Where is that breeze coming from?

Have you ever been sitting comfortably on your couch when, all of a sudden, you get blasted with cold air?  Then you hold out your hand and track the breeze to the source only to realize it’s coming from your windows.  Well we have three quick insulation solutions that will keep you warm all winter and help keep your energy costs down.

 

First up are cellular shades.  Long regarded as the premier shade for energy efficiency and insulation, cellulars are a great option if you’re looking to keep costs down and comfort up.  We offer both a 3/4 single cell and a 3/8 double cell option. If insulation is a top priority, our 3/8″ Double Cellular Shade is the way to go. The double layer of cells traps twice the air and offers maximum energy efficiency.  Continuous loop, top down bottom up and cordless options are available.  Choose from 25+ Eco-friendly materials.

Next up are drapes.  Nothing stops a cold breeze like heavy drapes. Selecting a blackout or privacy lining will ensure minimal heat loss from your home. In addition to our standard all cotton privacy lining, our cotton flannel interlining was made popular in England where it was used to help keep large drafty estates, flats and fine homes warm during the long cold winters.  Our drapery is available in 8 unique styles and 300+ exclusive materials.

Lastly, we have our Roman Shades in 6 distinct styles and 300+ unique fabrics.  Selecting a heavy fabric and a free lining option (blackout lining or privacy + interlining are best) will provide you and your home with an additional layer of protection from cold winter weather.
