Wondering what to do about your current window dressing? Climate change has brought with it extreme weather conditions and searing heat in summer. Where our much loved drapes with gauzy back curtains once did the job, they don’t seem to be up to the new conditions and something has to be done to improve our indoor comfort. The question is what should we replace them with that will look stylish, be practical solutions and not cost too much. With the variety in window solutions nowadays it isn’t like we are stuck for an answer, we just need to match our needs to what we choose.
With a wide variety of window covering to choose from in local and online blinds, and various styles in each variety, life is so much easier. From the popular venetian blinds, roller blinds, shutters and drapes, all we need to do is see what fills our needs, choose the colour to suit our interior decor and have them installed. Venetian blinds have been popular for many years and are now available in aluminium, timber and synthetic materials which have great thermal insulating qualities.
