How much do curtains and blinds cost?
There’s actually a sub question to this which is, ‘How much extra could it cost to not have good curtains and blinds?’ Let’s touch on that first…
You can reduce your carbon footprint and save money on those power bills by stopping cold air from travelling into your home and preventing warm air escaping through the windows with good window treatments.
Curtains and drapes are great insulators. To maximise their effectiveness we recommend lined drapes and curtains be floor length. Seeing as warm air rises the floor is the coldest point in the room so having the curtains or drapes touching or puddling the fabric on the floor stops cold air from seeping into the room.
Having properly lined drapes is also a must. Not only does the lining increase the thermal effectiveness by adding a second layer of fabric, they also fall and hang softer than coated or triple weave fabrics.
Further advantages to good lining include:
- Noise reduction
- Room darkening
- Light filtration
Adding in a 100% polyester lining protects your drapes, your carpet and your furniture from the sun’s harsh rays, making them look better and last longer. Team that up with a sunscreen roller blind to help filter sunlight and keep your home cooler in summertime.
