Thermal curtains are perfect for homes with air conditioning or central heating…
There are so many benefits to investing in thermal curtains for your home.
If your home has air conditioning or central heating, these are the perfect curtains for you. The thermal properties will help to prevent cold air or warm air from escaping the room.
Stay warm and cosy in Winter as these thermal curtains will retain the heat from your central heating. If you want to stay cool during Summer, use them to keep to block heat from coming in the house through the windows.
Use black out curtains to block out light to improve your sleep quality…
Not only do they have thermal properties, they have also been designed to block out light. Darkness is essential to sleep, and light can be a huge contributing factor to a lack of or poor quality of sleep.
Our brains automatically associate light with day time and darkness with night time, so when light shines through your curtains in the early hours of the morning this may stimulate your brain and prevent you from sleeping.
These black out curtains ensure your room is in complete darkness and ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.
Can curtains reduce noise in my home?
Outside noise commonly enters through windows and doors. Not only is this unwanted during the day, but it can become a huge problem when trying to fall asleep at night.
Without investing in expensive soundproofing equipment, black out curtains are one of the most effective ways to reduce the amount of noise that enters your home.
They are a fantastic inexpensive way to create a dark, quiet and peaceful room which is perfect for a great night’s sleep.
What rooms are best for blackout curtains?

They are most popular in these types of rooms due to their noise reducing, light blocking and thermal properties.
These three characteristics help to make the room a tranquil environment that is ideal for relaxation.
How should I hang my curtains?
Hanging curtains is mainly down to personal preference and interior design taste. There are many ways to hang curtains, however here is an image from Style by Emily Henderson that showcases the three most common methods:
- The float – This is perfect for curtains that have a pattern or interesting design as it allows the material to hang completely straight. They should hang just less than an inch off the floor to achieve this effect.
- The kiss – This is where the material barely skims the floor. Very accurate measuring is needed for this method.
- The puddle – Where there is extra length and the material creates a puddle on the floor.
