Curtains can be a benefit to your home all year round. They can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We advise that on extremely cold or hot days to keep your curtains closed. This will prevent the heat from escaping in the winter and the heat from the sun from entering in the summer.
We offer lined curtains which help with insulation. Opting for thermal-lined curtains can also provide extra insulation and improve the energy efficiency of your home, reducing your heating bills in the long run.
Reduce Heat Loss with Blinds
Blinds can provide a simple form of insulation for your home. When fitted closely to the window frame they can prevent draughts from entering the room, when the blind is fully closed, by trapping the air between the fabric and the window frame.
Made to measure blinds can be effective for creating the perfectly fitted blind for your window to help save energy. With the rise in energy costs, we understand how important it is to save money where we can, and we believe that the correct blind will help save you money long term during the colder months.
A good choice of blind for insulation is a Roman blind due to them being a thicker fabric than a roller blind. All of our Roman blinds are lined and offer simplicity with warmth and versatility. For maximum heat retention we suggest going for a blackout Roman blind as this will provide an additional layer at the window, ensuring a warm and cosy atmosphere.
Layering Curtains with Blinds for Optimal Thermal Insulation
Layering curtains over blinds is an excellent method for managing heat loss while adding a touch of luxury to your interior design. By combining textures, colours, patterns, and plains, you can achieve a cosy and stylish finish that also provides ultimate insulation.
For rooms that require both light control and warmth, pairing thermal curtains with blackout blinds is an effective solution. This combination is particularly useful for sunny bedrooms where you can reduce light levels to create a restful environment for a better night’s sleep, especially in the summer months with the lighter mornings.
