With winter approaching, it’s time to prepare your home to keep out cold and keep in warmth. Apart from sweeping your chimney, inspecting the roof and turning off any outdoor faucets, don’t forget to cover your windows to seal out cold air. After all, getting caught off guard by a chill from drafty windows is the last thing you want. If you are wondering about your options, we have put together a list of window coverings to keep your home warm as the temperature drops outside.

7 Window Treatments to Keep Your Home Warm in Winter

1) Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are the most energy-efficient window treatments. They help block heat in summer while maintaining a comfortable temperature inside in winter. Also known as honeycomb shades, these window coverings feature a honeycomb design that creates an air pocket between the window glass and your home’s interior that prevents heat from escaping, thus acting as an insulator. These shades not only create a cozy environment inside your room but also up the style game of your home décor. They are available in a wide range of layering options including single and double cell. It is advisable to go for double cell shades for winter as these provide better insulation.

2) Draperies

Draperies are a great way to add extra insulation on top of an existing window treatment, like blinds or shades. They allow you to control the temperature inside and prevent heat loss in winter. Plus, you can choose from a wide range of colours and fabrics to match them with your décor. No matter what you choose as the first layer of insulation to cover your windows in colder months, draperies increase its efficiency.

3) Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters might not seem like an effective solution to cover your windows when the temperature drops. However, they tend to have far fewer gaps compared to other window treatments as they are installed tight to the window frame. Closed louvres create a barrier to prevent warm air from escaping or cold air getting in. Now the question arises: which is better – vinyl or wood shutters? The answer: they are equally energy efficient. If you want to add natural warmth and beauty to your home décor, wood shutters are a good pick.

4) Roman Shades

If you are looking for a versatile window covering option that offers both aesthetic appeal and insulation, your search ends at roman shades. They are made of thick material and their sealed edges help keep out cold. If you want extra protection from icy weather, shades with a thermal backing create a soft, comfortable feel in your home while keeping the temperature at the desired level.

5) Solar Blinds

Solar blinds help stabilize temperatures in summer by acting as a shield against ultraviolet (UV) rays. But did you know that these blinds can be reversed to filter out UV damage as well as generate heat by acting as a passive solar collector? This is an excellent window covering option to block out icy cold weather as it absorbs sunlight and converts it into interior radiant heat to keep you warm and cozy.

6) Insulated Curtains

Insulated curtains are lined curtains meant to keep warm air from leaving and cold air from entering through your windows. Aside from helping maintain moderate temperatures inside your home, they reduce pressure on your HVAC system. They sometimes have a magnetic strip sewn into their edges so that they stick around the window frame, thus creating a tighter barrier.

7) Combination Window Coverings

To winterize your windows and maximize your energy efficiency, you can experiment by layering window treatments. A combination of window coverings is a great idea to increase insulation. Some options include cellular shades and drapes, shutters and roman shades, and horizontal blinds and curtains.

Additional Tips to Cover Your Windows When the Temperature Drops (Apart from Window Treatments)

  • Apply transparent window insulation film in pre-cut sections to the outside of your window frame. You simply attach it to the frame with double-sided tape and blow warm air over the film using a hairdryer to tighten it. The dead air pocket created between the film and window will provide insulation.
  • Filling gaps around the window frame with polyurethane or expandable spray foam will keep out cold winds.
  • Use weather strips to seal windows. They are available in various sizes with adhesive backing on one side for easy application.

Ideally, you should insulate your windows before cold weather sets in. So, it’s a good idea to not only start covering them now with the window treatment options mentioned in this blog but to use the additional tips to maximize insulation.  These ideas will make your living space cozier, while also increasing its energy efficiency.

