Roman Blinds are ideal for insulating your home. Select the ‘Thermal Lining’ option on the product page when you come to order and this will see your blinds arrive with a thick fabric backing attached. This also means the blind is a blackout blind as the fabric is thicker.
What are the benefits of Thermal Roman Blinds
Thermal blinds are a great way to insulate your windows and to stop the cold from entering your room. They create a barrier between the glass and the room, keeping the warmth on the inside and the cold out. This means not only do you enjoy a warmer room in the winter and a cooler one in the summer, you save energy and even reduce your heating bill!
Not only do they insulate your windows, they look stylish at the same time, and we offer a large variety of blinds to choose from.
How do Thermal Roman Blinds work?
A thermal blind requires no additional work from you to function, it is simply the nature of the blind. In essence, having anything in your window will improve the insulation of your room simply because it creates a barrier, however our thermal blinds are often made from a slightly thicker fabric that ensures the amount of air moving from the room to the glass and vice-versa is kept to a minimum. By breaking up this convection current, the warmth stays in the room and the cold stays close to the glass.
Do Thermal Roman Blinds work in the Summer?
All blinds are ideal for the summer as they create shade. In the hottest months a thermal blind will work in reverse to what it does in the winter – it will keep the room cool and stop the heat entering the room. Again, this is because it creates a barrier that blocks sunlight. An added benefit of this is that the sun’s damaging UV rays are also blocked from entering, which means your furniture will be protected from fading or damage.
Measuring and Installing Thermal Roman Blinds
Measuring and installing thermal Roman Blinds is really easy, it is no more complicated or scary than buying a flat pack chest of draws (in fact it’s easier because we provide text with our instructions!). Measure your blinds right and you'll be set! Take three width measurements at different heights across the window and if there is any difference, enter the average width into your desired roman blind’s product page.
Do the same for the drop, again checking three times and entering it into the website. If your roman blind is going outside of a recess, please let us know by clicking the ‘exact’ option on the product page. Add some extra millimetres to the top and bottom on each side to make the blind bigger than the window to limit the amount of light that gets around the edges.
If it is going within the recess, click ‘recess’ and we’ll make all the relevant deductions for brackets, buy you may want to deduct 5mm from the width to give the blind a snug fit.
