Ample amount of sunlight is a beneficial addition in any house. When the house faces west and receives lots of solar energy at front, it leads to anger, anxiety, and tension within the house when not properly controlled. To reduce the light to the right extent, use shades, drapes, or shutters. Hang the faceted crystal at the west windows so the received light converts into different rainbow colors due to dispersion.
