Because sunlight is coveted in most homes and is a key factor in the buying process &mdash it's important to utilize removable options. Rebecca chose an unlikely option that we found surprising and enlightening.
She purchased a see-through protective welding curtain &mdash a fantastic alternative to heavy, bulky curtains. The curtain is designed to be a protective shield when welding, but it serves the same purpose with the sun. It helps to block harmful UV rays, as well as keep a better part of the sunlight out to keep the house cool. What's great is that it's see-through so the couple didn't have to worry about compromising their view.
The see-through protective welding curtain was purchased for about $100, and was then cut to fit the window perfectly!
