Blinds and shutter are attractive, but hide the beauty of windows and darken rooms when closed. These types of window coverings block the outside view. Curtains, whilst adding design appeal to a room, don't help in controlling energy gain and loss. Sun control window film alone offers protection from the sun while maintaining the full appeal of the unobstructed window view.
