The Best Cellular Shades for Your Bedroom

Choosing the best cellular shades, blackout shades, honeycomb shades for your bedroom near Anchorage, Alaska (AK)

When choosing a new window treatment for your bedroom, sleep quality is undoubtedly one of your priorities. Blackout curtains are often the go-to solution for ultimate light control because of their design choices and flexibility. However, one choice you might not have considered are blackout shades. At Exciting Windows, we carry an array of Hunter Douglas window treatment products, including the revolutionary Duette® Honeycomb Shades. These shades are one of the best choices out there for unparalleled light control and energy-efficiency —two qualities that are of the utmost importance in extreme climates like Alaska. Duette® challenges the traditional idea of blackout shades with flexible lighting and a range of stunning fabrics to choose from, as well as feature durability and hands-free control. Let’s take a closer look at some of these qualities.

Flexible lighting

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a beautiful solution to the struggle of finding suitable window fashions for the bedroom. These shades feature a unique LightLock™ system that utilizes the side channels of the window to seal out any unwanted light from seeping through. This allows you to choose from a range of fabrics without compromising on room-darkening qualities. Enjoy soft, natural light during your waking hours and total darkness when it’s time to rest. This is particularly useful in Alaska, where we’re known for wide daylight variations throughout the year. With Duette® you can stick to your schedule year around while enjoying stunning windows.

Moreover, Duette® boasts up to 70% sound absorption —another way to ensure a great night’s sleep!

Unbeatable energy-efficiency

Cellular shades are known by their unique design. Duette® revolutionizes this traditional structure with the honeycomb cell shape that’s designed to trap air between the layers of your shade for optimal energy-efficiency. Windows are responsible for up to 30% of your home’s energy losses, and Duette® seeks to answer this problem with a shade that creates a buffer between your home’s interior and exterior and better insulates your home.

Gorgeous designs

Choose from an array of stunning fabrics, textures, colors, and even hardware designed to bring the curated feel of luxury to your home. Duette® Honeycomb Shades feature the beautiful Alustra® Collection, full of designs you won’t find anywhere else. Set the mood with warm colors for an all-day, energetic feel; or choose muted, darker colors for a more soothing atmosphere. With such a diverse collection, it’s easy to turn your Duette® shades into your room’s next statement piece.

Hands-free operation

With award-winning PowerView® Automation, your Duette® Honeycomb Shades become wireless shades you can operate from anywhere inside or outside of your home. You’ll never have to worry about unsightly motors, cords, or batteries —only ease of operation. Use the PowerView® app to program your shades to open and close in flux with the brightest times of day to maximize natural light or use this schedule to ensure your routine stays intact year-round. Control your shades with your voice through Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, or Google Assistant pairing.
