When deciding which sunscreen is right for your home, you can quickly get confused about which density and colors are correct. It boils down to what your priorities are. Whether you value aesthetics over privacy or how much natural light you want to enter your house are all factors that contribute to this decision.
Let's go briefly go over the types of window sunscreens available. Sunscreens for windows are divided into types by density or color.
One of the most reliable materials for solar screen window shades is vinyl-coated polyester. The thickness of the fabric decides how much heat and UV Rays. The solar screen prevents heat from entering your home. Window solar screens come in two types based on density or thickness.
80% Heat Blockage Solar Screens80% solar screens block 80% of the heat entering your home, thus allowing more natural light to enter your home. This option is excellent for people who don't have privacy as a considerable concern and would like more light to brighten up their homes. These solar screens are also perfect for windows that do not directly face the sun so that you can enjoy the shade and the view.
90% Heat Blockage solar screens
90% Heat Blockage solar screens block more heat from entering your house because the fabric's weave is tighter, making it denser. They allow less light to enter your home. This type of solar screen is optimal for people worried about privacy and have plenty of lighting inside their house. You may also want to opt for these because you wish to reduce the heat entering your home as much as possible, or you have a lot of windows facing the sun directly.
Once you know which density is suitable for your home, whether 80% or 90%, you can focus on the window sunscreen color you want. You can choose between these classic colors:
All these colors look good on their own but when you have to decide which one is the best for your house you have to think hard. Since you will be looking at it for the next ten years of your life or longer, it should look great to you. When choosing the color, you can keep the following in mind.
The Undertone of Your Exterior ColorPaint colors have either cool or warm undertones. It's wise to match the base undertones when adding accessories. Warm undertones are more yellowy, and cool undertones are towards the blue end of the color wheel. For example, grey is cool while beige is warm, or black is cool while dark bronze is warm.
Blend in or ContrastYou can match the color to your house or pick one starkly different for a contrasting look. If you painted your house a light color, you could choose a light-colored window sunscreen to have a blended-in look. You could also choose a dark color to stand against it and highlight how light it is. We can say the same about dark-colored houses. You can pick a light color to contrast it or a dark color to match it.
