Winter has finally arrived, which means the festive season is well and truly upon us. While there is a lot to love about the festive season, one thing that most people can agree on is that the colder weather isn’t that enjoyable
Temperatures are rapidly dropping, with most households cranking up their heating, digging out the winter blankets, and doing whatever they can to make their home that bit warmer over the winter. One surprisingly effective way to keep your home warm this festive season is by using the right type of blinds, with Roman blinds being some of the best window coverings for cold weather.
Why Roman blinds?
So, you may be wondering why on earth something as simple as blinds can help keep your home warm this winter, and the answer is quite straight-forward – blinds offer great insulation. For blinds to be able to insulate your home, they can’t have any slats in their design, making Roman blinds the best choice for insulation.
How do Roman blinds keep a room warm?
There are two main ways Roman blinds keep a room warm. As mentioned before, they offer fantastic insulation, meaning they keep out cold air that comes into contact with the outside of your windows.
This is a big issue in the winter, as the outdoor temperatures drop much quicker due to the shorter days, and the temperatures go much lower with it being winter. So, without some proper blinds covering the window, the cold air outside can make the inside colder!
Another way that Roman blinds keep a room warm is by creating a barrier inside. The fabric of the blind covers the entire window, meaning that warm air from inside the room takes longer to meet with the colder window pane, preventing the warm air from being cooled down.
As a result, your rooms may require less heating to stay warm, or you can ensure that your room is extra warm and toasty thanks to added insulation from the Roman blinds.
Insulated Roman Blinds
While most Roman blinds offer great insulation on their own, buying specially insulated Roman blinds greatly increases their effectiveness. Often called thermal Roman blinds, they come with several layers of treated fabrics that offer incredible insulation, so when installed the heat loss in any room is significantly reduced.
Therefore, if you want to keep your home as warm as possible this festive season with Roman blinds, be sure to consider those that are made from thermal fabrics for that added insulation.
