Glass has become a major design trend for renovating homes and commercial office spaces, and with good reason.
Replacing interior walls with glass for offices, large rooms, entryways, and lobbies can redirect natural light from windows up to 40 feet deeper into a building or home, reducing dependency on artificial lighting and cutting energy costs. But does glass create a lack of privacy that outweighs your energy savings? Decorative window film addresses this concern and boasts other benefits to maximize the return on your energy savings investment. In this article, we’ll cover all of the benefits that decorative window film has in store for you.
Enhance the Level of Aesthetics
Decorative window film also enhances the aesthetics of any interior or exterior glass surface. You can select decorative film to customize your space with unique designs, prints, or patterns, including styles that resemble cut or textured glass. Window film is easy to clean and durable over time, but because the film can be applied and removed easily and inexpensively without damaging glass, you have the flexibility to change the look of your space at little cost.
Colorize Your Exterior Windows
Your window glass doesn’t have to be the same as every once else. Spice it up with colored decorative window film. You can get a decorative film that’s tinted (which also helps with UV rays) or a more vibrant color to play with how light enters your home. There are many benefits to having colorful windows. First, it improves the appearance of your home, and second, it draws attention to the home without being too overbearing.
Increase the Level of Privacy
Installing decorative window film provides an extra level of privacy for both homeowners and building owners. You can install frosted, tinted, or colored window film at various opacity levels to get the privacy you need without sacrificing natural light.
Maximize Your Energy Savings
One of the most considerable advantages of window film is its potential to significantly lower your energy bills. This means that the heat will be repelled during the summer and conserved throughout the winter; giving your HVAC system a break while saving money on electricity. With decorative window film, you can enhance the comfort of your residence or office space without investing in expensive window replacement.
Protect Yourself From Damaging UV Rays
Direct sunlight not only exposes us to sun damage, but also creates glares on computer screens and television screens, forcing employees and residents to rely on blinds and overhead lighting to tackle the problem. Decorative window film reduces the transmission of light through glass to diminish glares, making everyone more comfortable. Window film filters up to 99% of harmful UV rays, protecting you from skin damage while keeping your furnishings and flooring from fading.
Imitate Etched Glass
There is no doubt that etched glass is absolutely stunning on any building or home. However, the problem with this type of glass is that it’s very expensive. Decorative window film, however, can provide you with the same level of elegance without breaking the bank. Believe it or not, it’s pretty difficult to differentiate the two without actually touching the surface.
Easy to Remove
Are you tired of the current window film and you want to switch it with something else? No problem! Thankfully, it’s very easy to remove decorative film from your windows. There’s no sticky residue or mess left behind.
If you plan to renovate your office space or home, then you should definitely consider decorative window film so you can enjoy natural light, reduce energy consumption, maximize privacy, and add an extra level of protection for your family and/or employees.
