Window Films Treatment

Updated on August 29, 2016

Home and office owners use window film for various reasons:

  • Privacy
  • Safety
  • Protect from UV rays
  • Decorative flair

Privacy

For rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, window films and treatments can help to achieve privacy. You can obtain privacy and still let the ambient sunlight come through depending on the type of treatment you use.

Also for offices, window treatment can assist when confidentiality is necessary. It can also be valuable in separating office spaces.


Safety

Using certain window films can increase the strength of the glass and make it shatterproof. It bonds with the glass and can help to keep it from shattering into small shards which can be very dangerous. It will discourage and help to deter intruders from breaking into your home. Also, it can keep prying eyes from seeing your valuables and thwart vandalism.


Protection from UV Rays

There are solar control window films available which can cut your air conditioning costs. It will also protect your furnishings including your carpets, couches, chairs and even your clothes from damage from the sun. All of us have experienced sun fading due to exposure to sunlight. Also, it can help to prevent personal exposure to UV rays which cause skin cancer or other skin problems.

There are many decorative window films available to make your home or space more attractive. They are available in a variety of patterns, textures and colors to enhance any decorating style. They can be semi-translucent or opaque, depending on your needs. These windows films can enhance the beauty of your home without distracting from it. They can increase the value of your home when used properly and installed correctly.

    I've always wanted to try installing one of those that big. I've done smaller window decals like 12x12 but it's so effective when its done BIG! Fun stuff.
