natural light and warmth. It normally works best with
south-facing windows, but don’t let that restrict you
when it comes to adding a little extra natural light and
warmth out of your home’s other replacement windows.

replacement windows. If you have drafty old windows it could
be time to replace them out with new energy efficient windows
to increase your comfort and help decrease
heating and cooling bills.
advantage of thick drapes. Using heavier fabrics for drapes helps to
add another barrier for your home, helping to keep
drafts out and warm air in. Couple these with blinds and shades
for an even bigger warming effect.
- Hang floor-length drapes. Using floor length drapes in door openings is somewhat forgotten, but can give you the ability to keep drafts from rooms or different floors at bay. If there are rooms in your home that don’t need to be heated constantly, there are a variety of stylish ways to include these drapes in to your home.
