Do you have

Winter curtains?
In the summer we go with no curtains in the kitchen bow window. In the colder weather we have a blanket curtains to help keep out the cold air at night and we open them in the day so that the south facing windows let in the sun and the warmth.
Does anyone else make these adjustments for window coverings.

  • I really really NEED to do this, but haven't yet. We don't have any curtains at all, but our heating bill is too high so last year I swore I'd get curtains up. I guess I better get moving on that, lol.

  • We don't have any curtains.  The bedrooms have large slatted blinds (as opposed to mini-blinds).  They are plastic--much nicer than the annoying aluminum ones we had when I was a kid, lol.

    The other windows in the house have vertical blinds on them.

    My parents had curtains when I was a kid until my mom got tired of the dust and changing and washing them, etc.  When I was 13 they switched over to all blinds (mini or vertical) or shades.

  • No. For one, I can't afford to, and also because it's kind of a pain to me to switch curtains and stuff all the time. I mainly have mini blinds and toppers - that's it.

  • Yep. In the summer it's sheers for the living room. come winter, up go the insulating panels. Bedrooms too, & I also have mini-blinds in all my windows. They do help seal out the cold air.
