Keeping your home warm in Winter0
Curtains not only style your window, they insulate better than any other type of window covering. Made to measure curtains that are lined and professionally fitted retain maximum warmth and minimize draughts in winter. In summer they will eliminate the hot summer heat from entering your home, thus keeping it cooler. You will be amazed how much you will save on your energy bills!
The hottest trend is a sheer with a thermal lining using double tracking. This allows you to use the sheer during the day with the option to bring the lining across on a night for warmth and privacy.
The range of sheers on the market today is huge. A popular trend is textural linen look fabrics which come in a range of colours ranging from neutral whites, soft greys, dark charcoal greys through to black.
You only have to look at the renovation home shows on TV to see the extent of using layering window furnishings today and the reason that is because it adds softness and a sense of luxury to the homes they are renovating at a reasonable price.
Home renovators are always on a budget and with that in mind you will find that custom made curtaining is cheaper than putting shutters in your home.
If you already have blinds or shutters in your home another option for you to provide a thermally effect solution is to add another layer over your existing blinds or shutter. This style solution softens the harshness of shutters and blinds and adds a thermal quality to your window furnishings as well as beautifying the room. These drapes can be colour coordinated with your existing blinds and shutters with the result adding a warm and cosy feel to your home.
