Window shades are typically made of either cloth or vinyl fabric. Some (cellular shades) offer insulating material that can help to keep a room warmer during winter months and cooler during summer months. Cellular shades come in many colors and cell sizes including 3/8 inch, 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch honeycomb shaped translucent cells that are made of non-woven polyester fabric. This provides privacy while softly diffusing light. Our Cellular shades come with a white backing that provides a consistent appearance from the outside of your home. The cord holes are also hidden which allow for added privacy.
