Draperies and window treatments can be used for the light control. The sunlight like the UVB and the UVA are damaging to both the people and to the homes. When the home gets harsh and direct sunshine, it may raise the interior temperature, it can fade the wood floors; dull the cabinets, dry the leather and it can washout the fabrics. The window treatment helps to protect the home against too much sun and you should consider the treatment based on the protecting ability of these treatments. To get complete control, go for the draperies and window treatments like blinds or shutters that are made in the metal, vinyl or wood since when they are put on, they can block the sun completely.
