At this time of year, our homes offer a sanctuary, a place which we can retreat to away from the wild, wintry weather. If your home isn’t as cosy and warm as you’d like, there are lots of ways to improve the situation.


A cosy home for winter


When it’s cold outside, it needn’t be inside! To make your home warmer, you could just turn up the heating but that will send your energy bills sky-high. It’s not good for the planet either. A more environmentally-friendly way to stay cosy this winter is to dig out your thermals and snuggle up with luxurious throws, blankets and cushions on the sofa. Opt for wonderfully soft fabrics in a variety of different textures such as velvet, faux fur and wool then choose a sumptuous sheepskin rug as a finishing touch. Add in a cold, wet Sunday and you’re all set to get cosy and watch a movie.


Save energy and cut your heating bills


 Thermal blinds in conservatory


Believe it or not, you can be kind to the planet, insulate all your rooms effectively and save money on your heating bills. The answer is Thomas Sanderson’s Duette® thermal blinds. These innovative pleated blinds work in a similar way to the layers you wear during the winter; they are made up of a double layer of honeycomb fabric and the hexagonal structure traps warm air passing through it. The Duette® blinds are superb insulators for your windows because they help to retain heat wherever it’s needed and maintain a comfortable temperature. You won’t need to turn up your heating thermostat as high so you’ll save money for many years to come.


Best of all, our Duette® thermal blinds can be used throughout your home so that every room will be toasty and warm this winter. These incredible blinds are practical but stylish too with 20 beautiful colours to choose from. For bedrooms and nurseries, dim-out fabrics are available to effectively control light and shade. Duette® thermal blinds really come into their own in conservatories and orangeries which traditionally lose large amounts of heat through their glass windows and roof.


Every Thomas Sanderson blind is hand-made to the precise dimensions of your windows and professional installed so you can always be sure of a perfect fit.
