Tinted windows are more often than not associated primarily with cars, and most vehicles today will come with some amount of tinting, whether that be on the side windows, the main windshield or all over. However, in the home, you have to really specify which rooms you want glass tinting done in as it is not a common service, which is a shame because there are many benefits. If you are considering renovating your home, then here are three rooms in which you should consider glass tinting to make them reach their full potential.
Children and especially babies are very susceptible to sunlight and heat. Not only can it potentially sunburn them if they sleep in direct sunlight for too long, but it is also more likely to wake them up. For many parents just trying to get a bit of a break, having their child be awoken by the earliest crack of light can be extremely annoying. Glass tinting gives you a bit of reprieve in both the presence of light waking up your child as well as the sunlight burning your child if there is prolonged exposure while you get distracted.
Kitchens are often the busiest room in the house and where a lot of work gets done. Preparing meals, stocking cupboards, doing dishes, and so on are all common tasks. Often, kitchens are surrounded by windows to provide as much natural lighting as possible, ostensibly in the pursuit of a natural and free-flowing environment. While it certainly can achieve that, it can also create a bit of glare on the surrounding metal appliances and shiny marble surfaces that are found in most kitchens. No one wants to be squinting while they are using sharp knives or hot pans, and a bit of glass tinting can lessen this problem significantly.
The living room is where so much of your time at home is spent relaxing, both alone and with friends and family. Whether you are watching a movie, playing a game or simply lounging around at a dinner party, no one wants to be disturbed by the heat or overabundance of light. Glass tinting keeps that natural light flowing in, but dulls it so that it is less intense. It also helps with heating and cooling costs in winter and summer, by acting as insulation, which helps in smaller living rooms that can be affected quite quickly by sunlight.
