What are the best blinds to use in the winter?

27/08/2020

It’s been a toasty summer this year, but with most of us in the UK being stuck in doors due to lockdown, we’ve had to adapt our homes to cope with the heat; thin curtains, and windows open! But with Autumn and Winter on the horizon in the UK, it’s time to start thinking about flipping the script, and preparing your home for the dreaded cold. 

Most people know that of the most effective ways to insulate your home is through stopping as much cold air coming through your windows as possible – and one of the ways you may do this is by using thick curtains, however if you are not wanting to add big heavy dressing to your interior, blinds can be the ideal solution. So, what are the best blind to use for the winter? Read on.

Roller Blinds

As well as adding a timeless look to any room, roller blinds can help reduce the amount of warmth lost through your windows. This is because they are made from one piece of material, so there are no gaps for heat to escape through. Using our free, no obligation measuring and consultation service, you can have your roller blinds produced to a perfect fit for your windows. You can also kick back and save yourself a job of rolling the blinds by opting for our automated roller blinds.

Blackout Blinds

Blackout blinds are a great option for helping to your room toasty in the winter as they are made from a thicker material than normal blinds. Traditional blackout roller blinds combine a standard roller blind with blackout material and there is typically a 15mm leak light into the room from all four edges, providing a nice, warm rest during those winter evenings. At Broadview we design and install blackout blinds in Bournemouth and Poole in Dorset and across Hampshire and Wiltshire.

Roman Blinds

Combining practicality with style and elegance, Roman blinds are ideal for keeping the heat in. Just like roller blinds, Roman blinds are made from one singular piece of fabric - so you don’t need to worry about heat escaping. Bring warmth and sophistication to your home with high quality made to measure Roman blinds from Broadview.
