We have so many ways to filter the light coming into our tiny homes. We can hang nice window curtains or we can install light filtering shades. When you have close neighbors you might be interested in getting nice looking and functional window shades.
Light filtering shades have so many advantages. With their insulating features they‘re energy efficient and at the same time they just have style and look good.
Here are some thoughts around light filtering shades that are cordless and cellular.
Let‘s first take a look at the advantage of light filtering window shades. Light filtering means that they reduce the summer heat coming in through the window and in winter they reduce the warmth escaping from your home through the window.
When a window shade is cellular built that means that it is built with honeycomb structures. This is a great feature to insulate against leaks and air coming in from outside. At the same time cellular shades regulate the indoor air. This is an important point if you have rooms with a draft.
How does a window shade work when it‘s cordless? Well, it has a spring tension located inside the bottom rail. To operate this kind of shades you only need to pull or push. Many choose cordless shades because they‘re pet-safe and children-safe.
Besides their above mentioned qualities cellular cordless light filtering shades create a stylish and elegant look to your room providing a warm glow on sunny days. Most of the brands offer a wide variety of colors, you can find everything from neutral white to chocolate brown. Among these you surely can find the best shade for your home style.
Before choosing the right shade for your tiny home you‘ll need to measure the windows where you want to install the new shades.
The shades are available in many different sizes. Cellular shades are easy to size and install. Some even provide you with utility knife and sizing tools to do that. And don‘t forget you can install these shades over doors as well.

Well made and super easy to install.
