Stained Glass Windows

Stained glass windows are beautiful, I think we agree on that. Sadly, most people still think they are reserved for churches and other eminent buildings. While it is true that the real thing, the actual stained glass is very expensive and out of reach for your average homeowner, there is a fantastic alternative - stained glass window film.

Window films offer a cheap and wonderful way to transform an ordinary window or door into a beautiful stained glass window. Affordable do-it-yourself alternative, easier than curtains or shades and very easy to change, if you get tired of it. If you want to see some examples, go here.

Window Films – What Are They?

Window film is a general term used to describe a protective layer of film, made of polyester and metal alloys. Window films can be installed on any glass surfaces to provide solar protection, privacy, glass enhancement, or simply just aesthetically pleasing surfaces. They come in different variants and can simulate the look of an etched, frosted or stained glass.

Installing window films is a breeze. All you need is a spray bottle, a squeegee, a utility knife, and about 15 to 30 minutes of your time.

Here is a short video showing how easy it is to install decorative window film:
