Both types of blinds are made from folded fabric that creates texture when raised or lowered.

They also come in single or double layers of honeycombs, creating pockets of air that provide insulation and energy savings. The double-cell blinds are more energy efficient than the single-cell blinds, and it's important to ensure a tight fit for maximum effectiveness in preventing energy transfer.
