Still, struggling with a home that is too cold for comfort due to the cold weather especially at night without having to spend so much on heating appliances? A window drape is a way to go – your best bet.

  
Drapes are fabric panels made from heavyweight fabrics and cut to floor length. Due to the thickness of its fabric, which is not the same as curtains or blinds, a window drape provides insulation that locks in heat by creating a barrier between the cold and hot air. This shuts out cold and retains warmth in your interior.
  
Just in case you can’t exactly tell the difference between a drape and a curtain, a drape is that heavyweight interior window cover fabric that would not fly irrespective of the blowing breeze, as its thickness is firm enough to withstand motion air. The curtain, mostly best for summer, is lightweight and flies around at the slightest motion without any form of insulation.
  
This is why the drape is the most appropriate for this cold weather as its insulation capacity keeps your interior warm for as long as you need your space warm.
  
Yes, there is nothing wrong with having two sets of window coverage for your home, the curtain for summer and the drape for cold weather.
