Preparing For Winter with Curtains & Linings

April 6, 2018

How will you keep your home warm this winter?

With winter on the way, now’s the time to start preparing your home to keep out the chill. Before you turn on those heaters, however, one of the first things you should look at are your curtains.

Proper insulating curtains can make a significant difference to your house in winter, helping to create a cosy environment that you’ll be happy to come home to. Our range of quality curtain fabric and linings can help.

How do curtains help to keep my home warm?

Curtains can keep your home toasty and warm on those chilly days by reducing the heat lost through your windows. In winter, up to 40 per cent of your home’s heat can leak out through the windows according to Your Energy Savings.

When you install good curtains, you can retain heat in the room by trapping a layer of air between the fabric and the window. Heavier fabrics and layered curtains are particularly good at helping to seal in the warmth.

If you’re looking for appropriate fabric to replace your lightweight summer drapes, we have a wide range of fabrics on offer from all Fabric Houses.

If you already have quality drapes, but you’re looking for something a little more insulating for winter, our range of quality curtain linings from Charles Parsons could be the perfect addition. Our Bumph lining comes in three variations, European, Micro and Standard, offering a versatile solution in either cotton or polyester to suit any curtains. The fabric is also noise reducing, which is always a bonus if you live on a busy road.

Our versatile Guardian Plus curtain lining is another fantastic option, available in either one or three-pass coating of Supersoft Suede┬«. While any coating will help in an insulative capacity, the more ‘passes’ a lining has, the better it will perform at blocking out light. This is not only a welcome feature in terms of preventing light leaks in home entertainment areas and bedrooms, it can also prevent harmful UV rays from damaging your interior upholstery fabrics.

With the right curtains, you can not only transform your interior space, you can also help to keep your home warmer in winter and save a little money on heating bills in the process!
