Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are an exceptional pick for anyone who is looking for more energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the best R-value. A measurement of the insulating function of different substances, high R-values make a notable difference for people searching for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades work by collecting pockets of air that stop warm temperatures from escaping during the chilly season or from coming in during the warmer months. And with possibility to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the right version for your needs.

Want some options? Louver Shop of Metro Detroit offers added efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades offer 20 percent greater efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or try Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an interior, long-lasting window treatment. Usually created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings include a factor of clean style, higher property value and boosted energy efficiency.

Because they are fixed directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters create fewer places for warm air to escape during the chilly season. They also protect your home from heat and sunlight during the hottest days. They also provide improved light filtering performance.

At Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, you can select from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a beautiful fit for your house.

Built entirely of our exclusive polymer substance, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood. And when you want to have the best of both worlds, our Classic Shutters are made from a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When open, Roman shades fold neatly to make a stack of fabric. When closed, they produce a solid layer of material between the glass and your house. For your best chance at energy efficiency, pick a heftier fabric. Louver Shop of Metro Detroit has a collection of fabrics to work with every style and efficiency need.
