Sunday 26th October marks the clocks going back, so it’s definitely time to start looking towards winter. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be working out how you can keep warm without spending a fortune on your energy bills. And a great place to start is with a couple of simple home textiles.
Not only do thick curtains add a cosy feeling to any room, but they also block out nasty cold chills and have the ability to insulate your surroundings. We’ve got designs such as the Woven Blackout Curtains; they feature a blackout lining, which adds more layers between you and the weather outside. Plus, they’re great for weekend lay-ins. Instead, there’s our Lunar Thermal Pleated Curtains. Gorgeous curtains that could also help save you money – what’s not to love? They feature built-in thermal properties, helping to retain warmth locked in and draughts locked out.
Other options include the Faux Silk Blackout Thermal Eyelet Curtains with Tie-backs, which are practical yet provide a luxurious touch. On top of that, we’ve got our Thermal Blackout Liners (2 Pack). These help conserve heat in and block draughts in winter, and they also reflect heat in summer.
No one likes to be shivering when they’re trying to go to sleep, so also consider changing your bedding in winter. Up the tog on your duvet for starters – we highly recommend the Silentnight Hippo and Duck 4.5, 10.5 and 13.5 Tog Duvet for complete comfort. You could also encourage a toasty warm feeling with a new duvet cover and pillowcases, such as the truly lovely Patchwork Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set. Then add a throw to really lock in that heat – how about our Husky Faux Fur Throw – Grey? It’s great for using on the sofa combined with your favourite film too.
