Choosing the Right Home Window Film for Privacy
Choosing the Right Home Window Film for Privacy

Privacy has always been every homeowner’s priority for their family whenever they’re home. The walls of your home are there to protect you and give you privacy, but what about your glass window panes for sliding doors made of glass? Actually, there’s an effective method of safeguarding yourself from prying eyes—window film. There are quite a few types of window film out there, each with its own advantages. All of them offer some level of privacy and protection from UV rays. Let’s discuss what’s the best window film that will suit your needs.

 

Solar Window Film

Solar window films are the best choice if you want to protect your indoors from the sun’s harmful rays. If you notice your furniture is fading over time or when it feels hotter than it should be, then you probably need a solar tint as a solution. They’re also quite good at providing privacy as there are darker tints of solar window films out there to make the inside of your home a lot less visible to outsiders.

 

Privacy Window Film

Now, if you still want protection from UV rays but are more concerned about your privacy, then a privacy window film would be the best choice for you. This is a one-way film that does a great job of preventing people from the outside from seeing the inside of your home. They still provide some level of UV protection but not as much as solar window films. Privacy window films are actually further divided into different levels of opacity:

  • Blackout Film – This type of privacy window film blocks all or nearly all of the light that would otherwise enter the room and provide two-way privacy. It has a reflective appearance from the outside, but the film looks completely black on the inside. They’re a great way to darken a room, especially if your windows face a busy street.
  • Translucent Film – This offers a middle ground between light and privacy, letting in soft light and brightening up the space while still providing a visual barrier. Translucent films are available in different patterns, colours, and shapes.
  • Whiteout Film – This type of film is often used to create separation within interior spaces with the same opacity and privacy as blackout films. However, instead of black, the glass looks white from both inside and outside, which gives a softer, less sombre mood in every room. Meeting rooms in offices and retail environments prefer this kind of material in their establishment.

 

Decorative Film

Finally, a decorative film can also be an option as it also provides a reasonable degree of opacity for privacy. However, the main difference is that there’s more focus on the extensive range of designs available for application. They’re more used for marketing purposes rather than for privacy, but they still provide enough protection to prevent prying eyes from looking inside. Frosted films are an example of a decorative film mainly used on shower doors to keep the bather out of view. 

 

Conclusion

Having some window tinting applied to your glass fixtures is one of the best investments you can make for the sake of privacy and security. They allow some level of flexibility and aesthetic value instead of relying solely on erecting walls at every corner of your house.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
