Cellular shades – sometimes referred to as “honeycomb shades” – are the perfect choice for minimalist, sophisticated interiors. Cellular shades are engineered to absorb sound, trap air for energy efficiency, and reduce light gaps for a crisp, clean and contemporary appearance.
One of our favorite brands is Norman, a leader in the window shading industry. Norman has come up with an inventive adaptation called the SmartFit™. SmartFit™ shades are truly a great advancement in cellular shades.
The SmartFit™ system is engineered to provide flexibility in light and privacy control as top-down bottom-up, while eliminating the unsightly cords in the middle of the shade. Perfect for just about any window, including skylights, SmartFit™ can be mounted onto the window opening with a tight fit to minimize light leakage and to maximize privacy. When the shade is completely raised, its hardware is concealed beautifully to provide clean lines and an uncluttered look.
SmartFit™ shades are great for practically any window but we particularly love SmartFit™for French doors with their low profile fit and minimal hardware. They’re also great for tilt windows and skylights and can be mounted close to your windows with a tight fit. They can be used for both inside or outside mounts. Its adjustable cord tension system can be unobtrusively fitted to the base of the window sill that will ensure consistent and long-term shade performance.
The top-down bottom-up feature of the shades allow the effortless control of privacy – pull down from the top to stop at a desired position to have a view of the treetops or the skyline while obscuring the direct view you would otherwise have from outside; lift from the bottom to provide a conventional view; on the other hand, pull down from the top and lift from the bottom for terrific room brightening with enhanced privacy.
The SmartFit™ shades come in light filtering and room darkening fabrics and a range of beautiful colors to help you make an easy choice!
