Privacy is important to us all. Whether you live on a busy city street or a leafy suburban cul-de-sac, nobody wants prying eyes looking into their home. It can often feel however that in order to gain privacy you need to completely close off your home from the outside world, pulling down the blinds, drawing the curtains & consequently losing all of the natural daylight entering the room as well as your view of the outside.

We put a lot of time and energy into the maintenance of our properties, we keep paths and patios swept, fascia and cladding smart, we mow front lawns and grass banks and keep our gardens tidy. From the outside, windows and doors tend to be the main focal points; we keep them clean and painted but whatever we place in the window are what gives the first impression of our homes to the outside world. During the day, curtains tend to be mainly hidden from view; blinds on the other hand, are much more prominent.

When winter comes, or simply colder temperatures, one thing many people forget is how the construction and decoration in your home can affect how much of the heat escapes your home. No house is insulated completely, and there's always going to be a certain amount of heat escaping. Doors and windows are prime locations where hot air can escape allowing the cold in, and in the case of windows, there's things you can do to help out. Insulating your home by dressing your windows is a good way to keep the interior warmer, whilst lowering your heating bills in the process.
