What are the best blinds for winter?

4th January 2023

With the temperatures falling and heating bills rising, you may be wondering “What are the best blinds for winter?” The good news is there are many fantastic blind styles to keep your home warm and cosy during the colder months. Read on to find out which blinds are best at this time of year. 

The top 5 blinds for the winter months

Blinds are by far the best type of window covering for keeping your home warm during the winter months. The reason for this is that, when properly measured and installed, they insulate your home by trapping air between the fabric and the glass. This seals the windows, stopping air from escaping through them. Not only do blinds stop warm air from getting out but they can stop any cold draughts from getting in.

Roller blinds Roller Blinds in Rotherham

When we’re asked “What are the best blinds for winter?”, our first answer is always roller blinds. These blinds are constructed from a single sheet of material. Which means there are no gaps present for warm air to get through. This can reduce heat loss through the window considerably, keeping the room much warmer. 

Even though roller blinds are often considered to be one of the simpler styles on the market, they can actually stop as much as 21% of the heat escaping from a room. They are one of our most popular blind styles here at UKBlinds Direct, with many people choosing them not just for their insulative qualities but for their attractive appearance and affordability. We offer roller blinds in many different colours and patterns to suit various needs and tastes.

Roman blinds

Roman blinds are another good choice if you’re looking to keep your home warm during the winter months. Like roller blinds, they’re also made from one piece of fabric, making them great at preventing warm air from getting through your windows. Roman blinds are often made from a slightly thicker material, which means they’re arguably even more effective. Many people choose to add a pair of thick curtains to the blinds to boost their insulative qualities further. Roman blinds are available in an almost unlimited range of colours and patterns, allowing you to easily achieve your chosen look for your room.

Perfect Fit blinds

Perfect Fit blinds are one of the newer styles on the market, first becoming available in 2005. Since then they have become extremely popular, not just for their stylish good looks but for helping to keep homes warm and cosy. Perfect Fit blinds help to keep rooms warm because they, as their name suggests, fit perfectly into the frame of the window. They sit nearly on the windowsill, providing fantastic insulation even during the coldest months of the year. 

Perfect Fit blinds do a great job of stopping heat from escaping and from stopping cold air entering your living space. One of the key benefits of these blinds is that they fit most types of windows, even those that are awkwardly shaped or unusually sized. 

Wooden blinds 

You might assume that fabric blinds would do a better job of keeping your home warm in winter. However, wooden blinds are well worth considering. Wood is one of the best insulators due to having several air pockets within its cellular structure that retain warm air. They can keep the heat in and the cold draughts out, keeping your room warm and comfortable during the winter months. Wooden blinds are incredibly stylish, offering a traditional and classy finish that few other styles can match. They’re also very durable and hardwearing, not to mention easy to clean. Whilst they’re not the cheapest style of blind on the market, they’re a fantastic investment long-term.
