Many consumers today are trying to create more eco-friendly homes. At Red Star Paint, we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint, but we also understand the importance of having products you love looking at. Honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas increase your home’s energy efficiency and enhance its aesthetic appeal.
Did you know that up to 30% of your home’s heating and cooling costs result from unwanted air entering or escaping from around your windows? Honeycomb shades have an innovative interior design that traps air in small cells to provide insulation right at the window. Duette Honeycomb Shades are an excellent way to reduce utility costs while investing in your home’s overall style.
Endless Allure with Duette® Honeycomb Shades
Most window treatments are made using a single layer of fabric or other material. Regular window covering can provide insulation, but only if the fabric is heavy or the material is opaque. The unique construction of Duette® cellular shades creates a network of honeycomb-shaped cells inside the shade that trap air at the window. These cells form a barrier that keeps the outdoor air and indoor air separate. The insulation provided by Duette® Honeycomb Shades is an innovative cellular shade that is top rated by the Attachment Energy Rating Council (AERC).
Duette® cellular shades are available in various fabrics and have soft lines that complement any interior style. Choose a light-colored fabric with a light-filtering opacity to make a small, dark room look and feel much more spacious. If you have a room that is already so large it feels a bit off putting, we suggest using a darker shade of fabric to create a cozier feel. One of the things we love the most about honeycomb shades is the comprehensive collection of fabrics. You’re sure to find one you love for every window in your home.
The Alustra® Collection
Hunter Douglas is the gold standard for any custom window treatments, and The Alustra® Collection raises that bar just a bit higher. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are already available in the industry’s widest selection of colors, fabric, opacities, and pleat sizes so it takes something special to up the ante. The Alustra® Collection has that something and a whole lot more. Shop this collection for intriguing texture and color combinations and exclusive design-inspired fabrics. Enjoy the sophisticated look of the subtle metallic sheen that’s integrated into the fabrics and specialty hardware of the collection.
Even with a room-darkening opacity, unwanted light can sneak in through small gaps at the sides of your cellular blinds and disturb your sleep. Hunter Douglas comes out in front once again with the LightLock® system. The innovative design features patent-pending side channels that absorb and deflect nearly all incoming light. You’ll never be awakened by headlights or streetlamps again. The cells that trap air also help to reduce exterior noise by as much as 70% for a more tranquil sleeping environment.
Just when you’re thinking it can’t possibly get any better than Duette® Honeycomb Shades, discover Duette Architella®. This cell-within-a-cell design provides twice the insulation and noise reduction without comprising the gorgeous appearance of these cellular shades.
