Insulated Drapery Helps Cut Back Energy Costs

Insulated drapery can make your room more comfortable in both warm and cold weather. This form of drapery is perfect for use with older windows which may not be as well-sealed as newer models; however, insulated drapery is also a great addition in new homes which have the most up-to-date window insulation because it can provide an extra layer of protection.

Insulated drapes and Roman shades can save you money on your utility bills.  If you make your own drapes and shades you are not limited in the fabric you can use.  Choose from the many thousands of stylish drapery fabrics available and then line your drapes or shades with special insulated fabric.
