How to Use Curtains to Transform Your Dubai Home This Winter

The right window curtains and blinds can not only make your Dubai home look good but also help you control the temperature of the house. Hence, with winter here, it is a good idea to update the curtains or blinds in your home. This will help you keep the house naturally warm and save on the energy costs, while your home gets a fresh new look as well.

Choose Heavy Fabrics for Curtains

For natural insulation and energy preservation, choose curtains of heavy fabrics, like those that don’t let light in. Linen or wool come to mind as heavy materials but you can also use cotton. The key is to make sure you use a proper lining so the material hangs properly, as well as insulates. For winters, thermal lining is certainly one of the best options.

Dark grey curtains can provide the perfect minimalistic living room look. With long drapes to cover the entire window, you can adjust the amount of light you want to let in.

Select Patterned or Dark-Colored Curtains

This pale blue and gold pattern lends a luxurious look to the drawing room or eating area, making it the perfect place to host your next dinner.

Use Roller or Roman Blinds

Roller or roman blinds are the best types of blinds which retain heat as they are not slatted, and so, are ideal for winters. These are best suited to areas like the kitchen, home office, bathroom, etc. especially if the windows there get direct or too much sunlight.

Get a classy corporate feel for your home office with a roller blind that incorporates the color scheme and helps you maintain a cozy temperature ideal for efficiency.

Some Things to Remember

Don’t forget to let the sunshine in during the day. Leave the curtains and blinds open – and even windows for a short time – to keep your home fresh and warm. Close them when the sun goes out to keep the natural heat in.

Blinds should always fit the windows correctly. Any gaps and the natural heat would escape, lowering their effectiveness. Blinds should sit close to windows and even overlap them at the edges.

So a wonderful way to regulate the warmth inside your home is by giving your home a new look this winter by updating the curtains and blinds.
