When you think of window treatments, what is it that comes to mind? If you are like the majority of homeowners, you will come up with ideas about shades and blinds or maybe even curtains and drapes. However, there are also ways to treat windows that involve applying implements to the glass itself. Window tinting is one of those ways, and residential window tinting is actually a fairly common practice. You could either have all of the windows in your home tinted or just certain ones. Here is a look at some of the places to consider window tinting in your home.
Consider tinting the windows in your home office.
Having a window in your home office is most definitely nice, but if you have your desk situated near a window, it can mean you are exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. Even sunlight through windows can induce harmful UV rays, which means you could easily get sun damage if you spend a lot of time near a window in your home office. Having these windows tinted is an easy, cost-effective solution to keep your skin safe. Plus, you won't have to worry about direct sunlight damaging your expensive office equipment.
Consider adding window tint to windows in the family room.
How many times have you gathered with family members to watch a movie on your family room television and had to draw up all the curtains, close the blinds, and maybe even hang up a blanket just so the sunlight does not interfere? It is not at all uncommon for family rooms or living rooms to have large picture windows that allow in a lot of natural light. Unfortunately, this natural light can be a bother when watching television or gaming is taking place in the space.
Consider tinting windows in your bedroom.
When the days grow longer and the sunlight streams through bedroom windows later in the evening, it can make it really hard if you have to go to bed early or if you try to get your kids in bed early. Having the windows in the bedrooms tinted can help keep the sunlight at bay during these times or when you just want to sleep in a little longer. The advantage to having the windows tinted is it won't really matter what type of window treatments you use; you will always have less sunlight in the room.Share

Hello, my name is Donald Clemins. I am here to talk to you about windows for commercial buildings. When I purchased my first storefront, I was shocked to feel cold drafts coming in through the picture windows. The drafts made it feel like the front door was propped wide open. I knew my customers would feel uncomfortable sitting there due to the drastic temperature fluctuations. I contacted a window installer to talk about my options. I was amazed to hear about all of the different types of windows available for my storefront. I would like to share that information on this site to help other people find the best windows for their commercial buildings. I will focus on window material and build upgrades as manufacturers make new developments. Thank you.
