When it comes to choosing new blinds for your home, you have several options available, but you always want to choose the best for you and your home. Among the options available, you have your typical venetian blinds with the basic horizontal slats that you can find in almost any home and cellular honeycomb blinds that are a bit more unique. Here are a few main differences between the two to help decide which might be best for you.
- Energy efficiency: One of the greatest differences you’ll find between venetian and cellular honeycomb blinds is that the latter is far more energy efficient. In fact, they’re EPA-certified for their efficiency, so you can even use the purchase as a tax deduction. The honeycomb shape acts as a buffer between the window and room to keep air from escaping on either end. This way, you can enjoy the perfect room temperature and lower energy bills all throughout the year.
- Appearance: The most obvious difference between the two types of blinds is that the cellular honeycomb blinds won’t really have that gaping horizontal slat appearance. They look more like the name suggests: honeycomb, when looking at them from the side. You’ll also find a wider variety of style options to choose from, so you can find something that fits your preference and needs.
- Special features: Often, venetian blinds will require more manual operation, though you can choose a cordless lift feature that can be quite handy. Cellular honeycomb blinds offer different features to choose from, like motorized remote control, cordless lift, and more.
