Cell Shades

Cell Shades are both functional and decorative.  The construction of a cell shade, by nature, creates a chamber which will insulate against cold or warm temperatures around your window’s glass area, as well as heat transfer from the sun.  So the greatest use of a cell shade is certainly functional, right?

Maybe your motivation is privacy, light control or aesthetics  in interior design.  Cell shades have really come a long way.  They are built in all kinds of ways now.  Let’s take a look at the Norman Portrait Honeycomb Shades, and see the many choices available today.
