Use Stained Glass Windows to Decorate Your Home

My name is Linda, and I am a professional interior decorator with additional experience in construction. I am passionate about the beauty of stained glass and its ability to completely transform a room or an entire home. Consider turning one or more of your windows into a work of art by replacing it with a stained glass design. If you don't want to completely replace a window, you can order a customized stained glass window and have it hung in front of your existing window. This creates a lovely focal piece in your home. Decorating with stained glass is easy and can make a huge difference in your home's appearance.

Own Your Own Business? Four Reasons Why You Should Tint the Windows

If you own a business, you should consider commercial window tinting for all your windows. There are many benefits of doing this, four of which are listed below. You can then hire a company to put the tint on all the windows for you.

Save Money

Tinting your windows can help you save money on your energy bills. If you have a large building this can be a drastic amount. This is because during the summer less sun will not shine through the windows. This means the inside of your building will not heat up, which will cause your HVAC unit to run less. Also, if the heat does get into the building your HVAC unit will run longer which can cause problems with the unit or reduce its life. 

Protect the Interior

The sun shining through windows can cause damage to the interior of your business. For example, it can cause carpets and/or furniture to fade. If you have leather furniture that sits near the window sun shining on the furniture for long periods of time may damage the leather. Your flooring can also be affected by the sunshine. If you have equipment that you keep near the windows heat may affect the equipment and damage them. 

Keep Employees Safe and Comfortable

If you do not have tinted windows different areas of your interior will feel colder than others. For example, rooms with a lot of windows can heat up during the summer months. Rooms with no or fewer windows will stay much cooler. This can make your employees uncomfortable and may affect their productivity. Sun may cause glare on computer screens and tablets making it harder to work. 

Help With Privacy and Security

People cannot see into tinted windows very well so intruders cannot see what is inside your building. This may prevent them from breaking in if they do not know if you have expensive things. Also, this can help with privacy as you may have someone that sits close to a window that works on private information. This way no one can see what they are working on through the window.

Hire a company to install a business window tint on your windows for you. They can show you the different types available as there will be different tints you can choose from. They can also help you pick one that will match your office building and situation the best.
