Frequently asked questions
Why are they called honeycomb blinds?
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
How do honeycomb blinds work to regulate temperature?
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.
What difference does the cell size make?
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.
Can you use honeycomb blinds on the same window as curtains?
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).
How do I clean honeycomb blinds?
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.
What is the gap between the blind and the window frame for an inside fit roller blind?
Our inside fit roller blinds has an approximate gap of 17mm on the control side and about 13mm on the pin side of the blind. if you are concerned about too much light coming through we suggesting opting for a Honeycomb blind as these have a 5mm gap of each side of the blind which blockout more light coming through the sides of the blind.
