Privacy window film is a convenient, affordable of window covering that can greatly improve your sense of security. The film, which is usually frosted or tinted, is easily installed on the inside of your windows to instantly obscure the inside of your home from prying eyes helping you feel more secure in your home. In addition to its security benefits, privacy window film can improve your home and finances in several other ways. Here’s what you should know about this type of security for your home and what to expect from installation.
Privacy from Neighbors
The main benefit of privacy window film is, of course, its ability to hide the interior of your home from neighbors and passersby. This can be particularly important for first-floor rooms in high-traffic areas, which can be especially vulnerable to outside attention. Upper floors in homes that are closely situated to neighbors and even bathroom windows may also benefit from a layer of privacy film. With privacy window film, you can shield valuable items from potential thieves, protect children from unwanted attention, and make your home the haven it should be.
Filtering Bright Light
Most window films offer privacy by creating a frosted or tinted covering for the windows. In addition to adding privacy, these features can also filter bright light as it enters your home and diffuse it into a softer light. Light filtration can protect you from harmful UV rays and prevent photos and other valuables from fading in the harsh sun, which can otherwise damage them beyond repair. With privacy window film, you can safely display your treasures without worrying about potential sun damage. It can also reduce glare in home offices and living rooms, making it easier to see computer and television screens.
Getting Rid of Window Treatments
Many families use curtains and blinds for privacy. Curtains often need to be taken down and washed, and blinds can easily break, creating extra chores and financial responsibilities in the name of privacy. They also obscure the light, meaning that you’ll have to sacrifice the enjoyment of sunshine if you want to keep the interior of your home private. Window film saves you time and money by making curtains and blinds unnecessary, while giving you privacy while allowing light to enter your home.
Privacy window film is an affordable way to protect your home. In many cases, it costs less than $10 per square foot for professional installation. Unlike do-it-yourself methods, you’ll only be paying for exactly how much window film you need, helping you save money and avoid waste. The average homeowner spends as little as $300 to hire professional privacy window film installers, though larger homes with more windows to cover will of course result in a higher, but still very reasonable, price. Speak with a local window film installer to get a quote for your home’s unique configuration and needs.
Easy Installation and Removal
Window film takes minutes to install. A professional installer will measure your windows, apply a liquid adhesive, and then place the film over the window. The installer will adjust as necessary before cutting the film to size and smoothing it down to stick. After that, your installation is complete, and you can immediately enjoy the benefits of your window film. If you no longer need privacy film because you’re selling the house, a professional installer can easily remove it just as quickly as it was installed with no damage to your windows.
Privacy window film can be as beautiful as it is functional. While some homeowners appreciate the simplicity of a frosted or lightly tinted window covering, others take the opportunity to add a decorative touch to their homes. Window film can use frosted or colored patterns in geometric shapes for a modern look, florals for an elegant touch of vintage charm, and more, allowing you to choose the ideal appearance for your individual style.
