Glare can daze, distract, and ruin those all too perfect moments of tranquility. So the goal here is to, block Glare from entering your home and workspace, so try some of these effective methods:
Install of blinds
A straightforward solution is to install blinds. Blinds can instantly stop sunlight and glare from any window with a quick flick of the wrist. Effectively turn off the lights; shades are an excellent solution. However, blinds aren’t cheap, and finding the right style to match your home without fear of them quicking becoming out of style is risky.
Paint your walls in a bright color
If you find that your home is looking a bit dull, and positioned perfectly to bombard you with glare in your most visited common areas, it may be worth considering painting. By painting your walls in bright light colors, you can deceive your eyes and cut down that annoyance of glare from the sun. Contrast to the shine of the windows leads to the increased glare of the sun. However, a bright room reduces this contrast, which decreases the impact of the sun has your eyes. A workaround for sure, but it’s an activity and solution that’s practical.
Buy an Awning

What I’m trying to say is that you can save the planet, and eventually, block glare when your newly planted tree grows ups. Remember, a strategy is essential for a great outcome, by strategically planting trees, plants, and flowers, you can eventually block out sunlight and give your home/office some much-needed shade. Not to mention, it’s going to look pretty, out front of your home/office. Your green thumb might be good enough to get those awning hating neighbors of yours to change their minds about you.
