Are you feeling the winter chill yet? We’ve certainly noticed it getting colder, and we’re thinking about making changes to our window dressings to keep us warm throughout the season.
It’s that time of year when we’re all adding blankets and throws to our homes so that we can cosy up in front of the fire, and we know that window dressings can make a huge difference to how comfortable we feel. We love darker, thicker fabrics, and styles that are designed to hold heat in are perfect for Winter.
Window Dressings For Cold Winters
Here at Direct Blinds Cork, we have a wide range of blinds that can keep you warmer in the winter, and our staff are always happy to help you find the best options for your home and your lifestyle. We recommend the following window dressing ideas to increase the cosiness in your home!
1. Try BlocOut Blinds. Roller blinds are the height of practicality, and offer an excellent solution for any room that requires a good level of flexibility with light and privacy, such as a bedroom or playroom. Our BlocOut blinds are designed to retain heat, saving you money on your heating bills and ensuring you stay toasty this winter!
2. Invest in Plantation shutters. Plantation shutters give you a long-lasting, stylish answer to the problem of losing heat through your windows. Fitting plantation shutters that will last as long as your home is an investment and will be appreciated by your visitors as well as your family. You’ll love our great range of colours and designs, and you’ll be surprised by the difference shutters can make to the warmth within your home.
3. Add layers. Many of us adhere to the principle of layering when it comes to clothing, but when we think about window dressing, we forget all about this idea. However, layers can make all the difference when you want to keep your home warm. If you have opted for something classic and stylish, such as a roman blind, you can add a room darkening or blackout liner. These can really help to control the amount of light that comes into the room, and will also help to prevent heat loss and keep your home warmer.
4. Consider pleated blinds. Pleated blinds offer an elegant option that works well with black out or privacy liners, too. You can choose from a wide range of colours and styles, and these blinds will give you great insulation as well as an attractive way to dress your windows.
