The sun shining through your windows can be delightful! It’s warming and brightens up the room. But when sunlight glares, it’s bothersome and makes it nearly impossible to do what you want to do. Whether you are trying to read the newspaper, working on your computer or enjoying a movie on your tv or an electronic device, too much sun can block your view in an annoying way.
So how can you balance the natural light coming from windows, glass doors or sidelites at particular times of the day? According to a post at SF Gate, you can reduce glare by covering the window with a special film, by installing awnings and shutters, by hanging draperies and shades, by planting a tree to shade that window, and by painting your wall a brighter color.
