On a sunny day, glare could prevent you from staring at a computer screen or watching TV effectively, which is one of the most frustrating things about windows. Even so, natural lighting is important for health and life in general, so removing all windows from a home’s design is simply not a good option. In fact, the more the better as far as windows are concerned.

Thankfully, there are things which can be done to help prevent glare, such as with anti-glare window films. This is an interesting product which can be applied easily to any window. It works by filtering out some of the sunlight which it’s exposed to, to a degree, which helps reduce the chance of glare. It still lets some of the natural lighting into your room, just removing the excess, which means that you’ll still get all of the benefits of sunlight.


Rooflights are not a traditional window, which for many people is a reason not to have them installed in their homes. They are used to traditional windows, and the idea that they would go for something new which may adversely affect their home is unlikely, but there are a number of advantages offered by roof lights in comparison to a traditional vertical window.

A roof light does in fact permit more light to enter a home than a traditional window of a similar size, so at its basic level it is better in a lot of ways. There are also more design elements which can be employed with a roof light than a window, such a retractable roof light. These are roof lights which are sitting on top of a set of tracks, so that the window can be removed during warm and dry weather. There are also roof windows, which are outward opening windows, like a traditional window, only installed on the roof.
