See the Difference of Cellular Shades
With rich materials, and an even richer history, Portrait™ Honeycomb Shades feature award-winning designs, exclusive options, and industry-leading construction – no matter what the elements have in store. The simplicity of a fabric shade meets innovative insulation engineering in this modern cellular design. Contemporary style, clean lines, and high-performance design allow Honeycomb shades to instantly elevate any room.
Types of Honeycomb Shades
Single-cell shades have one layer of cells or pockets, while double-cell shades have two layers of cells. Our innovative Honeycomb Shades feature a unique D-cell structure, which provides unparalleled insulation and makes it our most energy-efficient product.
A state-of-the-art honeycomb structure traps air between the cells to help keep your space at the optimal temperature in every season. Nearly as budget-friendly as standard blinds, upgrading to honeycomb shades is an affordable way to reduce your carbon footprint.
Portrait™ Honeycomb shades come in a wide variety of on-trend colors and delicately textured fabrics to match your decor. Their compact design is artfully minimalist, offering a crisp look that won’t distract from your view.
Reduce Energy Costs with Style
Utilizing unique construction and advanced materials, Portrait™ is made to insulate better. Experience fabric technologies that will make you feel more comfortable and save on energy.
Solar heat passes through windows in the summer, while indoor heat escapes in the winter. The circulation of indoor and outside air is also a cause of energy loss. Portrait™ honeycomb shades can significantly protect your home from these types of energy losses by trapping air between the pocket architecture – creating a more comfortable living environment year-round, while helping you leave a smaller carbon footprint.
Flexible Light Control Options
Portrait™ Honeycomb fabrics offer 3 different opacities from sheer to light filtering to room darkening. Room darkening and blackout fabrics significantly calm and darken rooms, up to 100% of UV light. Light-filtering fabrics block approximately 90% of UV light and help to create the perfect mellowed-out area. With sheer fabrics, they block as little as 49.9% of UV light for beautifully softened views of the outside and warm gentle light coming in. For complete darkness blackout shades are an ideal option.
Sound Absorption Capabilities
A stand-out advantage of honeycomb shades is their unique ability to dampen noise. This sought-after quality makes them a great choice for children’s rooms, living rooms, or any other area where making the most of space matters without compromising on style.
Beauty + Functionality
Our fabric collection introduces a new era of luxury, style, and innovation. Offering a look that’s rich yet streamlined, sharp yet soft. The innovative D-cell structure offers a crisp modern look as well as dimensional stability.

When safety is a top concern, opt for the sleek look of a cordless system that eliminates the dangers of cords: a perfect solution for homes with kids or pets. Cordless honeycomb window shades are a stylish addition for an added level of security as well as versatility for adjustable light control.
A Great Choice for Patio Doors & Sliders

Frequently Asked Questions
What are honeycomb shades?
Honeycomb shades are a type of window covering using a unique honeycomb or cellular design, which consists of layers of fabric forming individual cells that resemble honeycombs when viewed from the side.
Are cellular shades and honeycomb shades the same?
Cellular window shades are also known as honeycomb shades. They offer more energy efficiency than pleated shades and cellular blinds because of their honeycomb construction.
Are honeycomb shades good for temperature control?
Yes, the honeycomb structure creates air pockets that provide insulation. These air pockets in double cell shades help to trap air and retain heat during colder months and prevent excessive heat from entering during warmer months.
Can honeycomb shades enhance privacy?
Yes, honeycomb shades enhance privacy by blocking the view from the outside while still allowing natural light to filter into the room. Depending on the chosen fabric and colors, honeycomb blinds can also offer varying degrees of light filtration or blackout capabilities.
How do you clean honeycomb shades?
To spot clean window treatments, add mild soap onto a slightly damp rag and dab at the spot. Do not rub the spot, as it could cause some damage to your honeycomb shades.
