Blinds and window covers specialist AustralianWindowCovering explains how the right window treatment can keep a home well insulated while also saving energy for the homeowner.
Energy-efficient window treatments such as honeycomb blinds are designed to address both functional and aesthetic objectives, making them a popular choice in the window decoration market. As energy cost continues to rise, homeowners can use solutions such as honeycomb blinds to increase energy efficiency.
Honeycomb blinds are high on visual appeal with their attractive contemporary looks. Stylish aesthetic apart, honeycomb blinds are also good insulators. Only the white side is visible from the outside, helping achieve a uniform appearance regardless of the colour chosen for the interior.
Honeycomb blinds are available in almost any colour with the fabric supplied in metallic or semi-transparent options. Blinds can also be customised to suit specific window applications. There are blinds that offer only the minimum emittance or partial light, while others provide complete blackout. For blinds that can be lowered to the glass, the ultra-thin version would be perfect.
Interior designers prefer honeycomb blinds mainly for their aesthetic appearance and function. These blinds can be used to control light in a room. Honeycomb blinds are available in many colours as well as models including vertical blinds, cellular blinds and blackout blinds.
