Sustainable Design In Your Home
You don’t have to compromise on design or style when opting for an environmentally conscious home.
1. Keep The Warmth In With Curtains
Adding quality, heavy curtains to your home stops heat from escaping through your windows. This effectively reduces the amount of time you need to leave your heater on, creating a warm and cosy home. Our tip: Explore prints and patterns to add extra brightness to your room this Winter.
“Curtains offer a softening influence and amplify a sense of warmth and atmosphere within your home. As we all become more conscious of energy efficiency; curtains are a timeless solution that offer insulation value second to none..” – Sarah Lewein – Manager of Bendigo Curtains
