Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades – Silver Spring, Maryland (MD) honeycomb shades for a modern home.

What are honeycomb shades?

Honeycomb shades are a type of window covering made from a continuous material designed to fold along crisp pleats for a voluminous style. On the outside, you enjoy a gorgeous fashion that adds a pop of visual interest to your windows. On the inside, your honeycomb shades work to trap air that would otherwise escape and make it difficult to keep your home heated and cooled, which can easily raise your energy bills.

Here are just a few reasons why honeycomb shades should be on your radar:

Benefit 1: Improved energy efficiency

Did you know your windows can be responsible for up to 30% of your home’s energy losses? Unprotected windows make it easy for excessive sunlight to heat your home, making it difficult for your home’s central heating and cooling to maintain a consistent temperature. This can also damage your furniture with harmful UV rays. Duette® Honeycomb Shades not only block out excessive light but are expertly designed with top-quality construction designed to keep your home better insulated for cooler summers and warmer winters.

Benefit 2: Array of styles

Honeycomb shades give you flexibility when it comes to choosing your interior décor. With the exclusive Alustra® Collection from Hunter Douglas, it’s easy to find the perfect shades to compliment your taste. Whether you like deco, mid-century modern, chic, or minimalistic interior décor, this collection is sure to have a timeless fabric you’ll fall in love with. Luxurious colors and vibrant patterns add a pop of visual interest to your windows, worthy of statement pieces, subtle complementary pieces, and anything in-between.

Benefit 3: Ultimate convenience

Honeycomb shades offer several unique operating systems to choose from. For manual operation, we love to recommend LiteRise®. Perfectly position your window coverings for all-day hold by gently pushing or pulling your shades into place. For innovative style, we recommend sleek motorization, like PowerView® Automation. Transform your window treatments into smart technology you can control wirelessly from anywhere in your home. Program your honeycomb shades to open and close on a schedule you create in the convenient PowerView® smartphone app. PowerView® even features adaptive lighting that syncs to your local sunrise and sunset times, making it easy to power your daily life with natural light.
