Trends and tips
Radiators are often placed under windows and then covered up by heavy curtains that can stop the heat circulating properly. Roman blinds give the luxurious look of curtains but fit snugly into the window recess, and – according to research conducted by Nottingham University on behalf of Hillarys – are the most energy efficient blind type.
Batten down the hatches
Shutters are widely regarded as the ultimate window dressing – they provide great light control as well as excellent levels of privacy and security. They also offer good levels of insulation and are a great way to reduce noise – so ideal for a cosy night’s sleep.
If your windows are really draughty consider hanging blinds and curtains together to give extra warmth and insulation. Twice as nice, but twice the price you may be thinking? Not when you check out at Blinds-Supermarket.co.uk.
Why is it that however carefully we tuck them in at night, children always manage to kick their blankets off to let the cool night in? The insulating properties of a pleated or roman blind do help retain the heat to keep their room that bit warmer. Web-blinds.com has an extensive range to choose from and really easy to follow measuring and fitting instructions.
