Custom Cellular Shades

How are cellular shades different?

They look like standard pleated shades. But the pleats are double-sided, forming cells or pockets. Air within the cells forms an insulating barrier, helping to regulate indoor temperatures.

Cellular shades are ideal for windows that can’t keep out the heat or cold. And they may qualify you for a federal tax credit.

Why Choose Cellular Shades?

  1. Energy Efficiency: The honeycomb design creates air pockets that act as a barrier, preventing heat transfer between the inside and outside of the room.
  2. Federal Tax Credit: The federal government has approved cellular shades as an energy-efficient product that makes you eligible for a tax credit.
  3. Light Control: Cellular shades come in various opacity levels, from sheer to blackout. They diffuse light, casting a gentle glow while reducing glare.
  4. Privacy: Depending on the type of cellular shade you choose, you can maintain your privacy without sacrificing natural light.
  5. Sound Absorption: Air pockets within the cells dampen sound vibrations.
  6. Aesthetics and Versatility: Cellular shades come in various colors, styles, and fabrics. We can customize them to fit different window sizes and shapes, including arched or angled windows.
  7. UV Protection: Cellular shades will block most UV rays from entering your home and damaging your belongings.
  8. Easy Maintenance: Dusting or vacuuming with a brush attachment is usually enough to keep your shades clean.

Cellular shades balance style, functionality, and energy efficiency, making them a popular window treatment for homes and offices.

Customizing Your Cellular Shades

We invite you to visit our Los Angeles showroom to view some of your available options. These include:

  • Motorization: Motorized cellular shades are perfect for large or difficult-to-reach windows. They can be operated from a switch, remote control, or voice-enabled device.
  • Room Darkening: Choose room-darkening cellular shades for complete privacy and a dark sleeping environment. They come in various opacity levels.
  • Top Down/Bottom Up: This type of cellular shade lets you lower the bottom of the shade while raising the top, so that you can admit natural light while maintaining your privacy.
  • Cordless: Cordless options eliminate the danger of hanging cords and are ideal for households with young children or pets.
  • Sheer Options: Sheer cellular shades let you enjoy soft, filtered light while providing insulation against heat and cold.
  • Color: You can choose from dozens of colors to match your interior decor.
  • Fabrics: Cellular shades come in vinyl fabric, polyester, woven wood, and more. Each material has a distinct look and feel.
