Clever ways to control temperature

Practical layering

Springtime brings warmer weather and lighter nights. But just when you think it’s safe to turn off the heating, you’re invariably hit with an arctic blast, so it pays to invest in clever solutions that help you maintain a comfortable temperature all year round. Here’s a really simple idea that gives you so much flexibility. Layer a Roman blind over a sheer Roller blind for flexible control over light and an extra layer of cosiness at the window. All our Roman blinds are available with blackout linings, which can help keep very sunny rooms feeling cool. Or if your room tends to feel chilly, choose a thermal lining for an extra snug feel.

Energy-efficient blinds

Conservatories and glass extensions often experience extremes of temperature, feeling uncomfortably hot in summer and bone-chillingly cold in winter. ThermaShade Pleated blinds are an innovative solution that actively traps heat in clever honeycomb cells. This prevents valuable heat from escaping during the cooler months.  And our SolarPleat blinds have a reflective layer that repels heat in summer. The result is a comfortable ambience all year round.

Silk white shutters in Erica Davies' bedroom window

All-season shutters

Wooden shutters are naturally insulating with flexibility to control light, reduce noise levels and maintain a comfortable ambient temperature. Shutters fit snugly into your window recess, helping to reduce draughts that can slip through the gaps in your window frames. Tilt the louvres to filter direct sunlight, and on really hot days, you can close the louvres fully to keep your room feeling cool. Teaming shutters with curtains adds a layer of softness and extra warmth during the cooler evenings.

Outdoor shade

Spring sunshine means more time spent outdoors, so now is the time to think about controlling the temperature in your garden too. A garden awning is a wonderful extension to your living space, allowing you to enjoy a stylish al-fresco lifestyle that’s protected from extremes of temperature. Our garden awnings provide valuable shade when you need it, and with motorised controls, your awning can easily be retracted whenever you want to enjoy spending time in the sun.
