It’s summertime once more in Minnesota. The sun is high in the summer sky, barbecue is on the grill, and it’s time to start thinking about taking the great American road trip. Even if you can’t take off across the countryside, most of us try to take at least one trip to the lake while the weather is still nice.
It’s summertime, and the sun outdoors can be bright and hard on the eyes. But on these long summer days, even the solar light inside a building can cause eye strain. Not only is that solar light tough on the eyes, but it also does a number on the interior of an office or storefront, causing furniture, art, and even flooring to fade and discolor.
It’s summertime here in Minnesota, and that means the mercury is climbing once more. When the temperature rises, your energy costs also start to rise. If you’re looking for ways to save big on your utility bills, you might add a ceiling fan or consider investing in new windows. But did you know that adding 3M window film to your home can lower your energy costs and save on maintenance expenses to your HVAC unit in the long run?
The look of your office workspace is part of what creates a productive, positive environment for your employees and clients alike. Often, glass barriers are used to separate the space within an office and create individual workspaces. Unfortunately, glass barriers in an office environment don’t do much to promote a sense of privacy many employees need to feel productive at work. It can also make clients feel uncomfortable to know others are looking on as they make important business decisions.
There’s really nothing quite like the beauty of natural hardwood floors. Hardwood is a classic flooring option that looks stunning in almost any home. In a contemporary home, hardwood offers a bold, modern complement to clean lines. In more traditional homes, hardwood adds a layer of charm and class. Whether you’ve got sleek, modern hardwood or rustic hardwood flooring, what you don’t want is to see it lose its luster after a few years in the sun.
If you’re blessed with a home with an abundance of windows, you know it can be tough to find a balance when it comes to window coverings. Bright, open windows are beautiful in the right lighting, but when the sun’s light hits them directly, it can be tough to manage indoors. The sun’s heat can be miserable in the direct light, and those bright rays can cause a good deal of damage by lightening your art, furniture, and floors. Automated blinds are one of the most popular solutions to this problem, but they’re not without their downside.
Your home is your sanctuary from the world, and great interior design is key to creating the perfect cozy environment. Using the principles of design to create a beautiful space can give your home an entirely different feel. But no matter how much time and effort you put into interior design, if you’ve got a window facing the direct sun, it can completely sabotage the look of a room.
Your office is an important representation of your company’s image. When clients stop by, your ability to create a professional appearance can leave a lasting impression on them. An attractive office that reinforces your brand image is your best bet for making that impression a good one, but fading from the sun’s UV rays can make your office look worn out and shabby.
There’s nothing like the warm feel of sunshine on your face, and everyone loves a brightly lit office or home. But all of that sunshine can leave a not-so-lovely impact on the floors of your home or office. Those golden rays of sunshine are also filled with harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays, which can cause serious damage to your flooring.
