Cellular Shades — or Honeycomb Shades or Cellular Blinds — are window shades that are specially designed with layers of fabric cells that expand and contract when the shade is opened and closed. The cells trap air, making the shades great for regulating your home’s interior temperatures and keeping your energy bills down. Each style of our Cellular Shades is available in a selection of neutral colors to complement your home décor.


At The Shade Store, we offer three types of Cellular Shades:

Light Filtering Cellular Shades 
Create comforting environments in your home with soft natural light. Available in a 3/4" single cell option and 3/8" double cell option designed with narrower side-by-side cells.

Blackout Cellular Shades
Block out 99% of natural light and achieve complete privacy. Perfect for bedrooms and media rooms, and available in single and double cell options.

Day/Night Cellular Shades
Transition your window shades from light filtering to blackout with a simple pull of the middle bar, or raise and lower the shade entirely by adjusting the bottom bar.


Enhance your Cellular Shades with our selection of custom upgrade options:

Cordless Cellular Shades
Cordless Cellular Shades allow you to open and close your shades by lifting and lowering the bottom bar, with no dangling cords, chains or strings. Cordless is available for Light Filtering and Blackout Cellular Shades, and Day/Night Cellular Shades come with cordless control standard.

Motorized Cellular Shades
Motorization lets you control your Cellular Shades with a remote, an app on your smartphone or even the sound of your voice when you pair the motor with a smart home system. You can even synchronize multiple shades and set timers for effortless ease. Motortization is only available for Light Filtering and Blackout Cellular Shades.

3/8" Double Cell Cellular Shades

Your Cellular Shades are installed inside the window frame for a clean, built-in look.

Outside Mount
Your Cellular Shades are installed outside the window frame for a taller, more dramatic appearance.

Multiple On 1
Two Cellular Shades hang from one headrail and operate independently. This is a great option for covering large windows and doors.

What is the difference between single cell and double cell Cellular Shades?
While both single- and double-cell Cellular Shades help create an insulation barrier for the window, the way they work is reflected in their names. Single-cell Cellular Shades utilize one row of honeycomb cells to trap air, while double-cell Cellular Shades have two layers for added insulation. Thanks to that second layer, double-cell Cellular Shades offer even more temperature, light and noise control, and help block out even more UV light.

What is the difference between honeycomb and cellular shades?
Cellular Shades are known as honeycomb shades due to their design. When viewing both single- and double-cell Cellular Shades from the side, you’ll notice a honeycomb-like pattern, designed to help with insulation. These honeycombs create pockets that trap air, creating a barrier between the window and your space and providing insulation for energy and sound. Honeycomb Cellular Shades are one of the best ways to add energy efficiency to your home.
