Summer has arrived in the UK and this year, we are really feeling the heat! As much as we love to take advantage of the sunshine by hosting BBQs and dining al fresco, sometimes staying indoors is the best option. With temperature’s reaching up to mid-30s this summer, we have some tips and tricks to help keep you cool and protected from the heat just by using our blinds or curtains.
Keep your Curtains or Blinds closed
Something which is simple, yet effective is layering up your blinds with curtains and ensuring that you keep them closed when hot – this works the most efficiently if you make sure they’re closed in the morning before the temperature rises throughout the day.
Upgrade to Thermal Blackout lining
Available on a wide selection of our Roman Blinds, Roller Blinds and Curtains, a popular option for the summer weather is our Thermal Blackout lining, which is designed to help keep your room cool in summer and warm in winter, and is especially helpful to block out the light of these bright sunny mornings too.
Choose your window dressing for all seasons
Light coloured curtains are a must for the summertime, reflecting the sun away rather than absorbing it as dark fabrics do. Effortlessly transcend the seasons and opt for a timeless white for a colour that will never go out of style.
Our Privacy Sheers are a perfect choice for patio and BiFold doors. Thanks to cleverly designed vertical louvres that combine delicate voile and opaque fabric, with a simple twist you can enjoy both light and privacy, allowing you to tailor shading effortlessly to your home.
Energy costs are at an all time high, so as much as we want to turn on every fan and blast the air conditioning we understand it is not always an option. Our energy efficient DuoShade Thermal Blinds are a great way to insulate your home as the aluminium lined honeycomb pockets help to keep your home cool.
We hope these tips and tricks help you to endure the warmer months, check out Blinds 2go for a range of practical yet stylish options for your home.
