Keeping Warm and Cosy

Ease into 2024 and beat the Winter chill with beautifully cocooning window treatments complementing your space.

As the dark days, chilly evenings, and wintry spells show no signs of disappearing, creating spaces we can hunker down in and shelter from the harsh elements is essential. With around 10% of your home’s heat escaping through windows and doors, it is crucial that your blinds and curtains are efficient at trapping heat inside the home. So, from selecting the correct lining to combining blinds and curtains, discover a few of our top tips for keeping the heat in below. Draw inspiration for your own window spaces and enjoy a warm and cosy space year after year.

Ensure Your Space Remains Visually Warming with Cocooning Palettes

Form a décor scheme that invites you in with open arms thanks to irresistible colour schemes.

Create a welcome contrast against bleak winter landscapes outside with warming Earth tones, spanning clay, ochre, and rouge. Coordinate with your wall colour for maximum impact. Alternatively, match with smaller soft furnishings in your space for a more subtle yet cosy look, keeping cocooned with waffle knit throws and inviting scatter cushions. The warming natural grain of wood is also ideal for adding a touch of sophistication and comfort, so look to Venetian Blinds in dark, rich shades of oak. Opt for Faux Wood Venetian blinds for higher moisture areas, or simply the added practicality of a wipe clean finish.

Winterproof Your Blinds With Effective Linings

Ensure your blinds are up to the task of insulating your space by pairing with linings designed to banish cold from your home.

Roman Blinds will not only look stylish and on-trend year-round, but can be paired with a plethora of linings for the cooler months. With a range to choose from, spanning thermal and blackout linings to bonded interlinings, there is an option for a range of spaces. Added benefits include light control and privacy, great for bedrooms or windows overlooking busy streets. Bolster the performance of your linings by making sure that your blind is fitted exactly to the measurements of your window space, preventing cold air from entering the room.

Combine Curtains and Blinds

Enjoy style and substance when pairing curtains with your blinds. Not only can they complement your décor scheme, but they are also great at preventing any air escaping through gaps between your blind and window space.

Ensure curtains are floor-length and wider than the window, acting as a barrier against escaping heat. Go one step further and opt for curtains with a thermal lining for added warmth and cosiness.

Let Daylight Pour in on Sunny Days

Make the most of the fleeting Winter sun by casting your curtains or blinds fully open on brighter days, soaking your space in warmth.

To prevent heat from escaping, be sure to close your blinds or curtains when the sun starts to set. We would advise keeping your blinds shut as much as possible during Winter, only opening them during sunnier intervals or through the daytime when temperatures are higher.
