    Thank you for sharing the great descriptions of the different blinds along with the wonderful pictures! One of the items missing was honeycomb shades. The popularity of these shades is skyrocketing due to the high energy efficiency, light control and lift control options available. In addition, the color pallets and textures have come along way from the bland neutral colors of the past. With the smallest material deduction on an inside mount installation a blackout shade can also help solve the problem of having too much light too early in the morning when you want to sleep in. Although the honeycomb shade can be too simple for some decors, dressing it up with a fabric cornice or side panels helps bring it all together.
