Made-to-Measure Blinds – Keep Cooler this Summer
Summer weather will hopefully seems be on its way to the UK, and that means it’s time for smart homeowners and flat dwellers to make sure they are doing everything they can to keep their homes as cool as possible this summer.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, most people can expect to save anywhere from £10 to £50 per year on their utility bills simply by draught-proofing around windows and exterior doors. Those with a bigger budget might consider having double-glazed windows installed, but for many, this is simply too much of an undertaking both financially and logistically.
Yet another way to keep your home cool in the summer is simply by ordering made-to-measure blinds for the windows and exterior doors which provide superior coverage and insulation compared to most models available in home improvement stores.
When it comes to keeping the home cooler in the summer, the benefits of made-to-measure blinds are twofold: darker colours will block out more sunlight, and made-to-measure blinds will cover the windows and doors more completely, allowing fewer rays of sunlight to enter through cracks or around the edges of blinds.
Types of blinds that one might consider for this purpose include pleated blinds and blinds which are custom built to fit the window with their own frame. Many excellent models are available which do not require drilling into your existing windows or otherwise voiding the warranty, so if you do already have plans to install replacement windows, then custom blinds would be ideal!
The Beautiful Blind Company has been installing made-to-measure blinds in homes and offices in the Northeast for many years.
