I like to keep our curtains closed when the sun is shining into our family room in order to protect our furniture and pictures along our walls. The window faces west, so the sun streams in until it nearly sets. However, my husband says he feels like a mole, and thinks opening the curtains and letting the sun in after 3pm would be fine. Is that a good compromise?
Dear Sun sensitive,
Ultraviolet rays can be damaging to your furniture, floors, and framed pictures, even after 3pm. A simple solution is to install a solar shade with a sheer weave that blocks out most of the sun's harmful rays, but lets you see out. These solar shades come in a variety of colors that can compliment and enhance your current window covering.
