Top tips for choosing window furnishings for your home.

There are many reasons we add window furnishings to our homes. More often that not, we want to make our bedrooms dark at night for restful sleep, however the right window treatments can assist in effective energy savings all year round.

Insulation: Window furnishings act as a layer of insulation, helping to reduce heat transfer between the inside and outside of a room. During hot weather, they can block direct sunlight and prevent solar heat gain, keeping the room cooler. In cold weather, they provide an additional barrier against heat loss, helping to keep the room warmer.

Sunlight control: By adjusting window furnishings, you can control the amount of sunlight entering a room. Direct sunlight can significantly increase the temperature inside a room, especially during the hot summer months. Window furnishings allow you to block or filter sunlight, reducing the heat generated and maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature.

Energy efficiency: Effective window furnishings can contribute to energy efficiency in a building. By reducing heat gain or loss through windows, they can lessen the reliance on heating and cooling systems, thus reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills. This is especially important in climates with extreme temperatures.

Privacy and ventilation control: Window furnishings also provide privacy and allow you to control airflow. By adjusting blinds, curtains, or external awnings, you can determine the amount of natural ventilation entering the room without compromising privacy. This enables you to maintain a comfortable temperature while controlling fresh air circulation.

Aesthetics and light control: Window furnishings play a role in the overall aesthetics of a room. They can enhance the interior design, add visual appeal, and contribute to the desired ambiance. We can offer a range of products from the simple roller blind or venetian blind through to motorised systems for curtains and awnings.

The effectiveness of window furnishings in controlling room temperature may depend on factors such as the type of window, the quality of your window furnishings, the material used, and of course, the climate conditions.
