What blinds are energy efficient?

Honeycomb blinds (also known as cellular blinds) are an energy efficient option. 

These blinds are so effective because each ‘honeycomb’ in the blind traps still air ((like insulation). Because air is such a good insulator, this means less heat escapes from your home in winter. These blinds can also come with aluminium foil backing, making them a good option for keeping your home cool in summer.

Other blinds that are effective include roman and roller blinds.

Though venetian blinds and vertical venetians have become popular, they do very little to make your windows more energy efficient.
