Cold Weather Solutions for Your Home

As temperatures plummet, thermostat wars are being waged in homes everywhere. The chronically-cold, bedecked in their battle armor of fuzzy slippers and throw blankets, will inch the temperature up by one degree. Ever vigilant, the penny-pinchers will tick the temperature back down to a tolerable sixty-five. And so it goes, on and on, an endless wintertime battle. Sound familiar? The right wintertime products can put a stop to this madness! Look for cold weather solutions like thermal curtains, heated mattress pads, and cozy blankets that exude warmth without wasting money.

The Weathermate Insulated Thermalogic Curtains are a great first step toward easing thermostat war tensions. With a unique, insulated fabric construction, these thermal curtains keep the cold out of your home and your hand out of your wallet. The solid colors make for a low-key, elegant look that will not interfere with your current layout. From terra cotta to khaki, there’s a color for every room!
