The cellular shades are one of the best types of shades for the windows as these offer nice design, energy-efficiency and an affordable price that the majority of customers is able to pay.
The majority of discount cellular shades use a fabric that rolls up and rolls down when you want to use it and these come in many different forms, patterns and dimensions.
Not only these block out the direct sunlight efficiently, but these also hold the hot air inside the cells and make your home energy-efficient. The energy-efficiency comes form the cells that are the core part of cellular shades.
What kind of cells are there?
It is important to understand there are two main types, as the structure itself determines the type of these. There are single and double cells, which are the air pockets that trap the hot air inside and keep the room warmer. Now, the double cells are used in the places where the temperature is really low during the winter, so it is needed to keep the house as warm/cold as possible.
Of course, these with the double cells are much more expensive than the ones with a single air pocket, however, there is really no need to buy the double-pocketed if you do not live in the environment where the temperatures re really high/low. Still, if you want, we highly recommend the double cells.
Different opacity of cellular shades
As you know, windows are there to enable the light to penetrate inside your house and make it a lot brighter. The cellular shades have the unique structure, which allows them to set the amount of light you want and therefore you have sheer, semi-sheer, semi-opaque and opaque.
The first one allows the maximum amount of light to come in the house, while the latter is the total blackout in the room.
Therefore, you can set the four different levels that you can set up, but if you want to ensure the total dark in the room, the cellular shaded on opaque setting will definitely block all the light that comes in the room. The perfect choice for the bedroom as you can block the light to enter the house.
The different setting of cellular shades
As you have probably thought of, these come with different options, allowing you to use these. The three standard options/settings are top down bottom up, cordless and automatic.
The top-down bottom up are the classic ones and you can see them everywhere. These allow you to set the light by raising them to the top, or placing them in the lower position. More than often, you will find these highly useful in bathrooms.
The cordless ones are great for families with kids, so the kids will not touch them and make a mess. If you want to use a single button to move them and set them up, then look for the automatic ones. These can be set easily remotely with a single button.
