Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, are a strong pick for anyone who is looking for better energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, cellular shades are the window treatment with the highest R-value. A measurement of the insulating capability of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values make a noticeable difference for families searching for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades operate by creating small compartments of air that stop heat from escaping during the cold season or from entering during the summer. And with the ability to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the right version for your home.

Consider these options. Louver Shop of Wichita brings more efficiency and style with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ feature, your Duette shades provide 20 percent more efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or consider Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a customized, long-lasting option for your windows. Generally created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer an aspect of timeless style, increased property value and heightened energy efficiency.

Because they are fixed directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for warm air to slip out during the cold season. They also protect your house from heat and sun during the warmest days. They also deliver enhanced light filtering performance.

At Louver Shop of Wichita, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a perfect match for your family.

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 feature a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When open, Roman shades fold neatly to form a stack of shade material. When closed, they create a single layer of cloth between the glass and your space. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, try for a more substantial material. Louver Shop of Wichita has a variety of fabrics to work with each style and efficiency need.
