Online curtain track and pole supplier Tracks-Direct have seen a dramatic increase in orders in recent weeks as customers prepare their homes for winter and the festive season. One reason for the surge of curtain pole orders at this time of year is the cold, dark evenings. Drawing the curtains as soon as it gets dark is a good way to insulate against draughts and keep the heat in, saving energy and money. As the clocks went back recently the evenings seem darker than ever, and this has encouraged people to go online and order some new curtain poles.
The most insulating curtains are lined and made from thick fabric. This is perfect for keeping the house warm, but these curtains are heavy. To get the best use from them, a heavy duty curtain track or pole is a must. Cheap versions from DIY stores simply can't cope with the weight and might break or be pulled out of the wall. Tracks Direct only sell quality products and have a number of items from Silent Gliss, a well known brand widely recognised as the best in the industry.
Another reason for the trend is the approach of Christmas - a time of year when people spend time with family and friends. Most people want their homes to look their best at this time of year, and seemingly minor changes like replacing a curtain pole can make a big difference to the overall look of a room. There has been a particular increase in the number of bay window curtain poles being sold.
Bay windows can be difficult to dress using off-the-shelf products as it's hard to get them to fit properly, but Tracks Direct sell tracks and poles that are customised to the exact size and shape of the window. Electric curtain tracks are another popular winter product. Not only are they an impressive gadget to show off to friends and family, they can be set up to open or close the curtains automatically with a timer or light sensor. That way, the curtains close as soon as it gets dark so you don't have to remember to do it yourself.
The experts at Tracks-Direct have been selling curtain poles, tracks and accessories for over 40 years. They bend and customise their products in house so you can be sure your bay window curtain pole will fit perfectly. They also have a range of corded, cordless and electric tracks for a stylish yet practical look. Visit the website for more information.
