Why You Should Obtain Cellular Blinds For Your Home
There are so many window treatments nowadays and determining which one will suit you best might not be an easy task. Among the popular roller blinds and Venetian blinds, cellular blinds are often forgotten, despite their countless advantages. If you wish to learn more about cellular blinds and why you should obtain them for your home, please read our information below.
What Are Cellular Blinds?
Cellular blinds are affordable window coverings for your home. They have a characteristic cellular pleated design, and this design provides a variety of benefits. To illustrate just how beneficial these blinds are, we have explained the advantages in a separate section below.
Cellular shades, honeycomb blinds, or top-down bottom-up shades – please note that cellular blinds can be advertised under a variety of names. Cellular blinds are also known as honeycomb blinds, cellular shades, and even top-down bottom-up shades. So, if you cannot find what you are looking for under one name, you might have more luck trying one of the other terms.
We must mention to customers that there can be minor differences between cellular shades; this includes basic cellular shades and honeycomb shades. For example, honeycomb shades can have more layers.
How To Clean Cellular Blinds?
The cleaning method for cellular blinds is very similar to the cleaning method for other types of blinds. Many homeowners keep their cellular shades clean by using a dedicated vacuum cleaner with a special attachment. A damp cloth is also a possibility depending on the material used for honeycomb shades.
Please note that some cellular shades are made from a durable paper. The shades made from paper cannot be cleaned with anything damp. In these cases, a simple dusting with a feather duster usually suffices. Despite the various materials, cellular blinds are still considered easy to clean.
How To Remove Cellular Blinds?
To remove cellular shades, you will first need to remove the rail from the brackets; this is usually done by grabbing the headrail with both hands and then pushing it backwards. Then, try to tilt the rail down to clear it from the brackets. When the cellular shades are removed from the brackets, you can unscrew the brackets from the wall or the window.
Cellular Blinds And Cost
Cellular shades can be different in price and their price certainly depends on the material your blinds are made of. However, cellular blinds are always made from lightweight materials, especially compared to regular roller blinds. In fact, most cellular blinds are made from a durable paper or lightweight fabric.
The cost of window covering is not solely subject to the materials it is made of. In fact, colours and styles can also contribute to the overall cost of cellular blinds. If window coverings have obtained a specific finish or a colour that is not easily applied, it could put up the price of the window covering. This is not solely the case for cellular blinds, as it also applies to roller blinds, Venetian blinds, and more.
Do Cellular Blinds Really Help To Insulate?
One of the main reasons for homeowners to choose cellular blinds is their thermal properties. Despite this well-known characteristic of cellular blinds, there are many other advantages homeowners should be aware of.
- Energy efficiency – cellular shades can make your home more energy efficient; this since the window cover can keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. As a result, it means your heating and air conditioning systems need to work less hard. In addition to that, your existing heating and cooling systems do not have to run all the time.
- Light control – a good set of cellular shades can also help homeowners regulate light inside their home. When pulled down, the shades can prevent light from entering the home. On the flip side, it allows light inside the home when pulled up. You can also enhance the capabilities of cellular shades by choosing from a variety of block-out fabrics.
- Energy saving – if you have problems with insulation around the windows of your home, a good set of cellular shades could be energy saving too. By forming a barrier between the windows and the rest of your home, heat cannot escape during the colder months. It also forms a barrier during the warmer months, leaving strong sunlight outside.
- Light filtering – is the sunlight entering your home too strong in certain places? Or do you need a little light filtering in a room filled with computers? Whichever it may be, some cellular shades can keep sunlight outside. Of course, you also have some sheer options that let in some sunlight, but also provide you with some privacy. The options are as widespread as curtains, so cellular blinds should always be a consideration where versatility is concerned.
