We all like to be as comfortable as possible when we are at home, and one of the biggest contributors to this is temperature. Wouldn’t it be great if there was some energy efficient way in which we could achieve this? The good new is that blackout curtains have an excellent insulating benefit.  They are great at deflecting heat in summer & also at trapping in the warmth during winter. Whether you have air conditioning or not, the blockouts will make an impact on the feeling of any room you have them in. This is especially true for rooms that receives a high level of direct sunlight.

This doesn’t mean that you need to keep your windows fully closed up all year round. Layering the blockout with a sheer allows you to decide how much light and heat you want to let in, while also keeping things private. Depending on the aesthetic needs or requests of individual clients we  recommend having the soft sheer at the front and then colour matching the blockout lining to the sheer so that they can compliment each other & your room. The block out being against the window goes a long way in controlling the temperature of your environment. 

If you are unsure of the best way to treat your window to maximise the insulation value without compromising on the look, just ask us and we can help you.
