You already know that custom curtains and drapes can add to the aesthetic of your New York home, but did you also know these coverings can save you money by cutting your heating costs? Keep warm all winter long with the right window fashions. Recently, LivingGreenMag.com spelled out the best window coverings to use during the winter months. Take a look at the selections below:
Types of Custom Curtains
- Blinds: Blinds are very practical in many rooms of your house, ranging from the kitchen to the bathroom. These features allow you to let light in at your liking and close up with ease when you need privacy.
- Drapes: Aside from being a gorgeous addition to your living room, draperies can also help retain heat in the winter. To fully maximize the power of your drapes, try using two drapery panels instead of one and be sure to close your window coverings after the sun sets so heat doesn’t escape.
- Film: “High-reflectivity films on your windows cut the glare of the sun and allow rays to bounce off the window,” Emily Green, freelance writer for the new source says. “Reflective film is a more permanent solution than blinds, shade and draperies, because you cannot remove film to allow more light to enter.”
