What is Privacy Window Film?

Privacy window film is a very affordable way to add privacy to your windows, glass doors, and shower enclosures. They come in a variety of textures and designs and can imitate the look of etched, frosted or stained glass. They can be easily applied to your existing glass windows, doors or any other glass surfaces. Great alternative for curtains and blinds.

These films are translucent which means they allow light to pass through the glass. Mirrored privacy films provide daytime privacy and allow you to see outside, but stop others from seeing in.

Along with providing you privacy, they are also UV resistant and reduce glare. Anywhere where you need light, but not the prying eyes, privacy window films are a way to go. For more info and some examples, click here.

D-I-Y Installation

Installation is very easy. All you need are a few common tools like squeegee, spray bottle, and a utility knife. A helper is recommended for large windows.

Here is short video showing how to install decorative window film for bathroom privacy:

The Benefits of Privacy Window Films

  • Increased energy savings
  • Protects furniture from fading
  • Makes glass surfaces safer, preventing injury from broken glass

The use of privacy window film has grown considerably over the last years. It's no wonder why homeowners like it. The fact is that the real etched, frosted or stained glass is very expensive. With window films you can have the same look at a fraction of the cost.

      Good summary of view control window film. Another advantage to film versus stained/etched glass is that if you decided you want the window clear again, you have that ability. Film can be removed at any time!
