Cellular Shades for Alaskan Homes

Homeowners around the world use cellular shades to upgrade their window treatments and improve insulation. Cellular shades are popular amongst Alaskans due to their ability to provide insulation to windows, making them ideal winter window coverings. While it’s true that cellular shades outmatch nearly any other style of window covering when it comes to insulation, there are many other benefits that can add an abundance of value to any home.

Reasons Cellular Shades Are Worthwhile in Alaska

Insulating Design

Insulation is a defining feature of cellular shades. With internal air pockets that form a layer of protection its construction, cellular shades can be used to curb the energy loss that takes place as a direct result of unprotected windows. Hunter Douglas has two styles of cellular shades offering Alaskan homeowners both insulation and style choice: Duette® Cellular Shades featuring a classic cellular honeycomb design, and Sonnette® Roller Shades that use a hybrid cellular/roller shade model.


Hunter Douglas cellular shades are compatible with PowerView® Automation. Using PowerView® Automation allows you to control up to six window treatments at a time with the press of a button. Use the Pebble® remote or download the PowerView® mobile app to open or close your window coverings from the comfort of your couch.

Sound Dampening

The same cellular design that gives cellular honeycomb shades their unrivaled insulating abilities also gives homeowners the ability to dampen sound. By absorbing exterior noises and mellowing interior acoustics, cellular shades help build more peaceful home interiors.

Blackout Darkness

Expanded Light Control

Among the control systems for Duette® Cellular Shades, homeowners will find the Duolite® system, an innovative expansion to the light control spectrum of classic cellular shades. The Duolite® system backs the cellular shade with a room-darkening back shade that operates off the same control mechanism as the front treatment.
