Cellular Shades Make a Beautiful & Functional Addition to Chicagoland Homes

Cellular Shades Chicagoland ILIf you think that window shades are merely a means for controlling light levels and privacy in your home, think again. The right shades can do this and so much more. For example, as homeowners in Chicagoland have become more concerned about their energy usage, cellular window shades have increased in popularity. This is because cellular shades have a closed-cell design, which creates pockets of air that helps insulate the window and reduce heat transfer. When closed, these windows shades can have a significant impact on energy usage, potentially reducing monthly utility costs.
