Cellular shades bring clean lines, soft texture and filtered light to almost
any room. These shades can cover standard windows, as well as sliding glass
doors, skylights, arches and many other specialty shapes. They're ideal for
living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms, kitchens and sunrooms.
Cellular shades are made from two or more layers of fabric woven together to
create three-dimensional "honeycomb" cells. When closed, the shades provide
privacy and turn harsh sun into soft, diffused light. When open, the shade
fabric draws into a neat, thin stack to maximize your view. There are no
visible cord holes - just one sleek, continuous look (even with wide widths).
The unique cellular construction also adds insulation, making these shades
energy-efficient and helping them to muffle noise.
You can choose your cellular shades according to how much light you desire.
Semi-sheer shades allow the most light to filter through, while semi-opaque
shades reduce the light somewhat and opaque shades reduce it a lot. All
cellular shades provide privacy, though sheer and semi-opaque styles may allow
shadows to show through the shades.
The soft fabric of cellular shades is easily vacuumed clean. If needed, spot
clean cellular shades using a mild detergent. Never dry clean cellular shades.
At The Home Depot, you'll find cellular shades in a wide variety of colors to
complement your décor. A neutral backing gives the shades a neat, uniform look
from the outside of your home. Options include cordless controls that
eliminate hanging cords to protect small children and pets. Top-down,
bottom-up styles - cellular shades that can be lowered from the top or raised
from the bottom - are available by special order.
