Decorating your home offers you the chance to personalize the space in which you live. You can make a generic space into a special place for you and your family to live and enjoy. Window treatments are naturally part of most interior decorating plans. What may not be part of your plan is window film. It is something, however, that you should consider when decorating your home.
The Reality of What Is on the Other Side of the Glass
Most of us would love to have wonderful views out of every window in our house. If you live in the middle of the mountainous wilderness, you may be that lucky. Unfortunately the rest of us may not be so lucky.
Do any of these views sound familiar?
- The front window is too close to the street. Everyone walking or driving by can see right into your living space unless you close the curtains.
- The bedroom window faces directly at the neighbor’s bedroom window. Unless you want to see Mrs. Jones in her intimates (or have her see you in yours), you have to keep your blinds down.
- The bathroom window faces a brick wall. You live very close to your neighbors and that window gets no light and has nothing attractive on the other side.
- The living room windows face directly south, getting all the sunshine year round. This has faded out the carpets and upholstery. It also makes that room very uncomfortable in the afternoons.
These views are extremely common all around Northern California. Window tinting is a semi-permanent solution that will fix those problems.
What options are available with window tinting?
Residential window tinting comes in many forms today. This makes integrating it with your interior decorating plans easy.
Here are some options to consider when making your decorating plans:
Tinted window film can protect your privacy. If you have a window that seems to let everyone see inside, this window film is the answer. It offers a reflective view to anyone on the outside, ensuring they cannot see in. Inside the house, however, you can still get plenty of sun and see what is going on in the world.
For windows that don’t have any kind of view, decorative window tinting is an option. This film comes in a variety of patterns that allow soft light to come in, but blocks the view from both inside and out. Some of the patterns available include frosted, geometric shapes, window panes, or bamboo. It is available in a variety of colors that you coordinate with your home’s color palette.
Large windows pose a real hazard during storms and earthquakes. Using security film is one way to keep your family safe during a natural disaster. The film adheres closely to the glass. If something breaks the glass, the film will keep it together, preventing shards from flying all about. It comes in all the patterns and colors of decorative film, just with the added safety factor.
