Solutions to Insulate Your House & Save Money This Winter

Even though it may be freezing outside in the Pacific Northwest, doesn’t mean you have to endure the cold indoors. Whether your home is older with a few extra drafts, or newer but quite not as insulated as you hoped, Budget Blinds in Bothell has recommendations to seal your heat in for a warm, cozy winter.

Choose Insulating Window Treatments

Budget Blinds has numerous options when it comes to window treatments that provide optimal insulation in your Lynnwood or Kirkland home. To name a few, you could try Cellular Shades, Roman Shades, Drapes, or even Shutters.

Cellular Shades, AKA Honeycomb Shades, are designed for the purpose of trapping air within their honeycomb shapes pockets. This simple strategy lets your home stay comfortable by “catching” the cold air before it enters the room. Ideal for just about any room in the house, these shades come in practically any shape and size.

Solutions to Insulate Your House This Winter CELLULAR SHADES

Roman Shades are a great option for those who like the elegance of drapery, but also like the ease of window shades. Like cellular shades, roman shades come in many colors, patterns, textures, including elegant fabrics like silk, while still strapping in heat.

Drapes naturally have a heavier and thicker fabric, automatically providing more insulation to a room. With our Inspired Drapes collection, you’ll be able to choose exactly what you want  to meet your heating needs while staying elegant and stylish. With our ready made drapery panel you will be receiving and instant upgrade to your home. Or, you can work with a consultant to design your very own unique look that you will love all winter long.

Shutters are designed to fit the closest to the window frame, which leaves less room for drafts. Highly customizable, shutters add a distinctive, clean, “no fuss” look, while still matching the furnishings in your home. Wood, faux wood, and aluminum are just a few options to choose from to help trap the cold from the outdoors so you can enjoy your holidays in comfort.  

Get Creative

A little creativity can go a long way on your energy bill. Maybe try one, or all, of these simple solutions to a cozy winter home.

Hang an extra drape in a open doorway or entryway to help insulate even more throughout the house by trapping heat inside each room or large area.

Create or buy a draught excluder to place in front of the gap between your doors and floors to help stop cold air from seeping inside. Maybe have a little DIY fun to make your favorite animal, or simply use a towel to block the drafts.

Use the oven often? Take advantage of the energy already used by leaving the oven door open once you are done and the oven is turned off. That heat will spread through the room and maybe even the whole house. Just be careful if you have little ones running around. 

Solutions to Insulate Your House This Winter RUG

Insulate your floor by using rugs during the winter. More heat is lost through the floor then you may realize. By laying down a rug, especially on uncarpeted areas, you’re giving your house a major insulation boost.

We all know Washington will be cold for several months still. Now is the time to find the nooks and crannies to seal so you can rest easy these coming months. As much as we love winter, it’s even better seeing it from indoors, in our pajamas, with some hot chocolate.
