Have you turned your heating off yet?

Published by Emma Day in
With the sun shining through the office window today and the first signs of Spring slowly emerging from the Winter gloom, I’m itching to turn my heating off and lower those pesky energy bills.  How many of you feel the same?

The transitional period of Spring can often be a gamble with crisp, cool mornings turning into warm afternoons and nights retaining a mild chill.  It can be difficult to know how much heating you’ll need.  It could be time to look into alternative methods of keeping your home the right temperature and say goodbye to rising energy bills.

Try the curtain method! When the weather is a little milder one of the best courses of action is to turn off the radiators and reap the benefits of lined curtains.  Lined curtains are proven to reduce the amount of heat loss in your home by preventing warm air escaping and cool air getting in through your windows.


Not only are they great for heat control, you could kill two birds with one stone and refresh your home for the Spring.  Fresh, vibrant florals are popular this season, with modern and traditional designs available.  Look for soft, pastel palettes like greens and pinks for a typically feminine feel.  Or consider yellows and greys for more neutral appeal.


For added style and further protection from the cooler nights, you could even include blinds with your curtains.  The extra layer can really add depth and drama to your windows, especially when using co-ordinated fabrics.


So do your purse strings a favour and flick off the heating! Your home will be left prepared for Spring, looking fresh and your bills will be much kinder!  Click here to browse our curtain fabrics.
