Take Control of Your Home

A comfortable home suits your style and is the right temperature. Traditionally, curtains have been a way of providing a canvas that reflects your visual style, elegant, minimalist, sophisticated, or rustic. One thing you may not have thought of is how insulated curtains can help keep your home comfy in the cold weather.

Curtains are traditionally the thing that keeps the glare off your TV so it’s easy to see how they can cool your home – they keep the sun out. But how do they beat the cold weather?
