In today’s blog, we’ll be investing an extremely elegant window dressing that will add a cool sophistication to your space while also providing great thermal efficiency. Want something striking that will save on heating and protect the environment? Read on to find out everything there is to know about our honeycomb blinds

What are honeycomb blinds?

Sometimes known as cellular shades – honeycomb blinds are an innovative way to accomplish the three primary objectives of window dressing.

Firstly, because of their sleek design, honeycomb blinds enhance the style and design of any space within the home, makings a cool statement in any décor. Secondly, they are very effective in keeping external light from your space – and finally, honeycomb blinds help reduce users’ requirement for heating. This is beneficial for both the financially responsible among us, and equally those looking to make their homes more friendly towards our planet.

The eco-friendliness of honeycomb blinds

As we all know, communities around the world need to do more to protect our shared environment. While some steps may sound intimidating, there are plenty we can do in our homes to make them greener. We can use LED light bulbs, and induction cooktops to save energy, but we can also stop energy escaping our homes in the form of heat.

Retaining heat

Enter, honeycomb blinds. One of the best ways of retaining heat in a property, which in turn means you need to generate less of it, is to improve the insulation of a space – particularly around the windows. Managing heat levels is estimated to account for 25-30% of heating energy use but a honeycomb blind can help improve that, saving both money and the environment.

How do honeycomb blinds work?

Honeycomb blinds are named after the column of cells that are instrumental to their design and function. These cells trap air which in turn stops heat escaping in the winter and entering in the summer. As a result, heaters can be put on a lower setting, or for a shorter amount of time, and the same applies with any air-cooling systems you might use in the warmer months.

How to pick the perfect honeycomb blind

Honeycomb blinds are manufactured from two layers of material that form the column of small cells we mentioned earlier.

The honeycomb blinds we craft here in West Yorkshire have a slim profile making them the perfect addition for any window, regardless of its recess depth.

Different types of honeycomb blinds

Furthermore, you can pick a honeycomb blind to suit your specific needs. For instance, in the living room you may benefit from a standard honeycomb blind that simply reduces external light and noise without compromising your privacy.

Alternatively, if your honeycomb blind is to be incorporated into your bedroom, you can also benefit from the blackout functionality of one of our Luna honeycomb blinds. These will totally block out external light so you can enjoy a great night’s sleep while keeping warmer at the same time.

What colour are honeycomb blinds available in?
