How the Days of Dreaded TV Glare Are Finally Over

Light-Filtering-ShadesCast your mind back several years ago and there was one problem blighting half of the country; and it usually came on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Many a relaxing weekend was ruined by the sun’s glare, which was thrown onto the TV, making it unwatchable. Obstacles were put in the way to try and block it; but it was a nuisance, plain and simple.
Some of those affected households have now been able to resolve their television ailments though. Through the use of strategic window treatments, it’s now possible to make the dreaded TV glare a complete thing of the past. If you are looking to join this modern group of viewers, stay tuned and take a look at some window treatment options that can save the day.
Blackout Shades
We’ll start the suggestions list with one of the more traditional options. Blackout blinds have donned the market for many years and while they’re often marketed as the ideal solution for a nursery, they’re not a bad option when it comes to TV time. The fact that they can completely block the natural light from a room means that they immediately eradicate the issue of glare – although you should question just whether or not you want that pitch-black effect or if you would like some light to seep through into the room before you buy.
Light Filtering Cellular Shades
The previous sentence links perfectly to this next solution. For some people, blackout shades just aren’t an option as they suck all of the light from an area. This isn’t always desirable for lounge areas and living rooms.
Light filtering cellular shades offer a much tamer approach. This is a solution which allows “soft” natural light into the room. In other words, it’s not going to be blinding you or your television screen, but it is going to light up the room so it doesn’t have the cave-like appearance that the blackout option can sometimes present.Window-Behind-TV
Solar Shades
We’ll conclude our list of suggestions with one of the more recent products in the blinds industry. Solar shades are probably one of the most inventive products in the market and are able to make up for all of the deficiencies that might occur with the previous two suggestions.
While the light filtering cellular shades use slats and limit some visibility, solar shades are a solid material. The big difference is that this material allows you to “see through” it, while still managing to partially darken a room. It really is a best of both worlds solution, and you can choose different types of weaves on the fabric to prompt different visibility levels. If we return to the original point of eliminating the dreaded glare that finds its way towards television screens, it should hopefully go without saying that solar shades are able to shut down this “hard” light while still allowing you an unobstructed view out of the window.
