September may seem like it’s way off in the distance but, before you know it, the kids will be back at school and it’ll be time to crank up the heating. So now is a great time to start thinking about how to prepare the home for the colder months and how to save some money when it comes to heating homes again.
The stunning range of heat-retaining Duette® blinds are now available in the hottest colours for autumn/winter – including Elan Raven (pictured), a gorgeous inky blue that’s set to have homeowners swooning.
Duette® blinds are the most energy efficient blinds on the market. Designed with effective insulating properties to keep homes warm, Duette® blinds can help to reduce annual heating bills by up to 25%. With between 20%-50% of domestic heat loss escaping through windows, insulated Duette® blinds are a great way to keep homes snug and fuel costs down.
With Duette®’s superior operating systems, adjusting numerous blinds in rooms with large glass expanses couldn’t get much simpler. Eliminating dangling wires, the Smartcord system features a retractable pull cord that effortlessly positions the blind with one simple tug.
Blackout versions are available but the semi-opaque fabric option allows light to ripple through during daylight hours, whilst still conserving heat at the window. Semi-opaque fabric also offers exciting colour projection, allowing beautiful hues of dappled light to flood the home.
When considering heat-retaining window blinds, consumers are often concerned that in closing blinds to conserve heat, views of the great outdoors and natural lighting can no longer be enjoyed.
However, Duette® offers a top-down/bottom-up design, where blinds do not have to be fully closed to conserve heat. Blinds can be moved to various points in the frame to enjoy the best of worth worlds, whilst also gaining total privacy control.
They look stunning in the bedroom and kitchen, and Duette® blinds are also a great choice for conservatories – rooms that can get unbearably hot in summer and too cold during the winter months, draining domestic heat via their large glass expanses.
