in energy efficiency. The hexagon shaped cells trap a layer of air between the fabric of the shade, insulating your home against heat and cold and significantly reducing energy loss at the windows. Honeycomb shades have sound-filtering characteristics and also reduce outside noise. This design also blocks a maximum of UV rays while allowing natural light to diffuse into the room. And, with crisp pleats both front and back, this shade looks just as good from the outside as it does on the inside. They look great on their own or with curtains and drapes to dress up your room.

NY City Blinds offers honeycomb shades available in single, double, and triple layer designs, each extra layer adding more insulation and UV protection. Honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb options are also available for increased insulation and energy efficiency, and increased noise reduction in rooms with hardwood floors.

  • Available as a top-down/bottom-up option
  • Perfect for large windows and sliding glass doors
  • Motorized control: remotes, wall switches
  • Manual control: Cordless, EasyGlide technology
