Ensure Your Windows are Ready for Winter

In Window Treatments

Winter officially starts December 21, and cold weather is sure to arrive soon after! That means it’s time to make sure our homes are ready! In addition to the usual household tasks like cleaning the gutters and testing out your heating system, don’t forget to make sure your windows are ready to provide maximum warmth and coziness as we ring in the Holiday Season. Otherwise, you could be headed toward a winter with steep energy bills and indoor chills.

Seal All Doors and Windows

The right window treatments can make a huge difference when it comes to keeping cold air where it belongs, but they can only do so much if gusts are actively let inside due to drafty windows. If you suspect your home may have a few drafty spots, be sure to make it a priority to weather strip and caulk those doors and windows.

Choose the Right Window Treatments

After ensuring your windows and doors are properly treated for the winter ahead, you can shift your focus to auditing your current window treatment solutions. If your windows are not properly covered, you could be poised for major heat loss during the coldest days of the year. So, take the time to ask yourself whether your window treatments meet your aesthetic and efficiency needs. If your current setup doesn’t meet your standards in either of those categories, we have a few recommendations to consider with winter weather in mind!

· Draperies. One of the best ways to lock heat inside of your home while maintaining a sense of elegance is with thermal, lined drapes designed for the winter. For maximum thermal protection, you can hang draperies close to the windows and allow them to brush close to the floor.

· Cellular Honeycomb Shades. If energy efficiency is your top priority this winter, then cellular shades are our top recommendation. They are a phenomenal choice for insulating the home, while still letting in some much-needed light during the darker months of year. Cellular Honeycomb Shades can be custom cut to match your windows and found in a number of colors and styles to suit your taste.
