Window blinds are a great way to help your home retain heat and keep your family warm this winter, but which blinds are the best candidates for the job? Here’s the lowdown.
With winter right around the corner, transforming your home into a cosy haven should be at the top of your to-do list.
From chunky knit blankets and fluffy throw pillows to a warm colour pallet and insulated windows, these are all great ways to keep your space warm during the colder weather, but have you paid much thought to your blinds?
Not only are they an essential privacy feature and the best way to regulate the amount of light flowing into your home, but they’re also a great way to control the temperature of a room.
But which window blinds are best for the job? Our experts here at Galaxy Blinds reveal all in this post.
Combining practicality with a touch of elegance, Roman blinds do an excellent job of keeping the heat in.
Being made from a singular piece of fabric, you won’t have to worry about any warmth escaping through slats, and you can choose from a range of thermal fabrics, colours and designs to coordinate with the rest of your décor.
We also offer matching curtains and cushions, which are great for adding an extra layer of warmth to your space, and perfect if you’re a bit OTT about having matching furnishings.
Popular with nightshift workers, blackout blinds aren’t just great for blocking out light when you’re trying to catch forty winks.
Because they’re made from a much thicker material than typical Roman or roller blinds, they’re also ideal if you’re looking to trap more heat in your home and save yourself some dough on your energy bills this winter.
When thinking of blackout blinds, lots of people picture dark, chunky roller blinds and while this can work wonderfully for some, others might find that it takes away from the rest of their décor.
Not to worry, though – we have a variety of styles and colours to choose from that will fit perfectly in with the rest of your interior, while keeping your home cosy and warm.
This means that, if it isn’t insulated well enough, you’re likely to lose heat through your roof. And the same goes for any windows in your ceilings.
Skylight windows are great for increasing the amount of light flowing through your home but keeping them covered is a must if you want to keep your space warm.
If you have windows in your ceiling, Velux blinds are specifically designed to fit them perfectly, to keep warmth contained in your home and (potentially) help you cut your heating costs.
Similar to Roman-style blinds, roller blinds add timeless beauty to any room whilst also helping to reduce the amount of warmth lost through your windows.
Our made-to-measure roller window blinds are guaranteed to fit your windows perfectly and eliminate any gaps at the top, bottom or sides, to ensure that the heat stays in and the cold stays out.
