At André’s Blinds & Shutters, we know that a warm and cosy home is essential in the British Wintertime! With this in mind, we only recommend and supply our customers with the best energy-saving products, in line with the most recent scientific research undertaken by the British Blinds and Shutters Association (BBSA). So, without further ado, here are our top five recommendations for Winter window warmers!
Curtains add an instant layer of warmth to your windows, not to mention the cosy array of decorative patterns and fabrics that we can provide them in! What’s more, they can also be supplied with custom headrails to match up with your existing décor. Drawing your curtains at dusk can reduce heat loss by up to 20%, making a noticeable difference to the warmth of the room as you settle down to enjoy your evening. Our Curtains can be fitted with either blackout or thermal depending on your unique requirements! Overall, the all-around cosy and luxurious feel that curtains can give to a room cannot be underestimated.
Unsure on Curtains? Would you prefer a softer, more streamlined energy-saving solution? Roman blinds could be just what you’re looking for! Romans are a space- saving and tidy alternative to Curtains which are also very effective energy-savers. Like Curtains, our Roman blinds are also available in a wide range of cosy fabrics and trendy patterns capable of reducing heat loss by up to 21%! Additionally, they’re supplied with blackout lining as standard (thermal lining available upon request) with the additional option of high-quality chrome accessories to finish off your look!
Pleated blinds provide a more modern look that sits neatly within the recess of your window, offering neat and innovative window solutions in a range of matching fabrics. These high-quality blinds are made from robust fabrics which spring back into shape easily if knocked. Our pleated fabric options include simple weave, textured, crushed or plain and patterned designs. More than just beautiful fabrics, this collection also boasts a range of performance enhancing features. Complete with a cutting edge ‘honeycomb’ design that traps air in an insulating layer, preventing any loss of valuable heat. Honeycomb technology is designed to trap air and can reduce heat loss by up to 32%!
