Most of us will automatically think of fast cars and tall
towers when we think of Window Film, but its quickly taking its place as a
commonly used solution for residential use. More and more people are turning to
window film as a cost-effective way to cover their windows.
We have leapt out of the box and have left it miles away
with the possibilities of window film. Faux stained glass, faux wrought-iron
work, company logos, patterned films, frosted films, layered, safety & even
bird distraction films. Truly, anything you can think up can be presented as a
film in a way to meet your needs: Have a favourite landscape from your last
vacation? The coral reefs you photographed while diving off the coast? That
perfect sunset? What would you like to see up in your windows?
We are also seeing the introduction of beautiful faux
wrought-iron work for our clients’ windows. Often seen as a front-door
sidelight application, they feature a frosted privacy layer and well as a
decorative design overlay; all while inherently adding to the shatter
resistance of the window glass.
A personal favourite of mine is Apex Window Film’s “Abstract
Leaf Matte” shown here. Soft and delicate, this film will provide privacy and
help soften the direct sunlight. Not necessarily a stand-alone product, window
films also pair beautifully with other window treatments. Add a smart little
roller shade and step-up the look with an additional feature for windows that
One thing to consider when entering the world of window film
is to ensure you factor-in the installation cost. While some considerable
savings can be made in choosing film over other products, its installation can
be tricky and install charges can end-up cancelling any savings made here.
All in all however, window film is not a product to be
overlooked in the search for the perfect window treatment and can inexpensively
add a playful “peek-a-boo” element to existing shades.
