Blockout honeycomb blinds

Thanks to their honeycomb shaped cells, these blinds work to trap pockets of air that form a layer of insulation against your widows. Choose blockout to darken rooms, dampen noise and regulate temperature.

Our blockout honeycombs come in three different cell sizes: 10mm cell blinds are compact and suit small windows while the 20mm cell honeycomb blinds are better on larger windows and stack into a smaller space at the top of the window. For the increased energy efficiency benefits, choose our double cell blinds.

Frequently asked questions

  • Because when you look side on at the blind, it has a distinct shape like a honeycomb. From the front, however, the blind has uniformed pleats with subtle horizontal lines. They are sometimes also called cellular blinds or shades

  • Yes, great choice. Either pair a blockout honeycomb blind (for night) under sheer curtains (for day), or use a light filter or sheer honeycomb blind (for day) under a blockout or thermal curtain (for night).

  • The lined cells of blockout honeycomb blinds create a pocket of air that acts as a barrier against the window; quite like how double glazing works. It’s important to note that only blockout honeycomb blinds do this; the light filter and sheer versions do not.

  • No, but they can help reduce it. Again, it is similar to double glazing as soundwaves do not carry well through that pocket of air.

  • If there’s enough depth within the window recess to fit the blind (see our measuring guide) then an inside fit is a clean and tidy solution; just be aware on very small windows this means the blind will obstruct some of the view. An outside fit (when combined with back rolling operation) is better for not letting in light or cold air as it creates a better seal over the entire window and frame.

  • We offer free shipping on regular sized orders. However, this excludes rural delivery and oversized orders. You can find out more about shipping costs for these here.

  • Honeycomb blinds are a good choice for just about any room of the home. To choose the right one, think about how much light and privacy the room needs.

    Choose a blockout honeycomb blind for rooms you want to be warmer in winter (and cooler in summer) or rooms you want to be dark at night.

    Choose a light filter honeycomb for very sunny windows in street-facing rooms where you want privacy as they are between translucent and opaque.

    Sheer honeycomb blinds are good for sunny rooms where privacy is not a concern; they are see through to maintain your view but work to reduce glare from the sun.

  • 10mm cells create narrow pleats when lowered; as there are more of them they look better on smaller windows. Our larger cell size, 20mm is a good option for larger windows. We also have double cell honeycomb blinds that join two 10mm cells together; when used on a blockout option this provides the ultimate temperature control.

  • We recommend you dust or wipe them as part of your regular cleaning to stop any build up.

    Lower the blind and try vacuuming them on a low setting with a soft brush attachment. You can also use a hairdryer (on a cool setting) to blow through and clear out the inside of the cells. We don’t recommend using water to clean honeycomb blinds in case it causes them to lose their shape, but if you have a stubborn mark, try dabbing at it gently with a damp cloth.
