Blinds and shades protect your electronics from direct sunlight. They let in filtered light, but keep UV ray damage at bay. Investing in light control solutions is a smart choice for any room with computers and television screens, but especially if the room has many windows that allow sunlight in throughout the day.
Why should you worry about UV rays and your electronics?
Reduce Dark Spots
It’s a problem if you live in a sunny state like Utah — your TV screen could develop dark spots if it gets too much sun exposure over time. The same goes for your computer screen.
Unless you bought an outdoor TV, you need to take the proper precautions to make sure the screen isn’t exposed to UV rays all day, every day. Otherwise, you’re going to notice a declining quality in the picture.
Blinds and shades protect your electronics by preventing the sun from shining on the screens. A bright, sunny room is perfectly safe for your computer and TV, as long as the sun isn’t directly hitting the screens day after day. Find blinds and shades in a style you like, and make sure they have good light filtration to protect your screens.
Keep Your Toys Safe
Another way blinds and shades protect your electronics is by blocking them from an outsider’s view. If criminals are scoping out a neighborhood, an unimpeded view can reveal when you’re not home and what you have to offer.
Draw your new, protective blinds or shades when you leave, and keep your electronics out of sight. Part of home security is ensuring you aren’t a prime target, and window coverings can help.
Get the Most Out of Your Electronics
Since you invested time and money in your home theater setup, make sure you get the most out of your movie-watching experience. Install blinds or shades that reduce glare and help you enjoy your sunny afternoon of film-watching. You need window coverings in your home office too, whether you’re working or gaming on your PC monitors.

Choosing the right blinds or shades is both an aesthetic and functional decision. You need them to let in enough light, but not too much. You need them to jive with your home decorating style, not stick out like an eyesore. What type is right for you?
