Glass breakage protection from golf balls with solar window screens

Lakeway TX Sun Control Window Shades

Solar window screens affix to the outside of home’s window. Solar window shade screens, the way they correctly install/mount, do not provide glass breakage protection for the glass. These guys often get confused with screens that do provide breakage protection for your glass.

This home sits on a golf course. This customer wanted these heat shade window screens for them to provide shade, but he also wanted something to provide breakage protection of his glass from golf balls being hit from the golf course. Do not confuse the two. Now, if he were able to install the solar window screens about four inches off of the glass, then yes, I could see that they would provide quite a bit of protection for your glass.

Now, these guys, these solar window screens, that’s not how they mount. Watch this solar screen installation video.  They directly mount to the window frame, which places them within an inch off of the glass. If you live on a golf course, and you’re looking for a way to protect your glass, these are something you could use, but you would have to get creative with your mounting techniques.

Like, for this home, we could have made these rascals so that they would screw to the brick of the outside of this brick exterior, not mount to the window frame. It’s not a installation technique that I do, but it’s something I guess you could do yourself. It would involve you having to drill pilot holes into all of the bricks mortar, so it would be an extensive installation process, but, nevertheless, it could be done.

Hands-On-Experience as an Interior Decorator

It takes time and experience to become an interior decorator. A decorator, like
a musician or painter, develops her craft over time. On-the-job experience is
one of the best educations for a future interior designer. The obvious place
to start is with your own home. You can even start with a small room or
apartment. Once you feel comfortable with your ideas and skills, offer to help
decorate a friend’s home or apartment. A family member or friend may be at a
point of transition in their life such as a new baby, a divorce, or a marriage.
In many cases, these are perfect times to spruce up or change a living space.
They may really appreciate the help that an aspiring decorator can offer.

Another option is to seek out local retail businesses in the area. Offer your
services for a minimal fee or free of charge. Perhaps help to decorate stores
and store windows for the holiday season. The goal is to learn and develop your
craft. Working for a decorating business or apprenticing with an interior
decorator provides a wealth of experience. Working under the critical eye of an
experienced designer is a good idea. All of these activities are great ways to
acquire hands-on experience.

Please take a look at this picture here and you will see that the window shade fabric color that we used is the chocolate. We used the white frame. This color combination looks really good on this home, and with your home and our help, we will make sure that your home looks equally as good.

We always give recommendations to homeowners as to what color combinations would look best on their home. In addition, we will always help a homeowner by advising them whether or not they should use the 80 percent or 90 percent solar screen fabric or combination of the both. We are big fans of using the 80 percent solar window shade fabric for the entire house with the exception of those windows that face the West that get four hours or more of afternoon sun.

Champagne framed, solar window screen installation

Lakeway TX Sun Blocking window Screens

As illustrated in this solar screen installation picture, you have a bronze, or brown, framed window. We chose to use the champagne frame. I think the champagne solar window screen frame with the brown window frame turned out beautifully. We used the chocolate fabric and the champagne solar screen frame in combination with the brick exterior and the color of the window frame. It’s an unusual look, but it’s a really pretty look. In these situations, where you have a home that looks similar to this, I would urge you to give this color combination a try.

Pop-Decor as your Austin Home Stager

Staging a home involves all of the senses, even touch and smell. A professional
stager is an artist that uses all these senses to coordinate and conjure a
grand vision. In some ways, a costume designer does the same in the
movies—picking out just the right shade, texture, trim and color of apparel
that will deliver the most impact. If it’s a period movie, chances are the
clothing items will be accurate period pieces. There is also a little illusion
and trickery involved, in that staging a room is meant to accent all of its
attributes with the use of certain items or props. Empty rooms make for
lackluster visual subjects and only show stark dimensions. Staging a room or
outside patio deck with the use of furniture and other items can show the full
potential of what a room really looks like or can look like “fully clothed.”

Furniture is used to showcase rooms in such a ways as to set off the décor.
Certain styles, colors and sizes are used to fill empty space and create an
attractive balance. A professional Austin House Stager will know what individual pieces to
use and how they affect the certain “look” they’re after. Light colored sofas,
ottomans, recliners, tables, rugs and beds do well since they “open up” the
room space. However, if accent is required, dark pieces can evoke a different
mood and focus attention. The goal is to show a fully furnished accommodation
but to eliminate any cramped or closed in feeling.

Each room has its own personality or character. The kitchen is the heart and
soul of any home. Kitchens really spruce up if wooden cabinets are rubbed with
scented oil or repainted in a lighter, warmer shade. Kitchen lighting can be
adjusted to either dim or brighten the surroundings. Ceiling panels should be
straight and even (no sags), or replaced if they are cracked. Bathrooms should
remain bright and airy, and displays of scented candles and soaps, towels tied
with ribbons, baskets filled with spa products and exceptionally clean mirrors
do wonders to set off a bathroom. Windows should be equipped with screens and
drapes—nothing detracts from a room more than the sun glaring through a foggy
or dirty window. Dining rooms look less naked and more inviting if attractive
throw rugs are under feet. Strategically placed wall pictures will bring a nice
touch of elegance to a living room or hallway wall. If the home has a small
foyer, potted plants like small palms, ferns or long stem (live or artificial)
flowers go a long ways to show an inviting atmosphere. In fact, any healthy and
green potted plants, small trees or flowers give the environment that “living”
touch, often adding a pleasant fragrance to the house.

Other small but significant items to use in your Austin TX Texas home staging project include custom pillows,
baskets, plastic chair and tables (patio), coffee table books, table and floor
lamps, statuary, wind chimes and other small items that suggest thoughtful
touches. Whatever furnishings, items or props used, the idea is get away from
that skeletal look and present an organic, livable residence that is
well-balanced and roomy.
