For most of us blinds come as an afterthought in the interior décor game; that is until we come across something ingenious as the design of cellular blinds, also known as honeycomb due to the model they were created on, the natural hexagonal honeycomb, the work of art of bees.
Packed with benefits for the home, they are also stylish, and can be just what you need to add a sense of sophistication in your living space, so it’s not an exaggeration to say honeycombe blinds are both elegant and functional, and the most versatile when it comes to control options, like corded or cordless, as well as styles, like “day/night” and “top down bottom up”.
Along with being affordable, honeycombe blinds are ideal for light control as they are available in more fabrics, blockout (perfect for bathrooms and bedrooms), light-filtering, and sheers, single cell or double cell, in a variety of colours, and cell sizes. Since the material is fade resistant, you wouldn’t have to worry of the sun doing damages overtime.
Of course, where there’s exceptional light control, there’s also privacy, but that’s not all these blinds can do for your home; there’s also the fact their design can trap the air, as the fabric creates pockets of air which helps reduce the transfer of heat, meaning the blinds help keep the home warm in winter, and cool in summer.
Thinking about it, it’s just what you need to make your home energy efficient, particularly those rooms where there’s draft, and cut down on cooling and heating costs (yes, you can add savings on your energy bills!).
The insulation applies to sound insulation as well, another reason to make them part of your interior especially in rooms where you want to keep the sound, such as home theater for instance. More on the great news, you can make the measuring for these blinds and their installation a DIY project, easily finding the tutorials to guide you step by step.
As for cleaning and maintenance, it’s advisable to run a feather duster lightly over the surface to keep the blinds clean, and for more thorough cleaning use the vacuum cleaner’s brush attachment sweeping the front and the back of the blind panels.
In case of stains, a mixture of water and soap would do the trick, wiping with a soft cloth. Once you’re done with that rinse with clean water, then wipe with soft dry cloth to help with the drying.
