Window Blinds

We have to mention blinds of course! Ideal for keeping the draught out by covering your window, there are a lot of timeless options that would be a great addition to keep a cosy home. Our Roller blinds and Roman blinds are a fabulous choice. The fabric of Roman blinds is thick and acts as a canvas for your window. Fitting your blinds outside the recess creates a barrier for your window, keeping the drift out of your space. Another bonus is that it does not disturb your window ledge decoration. Roller blinds are a great option as this blind also is thick enough to create an obstacle to the cold outside. A great option to retain heat within your space.

Double Duvet

Rearranging your furniture

Now is the time to move your furniture out of the way of your radiators to allow for the heat to circulate your room. With furniture in the way, it creates a blockage, meaning you are not getting the most out of your radiator when the heating is on.

Draft Excluders

There are a few options that you can implement in your home to prevent drafts from ruining your cosy home. One way that a draft will get into your home is through an open keyhole. A very affordable fix is to buy a keyhole cover. You may not think it would lose you much heat but having an exposed keyhole does let allow the heat to seep out. Another example is a draft excluder cushion. These usually come in the form of a long cushion that is weighted to have maximum heat retention as it lay along the bottom of a door frame. Lastly, a cheap alternative is draft sealers. These can be used around windows or doors to again, block out any unwanted drafts. A very effective and discrete way.
