Keep the winter chill outside of your home by covering your windows with warmer, smarter options. Whether you prefer a more design-driven option or a heavier thermal choice, there are plenty of ways you can keep your home toasty for the holidays and beyond.
Double up on heavy fabrics over your windows to keep drafts out. They make a design statement while keeping your home comfortable so you can save on energy.
Curtains with built-in thermal backing can insulate your home the best. While they may not be the cheapest, they sure do block out cold air and act as a benefit through the winter months.
The darker the color of your window treatments, the more sunlight and heat they will absorb.
Heavily Woven Fabrics
Not all curtain fabrics are meant to keep cold air out. Choose thick fabrics such as velvet, tweed, and tapestry. Cotton blends and canvas could also provide limited warmth.
Place a fabric tub on your window sill to prevent cold air from creeping in through the tiniest of openings. You can make these yourself or purchase at your local home decor store.
