Thermal Drapes and Shades

Posted by admin 19/12/2015 0 Comment(s) Design Tips,

One of the best ways to save energy bills is by installing thermal drapes.  Old or drafty windows and doors are one of the most wasteful energy outlets.  Installing thermal drapes will help keep your house cool during summer and warm during winter.  With todays modern designs, there are tons of options for stylish and functional window treatments.

Unlike in the past, thermal drapes available today come in many styles.  Various textures, colors, and designs are available in nice designer fabrics.  Not only can you get thermal protection in curtains, you can also find energy efficient roman shades.  With curtains, ensure that you order curtains that fit the size of your window properly.  Add at least 6 inches on each side of the window and enough length to cover the top of the window to the bottom of the floor.  This will help prevent drafts from seeping around the curtains.

Custom roman shades are very energy efficient when ordered to fit for your exact window dimensions.  The most popular roman shade that provide thermal protection is the flat roman shade.  This shade is tailored to fit inside your window without allowing any gaps like other design shades such as the relaxed roman shade. 

In general, thermal drapes and shades are a lot heavier than the usual drapes. These drapes are specially designed with a special thermal lining to block out the exterior heat or cold. Even though the drapes are heavy, they are very durable, and easy to clean. Some can be washed but most must be dry cleaned to prevent shrinkage and damage. 

Thermal drapes are a great investment that will rapidly help you keep the home warm even on the coldest winter night.
