Have you ever noticed that your kitchen tends to be considerably colder than other rooms in your home? You may not notice it when you’re cooking, because your stove or oven gives off plenty of heat, but anytime the kitchen isn’t in use, it’s likely to be the coldest room in your home. Why is that? And what can you do about it? Half Price Drapes is here to answer those questions for you.
Most kitchen windows don’t have curtains or blinds
The vast majority of kitchen windows in the United States don’t have curtains or blinds on them. This is especially true of kitchen windows over sinks or counters. Why? Well, in some cases, homeowners worry about kitchen curtains getting stained. In other cases, they simply want their kitchen to be bright and sunny. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to get what they want from their kitchen without losing so much heat.
Roman shades may be the answer for your needs
We’ve noticed that Roman shades seem to be particularly popular for those who are trying to cover up their kitchen windows. This makes sense, because if they’re installed correctly, a Roman shade is just as effective at insulating the home as double glazing your windows is – and it’s a whole lot cheaper! Getting Roman shades installed generally just requires screwing L-brackets or attaching the shades to the frame directly.
Roman shades aren’t the only option
Not only are there other options besides Roman shades, but there are actually other shades that make a great choice: Cellular shades. Otherwise known as honeycomb shades, these shades actually trap heat in their cells. This means that heat stays in your kitchen instead of getting out – and it means your kitchen stays warmer and your utilities aren’t wasted on heat that’s just sailing out the window.
We can offer custom options for your needs
We also sell custom shades and curtains to ensure that every customer of Half Price Drapes gets exactly what they need for their home. You’ll be amazed at how affordable our prices can be. Don’t let your kitchen raise your heat bill while still freezing you out. Insulate your kitchen windows and be impressed with the major different it can make.
