I recently gutted my dining room and completely changed it, one thing I did was make the whole back wall windows, i wanted the extra natural light and I knew it would look beautiful, for a while I appreciated the brightly lit dining room; Then when the sunrise and sunset times changed, I realized I didn’t take that into consideration.
- Now when I cook I have sun blazing directly into my esure.
It is impossible to clean dishes or use that whole back wall. It is also extremely warm in the dining room to where I don’t want to use the stove or the burners on top of it. I have thought about adding in a ductless mini chop however my partner came up with a brilliant solution, then he told me that problems were the windows, not the condo insulation. We needed to darken the windows. I started looking up adding colors to my windows. I didn’t guess if there was such a thing. Turns out there is! You can get window tinting for a reasonable cost. You can even get a sun control window film that blocks the light from coming in. It will still be a brightly lit room, just not totally warm and stuffy love before. I can make the outside windows look dark too for privacy if I want. I don’t think I want to do this though. I love the system of having my normal windows, however controlling the sun. I think technically that means I am doing a sun control window film. It shouldn’t be too much money.
