Four Reasons Why Window Tint with Blinds and Shades will Benefit Your Lifestyle

Large bay windows with both shades and window tint overlook a pool and beyond, a beach.

Window treatments, such as blinds, shades, and window tint, are not just about style; they are fundamental assets to protecting your living environment. These solutions work together to create a comfortable and protected living environment, from lowering heat and reducing glare to blocking harmful UV rays responsible for fading interiors and skin cancer.

Combining both window treatments and window tint will increase our well-being as both methods protect us from the harmful effects of too much light exposure. Here are the four core ways that combining window treatments with window tint will improve your day-to-day lives.

Reason No.1: Slow down furniture fading from UV Rays with Blinds, Shades, and Window Tint

Incorporating both window tint with either blinds or shades can help slow down fading of furniture and floors.

The sunlight piercing through your windows carries harmful ultraviolet light rays (UV) that dramatically accelerate the fading process within your home. UV rays cause fading by deteriorating coloring agents and molecular structures within a material’s surface, gradually compromising a home’s interior of its rich, colorful hues and integrity. Prolonged exposure to UV rays, visible light and solar heat makes up 90% of the fading process.

However, window treatments and quality window films are shields designed to slow the fading process. Home Windows with tint, such as 3M™ Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series, filter up to 78% of solar heat and block up to 99% of harmful UV rays while permitting 70% of natural light. Other window treatments, such as Hunter Douglas’ Designer Screen Shades, also curb up to 99% of UV rays.

Combining both window treatments and films is the most effective and stylish way to preserve the valuables in your home from the damaging effects of UV rays, ensuring they retain their vibrancy and longevity.

Reason No. 2: Blinds, Shades, and Window Tint Dramatically Lower Heat

Window tint and blinds or shades (or some type of window treatment) work in tandem to repel heat in your home. 3M™ Sun Control Window Film acts as a barrier that blocks up to 97% of heat-infrared light, and Hunter Douglas’ Duette Honeycomb Shades repels 60% solar heat from windows to effectively reduce the workload of your HVAC system, resulting in worthy energy savings year-round.

3M™ films are made of multiple layers of film that are designed to deflect the heat producing infrared rays. To add to the power behind window tint, honeycomb shades capture heat and create a barrier system.

Your home won’t just stay cooler in the summer but warmer in the winter, too! According to the Department of Energy, “Heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for 25 to 30 percent of residential heating and cooling use.” Consider window treatments, such as blinds, shades, plantation shutters or roller shades, in combination with 3M™ Prestige Films to experience stabilized temperatures, all while reducing your carbon footprint and saving money on annual energy bills.

Reason No. 3: Improve glare reduction when Window Tint, Blinds, and Shades are used together

Sunlight, left unfiltered, can create glare that reflects off surfaces and screens to disrupt your vision but our 3M™ window tint combined with either blinds or shades create a more comfortable space for your eyes.

3M™ Sun Control Window Film has been proven to reduce up to 77% of sunlight glare. At the sametime, window treatments are able to filter out glare.

During certain times of the day, you can set your motorized shades to automatically close with just a click of a button or the use of your cell phone. Window tint combined with either shutters, shades or blinds work together to create the best defense against reducing glare.

Reason No. 4: Protection for Skin Cancer when Window Tint, Blinds and Shades are in your Home

Beyond its protective qualities, window tint combined with blinds or shades safeguard your health.

By blocking harmful UV rays, they significantly reduce sun radiation exposure, lowering the risk of skin cancer and other UV-related health concerns. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, ultraviolet radiation is the No.1 cause of skin cancer.

However, with our high quality window treatments and 3M tint products, you can soak up the sun’s natural light to the fullest without worrying about its damaging effects.
