Energy Saving Roman Blinds, Pelmets & Lambrequins
High Quality, hand made Roman blinds are available with a range of linings, including thermal blackout lining and interlining at no extra cost. Our blackout lining provides excellent thermal insulation as well as blocking light and significantly reducing external noise. While Roman blinds lined with blackout material are highly effective, pelmets and lambrequins can be added for total blocking of small chinks of light. Fully lined Roman blinds are ideal fitted in bedrooms where there are babies, young children or night workers.
Your Roman blinds may be fitted above the window recess or within the recess, if it will not block too much light. In wintertime cold air remains trapped between the insulating layers of material and the window, you will feel the difference with warmer surroundings and a 40% improvement in heat retention. Heaters and radiators can be turned down, saving money on gas and electricity bills. Alternatively in the summer your versatile Roman blinds, will ensure a cooler environment by preventing the suns heat from penetrating your rooms through their windows. This means less use of air conditioning units or fans and a pleasant living space. Another benefit includes protection of your furniture from fading.
