        What is the difference between traditional window foil and Squid?

        What color works best for my situation?

        If you are struggling with finding out what color would work best, use the below guidelines to help aid in your decision making.Ā 

        • If you are looking for a lot of privacy, choose a colorĀ that is as light as possible. With a light colorĀ (Chalk or Bone) it is more difficult to look inside than with a dark color.
        • If you are looking for a lot of sun protection, choose a light color. After all, it reflects most of the solar energy.
        • If you are looking for a nice and sharp view to the outside (or a nearby room), then choose a dark color. Coal (black) gives you the most visual contact with the outside world.
        • If you are looking for light reduction to reduce annoying light reflections in your computer screen, choose a dark color. These absorb more light than the light colors.
