1. Are honeycomb blinds any good?

Honeycomb blinds, also known as cellular blinds, are a popular window furnishing thanks to their unique structure and energy-efficient properties.

The nature-inspired honeycomb design of the blinds creates air pockets that help to insulate windows. This helps with keeping out cold drafts in the Winter, and blocking out heat in the Summer. They’re also quite effective at reducing outside noise and improving privacy.

Honeycomb blinds also come in a variety of colours and textures, making them a versatile option for any room. They can be customised to fit almost any window size or shape, and can be cordless for added safety and convenience.

Overall, they’re a fantastic choice if you’re looking for an energy-efficient and stylish window treatment option.

2. What is the difference between cellular and honeycomb blinds?

In short, there’s absolutely no difference. Cellular blinds is simply another name given to honeycomb blinds, derived from the cell-like structure. The names tend to be used interchangeably, both of which are correct. 

3. What is the benefit of honeycomb shades?

We’ll do you one better. Instead of one benefit, we’ve listed a whole bunch. 

  • Energy-efficiency: These blinds have a unique cell structure that creates air pockets, which helps to insulate windows. This insulation helps to keep out cold drafts in the Winter and block out heat in the Summer, reducing energy consumption and costs.
  • Light control: Honeycomb blinds offer varying levels of light control, depending on the opacity of the fabric. They can be made with sheer, semi-sheer, light-filtering, or blackout fabrics, allowing you to control the amount of natural light that enters the room.
  • Sound absorption: The air pockets in the honeycomb structure of the blinds also provide sound insulation. This helps reduce outside noise to a degree, making your home a more peaceful and comfortable space.
  • Privacy: Honeycomb shades offer varying levels of privacy depending on the opacity of the fabric. The cellular design also makes it difficult for people to see into your home from outside.
  •  Versatility: Honeycomb blinds are available in a wide range of colours, textures, and styles, making them a versatile option. They can complement any décor style or theme. Best of all, they can be used on doors too with the Glideshift variety.
  • Child safety: Cordless variations are available, making them a safer option for homes with young children or pets.

4. Do honeycomb blinds last?

Yes, they’re generally durable and long-lasting. Of course this does also depend on factors such as the quality of the materials used, the frequency of use, and the care and maintenance they receive.

Honeycomb blinds made from high-quality materials and installed properly can last for several years with regular use. A common concern is also that the cells in the honeycomb structure of the blinds can lose their shape or flatten over time. Ours come with Perma-cell technology. This means that the cells retain their shape and avoid this altogether.

Regular cleaning also helps. They can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth or a vacuum cleaner attachment to remove dust and debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as these can damage the fabric.

5. How much do honeycomb shades cost?

The cost of honeycomb shades can vary depending on factors such as the size of the shade, the material used, and scope of project. Custom-made honeycomb blinds can average a bit higher as well than, say, Ikea honeycomb blinds.

It’s best to get a personalised quote for a more accurate idea of how much they’ll cost for your specific needs. An in-home consultation is ideal for this.
