Benefits of having Duette honeycomb blinds in your home

It’s no secret that blinds and shades provide the best solution for your window covering needs. Because of this, it can be difficult to select blinds or shades to match your home’s interior design. While we could go on and on about the different kinds of blinds and shades available to you, this post will focus on duettehoneycomb blinds.

What are duette honeycomb blinds?

These types of blinds are more versatile than many other blinds the market. Their unique design and cellular nature allows them to be used flexibly. Honeycomb blinds are made from two or more layers of nonwoven polyester that are combined at the pleats to form cellular compartments which trap in air.

This design doesn’t just add aesthetical value, it serves the purpose of efficiency and versatility. Here are the benefits of duette honeycomb blinds:

They offer better insulation

Many other blinds and shades struggle to keep heat in or out of your home. This can be a major drawback considering the erratic nature of South African weather. The cellular design of honeycomb blinds allows them to trap air within them and keep the heat or cold in/out. They’re the perfect solution for a balanced temperature in your home.

Our duette honeycombs blindshave excellent insulation properties and reduce sound reflection. They’re made from a unique antistatic honeycomb fabric with permanent pleats that resist fraying. Check them out!

They are highly versatile and efficient

Duettehoneycomb blinds can beinstalled where other blinds cannot be, such as on skylights. They travel along a supporting rail that prevents the blinds from falling, which allows you to open and close your skylight honeycomb blinds with peace of mind.

They also have dual opening functionality. While most blinds can only be closed from the top-down, duette honeycomb blinds can close from the bottom-up, allowing them to be closed inincrements. This means you can open them halfway if you so wish.

They’re space savvy and financially friendly

Duette honeycomb blinds fold upwards when they’re closed, a feature that prevents them from taking up too much space when closed. Thanks to their cellular design, these blinds can save you on your utilities (heating and air conditioning can be expensive).
