How do I keep my house cool without losing my view?
 
Hello,

I recently began a remodeling project on my home. I am having diffuculty deciding what the best solution is for window coverings. My house gets extremely warm in the summer, but I hate having to close my blinds. How do I keep my home cool and protected without losing my view?

RE: How do I keep my house cool without losing my view?
 
I recently moved into a new house that came with large horrendous blinds. I love being able to see outside of my windows, so I always keep my blinds wide open. I didnít want to worry about sun damage, so I installed window film on all the windows in my house. I used PANORAMA Window Film by BEKAERT. Everything is professionally installed, my house stays cool and protected, and my windows look wonderful!



I hope this helps you out!
