How can we help..
Perhaps one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to add warmth and to retain heat is through your window coverings. One of the first points to consider should be your choice of drapes or blinds.
Insulated thermal blinds or drapes can make a significant difference to your home, helping to create a cosy environment.
How do linings assist in keeping your home warm?
- Linings can keep your home toasty and warm on those chilly days, by reducing the heat lost through your windows. In winter – up to 40 percent of your home’s heat can leak out through the windows, directly affecting your energy costs.
- When you install good quality drapes and linings, you can retain heat by insulating the room – trapping a layer of air between the fabric and the window.
- Heavier drapes and layered curtains are particularly good at helping to seal in the warmth.
We would be thrilled to assist you in making the right decisions when it comes to your window treatment solutions.
