As any Floridian would know, the sun is an intense beast that rears its head all too often. After all, Florida is the Sunshine State! Even though winter is getting nearer, we’re still having some pretty warm days. Unfortunately, this often comes at the price of a high energy bill. Read on to discover how energy-efficient window treatments take advantage of the sun to keep your home comfortable and your energy bills low.

Meet the Pioneer of Efficiency

Known as the Pioneer of Efficiency, Hunter Douglas Honeycomb Shades are engineered to trap cool air during the sweltering summer months and retain heat during the less intense winter months if needed. While this may sound like magic, it is actually the design of these cellular shades that makes them so energy-efficient.

Cellular shades work by trapping air in their honeycomb-shaped pockets, thus creating insulation and stopping air from escaping out of your windows. You can even invest in the Duette® Architella® shades that feature a honeycomb within a honeycomb to provide max efficiency. In short, honeycomb shades provide a more comfortable temperature in your home without the dread of a giant energy bill coming each month.

Looks Cool While Cooling 

Efficient does not have to mean unpleasant looking. Cellular shades keep your house cool while looking great. In fact, honeycomb shades come in variety of design options for you to choose from. From various fabrics, colors, sizes, textures, and opacities, the sky is the limit when it comes to choosing the perfect cellular shades that fit your styling needs. Plus, different levels of opacity means that you can control the different levels of light diffusion and privacy for your living space.

Flexible for Many Windows  

Do you have horizontal windows? Vertical? Both? Not a problem. Honeycomb shades are available in both vertical and horizontal orientations, meaning you can cover nearly every standard window in your living space. As mentioned, cellular shades come in varying opacities, allowing you to control the amount of light in your home. This means that if multiple windows are covered with cellular shades, your entire house will be cool and refreshing once you walk in the door. No more standing in front of a fan or sticking your head in the freezer when you get home!


Florida is famous for its outstanding heat index. Fortunately, honeycomb shades combat temperature changes, so your home can stay more comfortable all year long. For more information or to get your own shades, be sure to contact or visit Divine Interiors Group today!
