Top Cellular Shade Manufacturers for 2015
When it comes to insulating cellular shades and window treatments, nobody does it better than Comfortex. Their Symphony line is durable, tough and is resilient to any elements thrown its way. When you purchase their shades online or via a dealer, most retailers will honor their 10 year Limited Lifetime Warranty which is a true testament to the quality of their shades. If your in the process of considering Comfortex for your window treatments, order samples from an online retailer and compare the fabric to its competitors, you’ll quickly understand why we choose this as our top manufacturer.
When it comes to the window treatment industry, Hunter Douglas is leader by a long shot. Their Duette cellular line is breathtaking to say the least. They have excellent insulating properties much like the aforementioned Comfortex shades. The only downside with Hunter Douglas is the fact that they sell their shades only through local dealers. Since we are the “do it yourself” type and would prefer installing our shades over the white glove service this is a minor knock and it’s why they are listed second on this list. The quality of these shades is top touch, if you purchase them you’ll be pleased to say the least!
Another cellular brand that we’re quite fond of is Levolor and their Acccordia cellular shades. It’s in our option that these shades are breathtaking, visually they have a lot of appeal and look amazing in most homes. We prefer the fabric from Hunter Douglas and Comfofex over Levolor’s fabric because it’s in our option that these fabrics insulate and perform better when it comes to efficiency. If you’re looking for a heavy duty shade we encourage you to see this shade’s fabric prior to ordering.
Bali cellular shades come in a variety of materials and a wide palette of colors. They also stack VERY nicely when they are closed, this is one of our Bali attributes of Bali cell shades. The Bali website also has a ton of tools to help you understand the ins and outs of their cellular products before you make their purchase, even though you can’t order directly for them this was very convenient for us. You can even get free swatches directly from the Bali site, how cool is that?
Graber CrystalPleat cellular shades are stylish and still provide excellent energy efficiency. These shades are very attractive when they are closed, they also have insulating pockets of air which will help decrease your consumption of energy during the winter and in the summer . We really like the “Slide-Vue” shades for larger windows and patio doors, which are typically difficult to treat with cellular products.
