Blackout honeycomb window shades (also called cellular blinds or cellular shades
) are popular for several reasons: (1) they prevent light from penetrating through the material and into your room (so these blackout window shades are perfect for nurseries, bedrooms, and media rooms), (2) they come in a large array of colors, and (3) they can be designed to be bottom-up/top-down... so they can be raised and lowered in either direction (cover the bottom half of your window and you can see out, but people can't see in).
Get your cellular blinds motorized, cordless, with special lifting options, or with remote controls for easier and even safer operation. Available in several pleat sizes (the bigger the pleat the better the insulation). Also choose from among the single or double-celled window shades. Again, the more cells, the better your insulation. Choose from Graber, Bali, and American Blinds brand honeycomb shades.
