3 Main Pros and Cons of Cellular Shades in Vista

No window treatment is 100% perfect. They will all have their own pros and cons. While they all work by blocking light out of the home, some shades and window coverings are better at blocking heat escaping and offering privacy. Vista cellular shades are popular options for many homes. Here’s a look at the main pros and cons of using them.

Feel the Difference in Heat Immediately

If you’ve kept your windows bare with just curtains, you’ll instantly feel the benefits of heat that cellular shades offer. The blinds work by circulating heat within the honeycombs. When the heat tries to leave the home through the window, it circulates back from the combs and into the room again. Likewise, when the heat comes through the window in the summer, it will circulate back out of the house.

You’ll see lower energy bills thanks to cellular shades in Vista. They’re very easy to use, effective, and improve air circulation around the home. However, you’ll need to make sure they’re placed at a good distance from the windows. If up close, they can collect ice inside the honeycombs.

Offer More Privacy

A major advantage to using cellular shades is to your privacy. Many honeycomb shades (another name for cellular shades because of the honeycomb design) work top down-bottom up. That means they can sit in the middle and slide up and down. You can slide them down to open the space at the top of the window to let light in, without allowing neighbors to see into your home. If you want to see what’s going on in the world, you can slide them back up like regular blinds.

More privacy often means more security. People can’t see into your home when you have them completely closed, so have no idea if you’re in or not. They’re not going to risk breaking in if there’s a chance you’re around!

No Cord Structure

While offering privacy, most of the blinds are cordless. Not only does this make them easier to use, since you don’t have to reach up for them, but they are safer for children.

There is a downside to this, though. If you’re short, you may not be able to push the Vista cellular shades all the way to the top of the window. You can only use them from the halfway mark, which can limit some of your energy benefits.

You can get corded structures, but you will have two for the two different elements of the blinds. When you first start using the blinds, you’ll need to get used to pulling on the right cord. The cords do have a space to clip, keeping them out of the reach of children, but this isn’t a foolproof method to keep your family safe.

Cellular shades in Vista can certainly be powerful options for the home. They come in a variety of colors and patterns to work with your home and style. They’re extremely easy to install and affordable for all budgets, making them one of the most popular options for all families.
