It’s almost that time of year again – time to turn up the heating, get out the fluffy socks and cosy up for the winter.
Whilst the most winter redecorating you’re planning to do comes at Christmastime, there are certain simply and effective home improvements that you can make to make your home a little more winter-friendly. One such thing you can do to give your home that winter-ready feeling is invest in new soft furnishings – a plush rug, some brand new blankets and perhaps even a new pair of curtains.
Investing in some new curtains is a great idea at this time of year – and here’s why.
Re-Invent Your Colour Scheme
You don’t need to take on a full scale makeover in order to make a big difference to the way that your living space looks – just changing up your colour scheme using some subtle swaps can give a room a whole new look and feel.
Choosing some new curtains is a great way to transform the look of a room in a quick and simple way, as they tend to attract attention over other items within the room – especially longer curtains, or those cut in ‘heavier’ fabrics.
By bringing curtains and other soft furnishings in line with a new colour scheme, perhaps opting for warmer, earthier colours, you can give your room an overall cosier atmosphere. Then, when you want to create a lighter and airier space once the winter months pass, simply switch out your furnishings again!
Shut The World Out
Whilst the summer months are all about spending long, warm afternoons in beer gardens with friends and family, the winter months are often the exact opposite – by the time autumn is in full swing, most of us are happy to simply spend our evenings curled up on the sofa with a hot drink and a bingeworthy Netflix series.
So, why have the only barrier between you and the outside world be a pair of sheer or otherwise see-through curtains or blinds? Switching out your current curtains or shades for a pair that won’t allow others the chance to look in is the perfect way to create a feeling of being hidden away from the outside world for the evening – something we all appreciate during the winter, even after three lockdowns!
Invest in a pair of solid, lined curtains for maximum cosiness – we have a wide variety available here at NLW Curtains & Blinds.
Keep In The Heat
Did you know that curtains are one of the most effective tools that you can use to keep in the central heating?
If you find yourself turning up the thermostat in the winter but can rarely feel the benefit as strongly as you’d expect, it may be worth investing in a pair of thick, lined, high-quality curtains. Curtains provide a surprisingly effective barrier between the inside of your home and the outside, catching any warmth that may still find its way out through the windows – it’s always worth having curtains to help you keep the heat where it should be, within your home, if you’re worried about increasing energy bills this winter. It might not make a whole world of difference, but enough that you’ll certainly feel it.
For the most effective heat-trapping from curtains, pick out a lined, floor-length pair – we have several fantastic made-to-measure options available in a variety of attractive colours and fabrics.
