Blinds to Keep Your House Warm This Winter

If you think only curtains can keep your home warm in winter you’re so wrong. Blinds have often had a bad rap in the past for their austere and clinical appearance. But that’s in the past, in the bad old days before the rich, versatile range of blinds we have today became available. There’s such a vast choice of styles, colours, patterns and fabrics, you’re guaranteed stylish window coverage and guaranteed warmth.

Central Heating isn’t Always Enough

Gradually, the weather will get colder, and as it does, you’ll be looking for ways to save energy and not rely too much on artificial heating. And although central heating will keep your home warm it won’t completely stop heat escaping. With blinds, and their ability to fit the windows so accurately and snuggly, you’ll be able to turn the heating down and save money.

Blinds To Suit Your Needs

Naturally, it makes sense to choose blinds which best suit the needs of the particular room you’re having them fitted. To retain heat effectively, then your blinds will need to unslatted, therefore you should be looking to choose either Roman or roller blinds.

Roman Blinds

these are great for keeping a room warm. There are various fabrics and colours to choose from and often come with a variety of different pattern designs. They fold up like an accordion and go up or down, they’ll straighten as they move down and look extremely elegant as well as being practical. In winter you could choose warm colours, like brown, orange or dark reds, anything that brings out the colours of autumn and winter.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds go up or down. They’re also extremely elegant and sophisticated and really give your room that sophisticated look. They’re easy to manipulate and really help to keep your rooms insulated from the cold. Again, they come in a variety of colours, fabrics and patterns, so whatever your interior décor, there’ll be something that works.

If you’re in a part of the country that really suffers during the winter months and experience really cold temperatures, then our blinds offer a great way of keeping the rooms in your home warm, and help to keep your energy bills down.
