Best Blinds for Keeping Warm in Winter

Keep your household cosy and warm in winter with these three energy efficient window treatments.

Best Blinds for Keeping Warm in Winter

Did you know that up to 35% of the heat in your home can disappear via the windows and doors? Rather than cranking up the heat and making your energy bill skyrocket, it might be worth investing in some energy efficient blinds. After all, there’s no better feeling than keeping cosy and warm in winter!

Insulating blinds for a cosy home

When it comes to a window treatment’s ability to provide insulation, it all comes down to the seal around the window frame, in addition to the thickness of the material that the blind or curtain is made from.

Of course, while we don’t recommend that you go out and immediately replace all your existing blinds or curtains, it’s certainly worth considering the following products if you don’t currently have any window treatments installed.

Here are the top three window treatments in our product range that provide the best window insulation.

Double Roller Blinds

With twice the functionality of a regular roller blind, double roller blinds are one of the most functional ways to manage heat and light in your home. Once installed, these insulating blinds have the ability to completely block the sun and light, filter warm sunshine through your windows and preserve warmth in your home.

You can customise your double rollers with your choice of any two fabrics, with the most popular option being the combination of sunscreen fabric and blockout fabric. Find out more about your options for custom roller blinds here.

Blockout Roman Blinds

Modern Roman blinds are more than just a great blind for your living room. They can also be incredibly energy efficient when custom made with blockout or blackout fabric!

These thermal blinds consist of large fabric panels mounted onto slats which are pulled together by a chain. Their simple, compact design makes them an affordable option for covering large sections of windows and doors. Plus, once installed, blockout Roman blinds will provide insulation against the windows. Not only will this keep the room cooler in summer and warmer in winter, this will also help to reduce energy bills throughout the year.

Blockout Curtains

Functionality aside, curtains are one of the best window treatments for creating the appearance of a cosy home (you can learn more about the different styles of curtains we offer here). And, luckily for our chattering teeth, they also offer a decent level of window insulation.

In addition to giving you complete light control, curtains custom made with blockout or blackout fabric help to regulate the temperature in your home. When it’s cooler outside, the thick lined fabric traps warmth inside the home. Then, during the warmer months, the blockout curtains can be drawn to keep hot air from seeping into your home through the windows.

Tip: Request to have your curtains fitted inside a pelmet, and wider and higher than your window to increase their insulating powers.

Additional way to stay warm in winter

If you are in the process of building a home from the ground up, it might be worth double glazing your window glass. While it’s a tad pricier compared to simply installing insulating blinds, it’s definitely an effective insulating method!
