Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a good pick for people looking for increased energy efficiency. as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the greatest R-value. A measurement of the insulating function of different materials, high R-values produce a noticeable difference for homes looking for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades operate by making pockets of air that stop warm air from slipping out during the cold season or from getting in during the hottest days. And with the ability to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the best version for your needs.

Interested in your options? Louver Shop of Gulf Coast provides additional efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ feature, your Duette shades offer 20 percent higher efficiency—due to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or think about Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a customized, more permanent window treatment. Generally built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add an element of classic style, increased property value and boosted energy efficiency.

Because the treatments are fixed right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters create fewer places for heat to slip out during the coldest days. They also insulate your space from heat and sunlight during the warmest days. They also offer better light filtering performance.

At Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, you can pick from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to create a beautiful fit for your style.

Created entirely of our exclusive polymer material, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood. And when you need to have the best of both solutions, our Classic Shutters are comprised of a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When drawn open, Roman shades fold cleanly to make a stack of material. When drawn, they become a single piece of cloth between your window and your room. For your best bet for energy efficiency, choose a heftier weave. Louver Shop of Gulf Coast has a collection of fabrics to fit every style and efficiency need.
