How to Block Sunlight and Increase Home Privacy

So you want more privacy in your home but hate drawing the blinds. This is a common question we come across here at Solar Art. Window film seems like a good option, but tinting might block too much light and ruin your views… or would it? Curtains? Blinds? Window film? How do you know what window treatment is right for you?

Hanging curtains and blinds on your windows

First, we’ll talk about traditional window treatments like curtains and blinds. These are physical barriers on your windows that offer nearly-100% privacy and are often built into the decor so you don’t need to worry about installation. On the other hand, they block your views when you close them and block sunlight from coming into the room. Curtains also are vulnerable to sun damage and need to be replaced periodically.

Blinds also offer great privacy but still, they block your views and don't really allow sunlight in. You also need to open and close them (the same goes for curtains) to benefit from them. Both of blinds and curtains leave you totally vulnerable when they are open.

Installing window film on your home windows

The easiest and most modern solution, is reflective window film. Reflective window film increases privacy and blocks prying eyes by reflecting light from outside back out, but the film is translucent to let light inside. Moving the blinds and curtains is a thing of the past. Unfortunately, only blackout window film can protect your privacy at night while your lights are on. Otherwise, reflective tinted window film is the ideal option.

In addition to unparalleled privacy, you’ll get other benefits from it too. Our films keep out the heat and light during the day and protect your home sun damage. Your rooms will be cooler and your AC bills lower.