11 Things That Make Your Home Look Outdated (and How to Fix Them)

Not all home design trends stick around. Eventually, they are replaced by new ones. Some homeowners are expert at keeping up with the latest styles, while others live with outdated décor and designs which they later regret. If you don’t want such regrets, it’s time you identify the eyesores in your living space and give your home an update. Here’s a list of eleven ways your home looks outdated and how to fix them. What Things Can Make Your Living Space Look Old Learn how these obsolete design features can be fixed. 1) Dark Wood Paneling Dark wood paneling was fabulous in the ‘70s but today makes a room look dull and dated. To fix this, go for neutral or brightly painted walls that complement or contrast sleek modern furniture. 2) Mini Blinds Gone are the days when mini blinds were the preferred window treatments among homeowners. If you have these blinds, you probably know they are easily damaged and create strange shadows. To up your décor game, choose sleek fabric shades like solar and roller shades to make your room not only stylish but functional. They control light and privacy and are easy to operate, making them one of the trendiest window coverings.   3) Tile Countertops Tile kitchen countertops were trendy in the ‘70s but no more. They are cost-effective but outdated so will ruin the beauty of your kitchen. They’re also difficult to clean and must be completely replaced if damaged. Want to make a style statement? Replace your tile countertop with granite or marble. 4) Brass Fixtures and Hardware When was the last time you took a close look at your light fixtures and kitchen? If you’re surrounded by brass fixtures and hardware, you’re still living in the ‘80s. Instead, go contemporary by upgrading to plumbing fixtures, hardware and lighting in stainless steel, brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze. 5) Nautical Motifs Nautical motifs like seashells, anchors and sailor’s rope are a big no-no if you’re trying to decorate your home according to the latest trends. Even if you live close to water, ocean-inspired décor is unacceptable. Instead choose subtler elements like driftwood and coral to achieve a beachy vibe without overdoing it.   6) White Appliances Have a white refrigerator or dishwasher? Bid them adieu to not make your living space look old. Kitchen appliances in stainless steel, sleek slate, and matte black finishes are in vogue and give your home décor an updated appearance. Plus, they are easier to clean. 7) Chevron Wallpaper Unless you want a retro look, it’s time to do away with your chevron wallpaper. Replace it with a fresh coat of paint and your home will seem brand new. 8) Matching Window Valances When your window valances match your curtains and your curtains match your upholstery, you have arrived in the past. These eyesores are sure to disappoint every interior décor lover. Swap this monotonous arrangement with solid curtains and patterned valances in contrasting colours for a modern, updated window …

How to Choose the Perfect Curtains for Your Living Space

Curtains are the go-to window treatment because of their versatility, visual appeal and practicality.  Ready-made and custom varieties are available in a wide array of colours, fabrics, lengths and linings. They can transform the appearance of any room, provided they are chosen correctly. But finding the perfect curtains from the plethora of options out there can be overwhelming. So, we asked our window covering pros to narrow down your search by compiling this guide. Have a look. A Comprehensive Guide to Choosing Awesome Curtains for Your Home Fabric and Weight Fabric plays a vital role in determining the look, feel and functionality of curtains which is why it should be your priority when buying window treatments. If the fabric is too heavy, the curtains will not fold crisply when drawn, and too light a fabric will be difficult to handle. Linen, silk, velvet and sheers are some of the most common curtain fabrics, and each has distinct features, outlined below: Linen offers a crisp, classic look, making it perfect for simple curtains and draperies. It has enough weight to puddle on the floor, giving a voluminous look, and is a good pick for homes with minimalist décor. However, an extra layer is advisable for privacy and to block light. Velvet is a heavy, thick material that insulates. It’s ideal for patio doors and drafty windows as it helps maintain the temperature in winter. This fabric comes in a wide range of vibrant colours to match your home’s existing colour scheme. Plus, it offers a lot of privacy and can keep out most light. Silk curtains are the preferred choice for homeowners who want to give their windows a luxurious look. This fabric has a sumptuous weight that adds an instant sense of luxury. The intense, rich dyes of numerous colours make this fabric a treat for the eyes. Silk is a great choice for pleated curtains with long panels that puddle on the floor. Decorating silk curtains with valances is considered the best combination. However, they need to be protected from direct sunlight to avoid discolouration. Sheers are lightweight and give a billowing effect. If you want to give your windows a casual look, sheer curtains are your best bet. They neither provide privacy nor block light but offer ample chances to experiment with colour, weave and shimmer. Colour and Pattern Picking the perfect curtain colour depends on several factors, including the purpose of the room, your home décor, window placement and the stylistic statement you want to make. Here are a few tips to choose the right colour. You can either go for a complementary shade that accentuates your existing colour scheme or create a unique vibe by choosing a hue that doesn’t tie in with what you currently have. If your room is decorated in a formal manner, patterned or printed curtains will add colour and texture to the space, thus giving a dramatic effect. Avoid bright colours when installing curtains on a window that receives maximum sunlight as …
