With tons of decorative designs out there, treat your window to something a little different and make the most of bright summer days
Perfect for street-facing rooms and over-looked windows, window film is going through a bit of a renaissance. If you don’t want to sacrifice light but would like a bit more privacy and security, then check out these new designs to revamp your home.
1. It’s a clean, modern alternative to curtains or blinds
With so many fabrics to choose from, buying curtains or blinds can be time consuming. Window film, on the other hand, will make your room feel bigger and brighter, and a pretty, cut-out design will add pattern and personality. You can order it pre-cut to your exact measurements, so no
trimming is required, making it an easy DIY job. Window films are easy
to remove and leave behind no residue.
2. It gives you extra privacy but still lets natural light flood in
Window film is a great way to deter nosy neighbours from peering through your window. Go for a large-scale pattern on the bottom half of your window only to allow maximum light to flood in. Neighbours might still stop and stare but only to admire the pretty motif!
3. There are some pretty cool designs out there
The Window Film Company has teamed up with surface designers, MissPrint, to offer six iconic looks. We love their retro Saplings design that is available as either a frosted (see below) or white printed pattern. These designs are great for disguising unpleasing views, too.
4. It’s a quick and inexpensive way to update a room
Priced from just £30 for a half window (depending on dimensions), window film is an affordable, quick and an easy way to update your home. Choose from modern or traditional designs, and if you change your mind they can be easily removed.
5. It can be used in bathrooms and on shower screens
It’s tough, durable and water resistant, which means it is suitable for application in damp locations, such as bathroom windows. It can even be used to jazz up a plain shower screen, disguising water marks at the same time!
