Capturing Sunlight: A Guide to Using The Bubbly Type's Sun Catchers

The simple pleasure of sunlight filtering through prismatic colours can brighten even the cloudiest of days. Sun catchers, those delicate and charming ornaments that scatter rainbows across your space, are a delightful way to invite the beauty of sunlight indoors. Among the many artisans crafting these pieces, The Bubbly Type stands out for their exquisite sun catchers that add a touch of magic to any room. This guide will explore how to effectively use and enjoy The Bubbly Type's sun catchers to create a whimsical and enchanting atmosphere.

1. Finding the Perfect Spot

Choosing the right location for your sun catcher is the first step in creating a stunning display. Look for spots that receive ample sunlight during the day, such as near a window or a glass door. South-facing windows tend to get the most direct sunlight, while east and west-facing windows offer a softer morning or evening glow.

2. Hanging and Positioning

Before you place sun catcher, take a moment to visualise the way sunlight moves through your chosen space. Consider the angle of the sun's rays at different times of day. This will help you determine the optimal height and position for your sun catcher. You might want to experiment with different heights and angles until you find the most captivating arrangement.

3. Choosing Your Sun Catcher

The Bubbly Type offers a diverse range of sun catcher designs, from minimalist but beautiful shapes to more intricate original designs. Choose a design that resonates with your style and complements your decor. 

4. Time and Angle Matters

The magic of a sun catcher lies in its ability to capture and refract light. As the sun moves across the sky, the angle of incidence changes, resulting in varying patterns of light and colour. Take time to observe how the sunlight interacts with your sun catcher at different times of day. You might be amazed at the kaleidoscope of colours that dance across your walls. Take note too, of the sun's position during different seasons. The rainbows will move spots depending on where the sun is positioned.

5. Care and Storage

To keep your sun catcher looking its best, there are a few things to do. Dust and dirt can accumulate on the surface and surrounding windows. To clean your windows always remove the sun catchers first to prevent any damage. Clean your windows as normal with glass cleaner. If the sun catchers are dusty you can wipe them gently with a lint-free cloth and water. Then you can reapply them to the window. To store while not in use, pop your sun catchers into a display folder or equivalent to keep them flat and dust free. 

6. Enhancing Ambiance

Sun Catchers aren't limited to windows alone. You can experiment with creative ways to incorporate them into your decor. They will cling to any glass surface so why not try some different spots. For example car windows, glass mirrors, glass shower doors, etc.

7. Sharing the Joy

Sun catchers from The Bubbly Type make wonderful gifts for friends and family. Their enchanting beauty can brighten anyone's day and add a touch of whimsy to their living spaces. Consider gifting a sun catcher for birthdays, housewarmings, or simply as a gesture of appreciation.
