Be warm this winter

BOP Curtains and Blinds' Tony Baker shows off a blind sample.

It just needs the mercury to dip to a wintry four degrees like it has recently to have us cranking up the heat pump, heaving another log on the fire and rugging up.

But ask the guys at BOP Curtains and Blinds why you should invest in all of that heat if you are going to let it fly out the window, and they’ll tell you that heat should be retained and maximised by installing insulating curtains or blinds.

Here are the facts: 42-to-45 per cent of heat in houses insulated to pre-2007 building requirements is lost through the windows, and even houses insulated to the 2007 code, including double glazing, see 21-to-31 percent of heat lost via the same openings.

Tony Baker, of BOP Curtains and Blinds, has a diploma in interior design and 30 years’ worth of industry experience and wisdom. 

“The good news is that insulating curtains and blinds can significantly reduce heat loss,” says Tony.

“Research shows that well-fitted curtains and blinds, when closed, can reduce heat loss through single glazed windows by 60 per cent and double-glazed windows by up to 50 per cent.”

This is where BOP Curtains and Blinds’ expertise kicks in, to help warm your home this winter with special insulating fabrics and blinds.

“Our friendly team will come to you with thousands of samples to ensure you get the right look for your home,” says Tony. “We provide a free measure, quote and interior design service so you can stick within your budget and get the perfect installation service you need.”

To achieve good insulation, curtains should have quality lining, fit well against the wall or window frame, be wider than the window frame and go from floor-to-ceiling or have pelmets above them. The quality workmanship of BOP Curtains and Blinds will ensure all of those boxes are ticked.

BOP Curtains and Blinds’ range of products includes curtain fabrics, roller, venetian and roman blinds, curtain tracks and rods, lampshades and cushions.
