When returning home, you should be stepping into a place of comfort and relaxation – a place where you’re completely at ease. The outside world can’t get you here. Even while the rain pours, you’re protected in your home, warm and dry. Although the rain can’t touch you while you’re indoors, the sun can. And although the natural lighting can certainly be pleasant, it’s important for you to protect yourself from the dangerous effects of the sun.
Why not consider window tints? By applying some protective film to your windows, you won’t only be protected from the rain. Here are three reasons to tint the windows of your home:
It extends the lifespan of your furnishings
Did you know that the sun can damage your furniture, drapes, carpets, and more? Chances are you spent a lot on that luxurious rug and that comfortable sofa. Don’t let the sun damage your investment and force you to repair or replace it faster than you should.
When sunlight comes through your glass windows or doors, it fades cloth-covered furniture and other fabrics you may have inside your home. In fact, a couple of months could leave you with a fabric colour that is completely different from what it was before! Not only does the sun affect the aesthetic quality of your belongings but it weakens it and reduces its lifespan. Professional window film will keep the damaging sunlight out so you can enjoy an extended lifespan for your furnishings.
It protects your flooring
Although you may think that your hardwood floors are safe from the sun, it isn’t. One of the most expensive parts of a home is the flooring. However, great hardwood floors also look incredible and add quite a bit of functional and aesthetic appeal to your space.
To keep your hardwood floors from fading, have film applied to your windows. This will ensure that your floors continue to look brand-new for years!
It keeps you safe from UV rays
The beautiful sunlight that shines through your windows and lights up your home also comes with some damaging effects. Aside from damaging your furnishings and your flooring, it also harms you. It isn’t enough to feel comfortable inside your air-conditioned home. You need to know that your skin and body is protected from those UV rays.
Don’t think that you’re safe from sunlight just because you’re indoors. When the sun enters your home, it can still burn and damage your skin if you aren’t protecting yourself. Sure, you could apply (and constantly re-apply) sunscreen every morning, but would that really be the best use of your time and money? You deserve to feel comfortable and safe within your home even without sunscreen.
