With the rise in energy prices in the UK, keeping your house warm without turning the heating on is becoming as important as ever before. Whether you have a cool bedroom, a loft, an attic, or a large room facing north, you can make your space warmer by eliminating any drafts. You need to carefully select curtains and curtain hardware designed to keep the heat inside. Here are the 6 best window coverings to keep cold out.
1. Thermal lining for curtains or blinds
First and foremost, start with thermal (blackouts also do the job) lining. Whether you prefer curtains or Roman blinds, each type has thermal fabric. This additional lining is a barrier that stops drafts from a window keeping heat; this is precisely what we are after. And don’t worry about appearance - the lining is attached from the back and is completely hidden by the front fabric.
