Decorative
Window Film

Are you looking for a way to transform your space without spending a lot of money? Decorative window film may be just the solution for you. Decorative window film is usually thinner than solar or other types of tinting. You can use decorative window film on windows, doors, walls, or any other flat glass surface. Decorative film, also referred to as decorative glass finishes, can mimic the look of frosted or etched glass.

Frosted & Etched Glass

Etching is an artistic technique where a design or pattern is carved onto the glass by either acid etching, sandblasting, or molding. It’s expensive and only comes in limited patterns unless you pay even more money to get a custom design by a craftsman. An easier and more affordable alternative is frosted or etched glass window film. Decorative glass finishes look so similar to authentic etched glass that it’s hard to tell the difference.

Decorative window film is visually appealing and adds privacy. This combination of benefits makes glass finishes great for conference room walls, storefronts, or windows where you still want natural light but not as much visibility. Frosted glass films come in many different patterns and can be customized for a unique look. With varying levels of transparency, you can tailor the level of privacy to your requirements.

While there’s nothing wrong with etched glass, there are many reasons why you may want to opt for frosted window film instead. For starters, it’s a lot more affordable than the real thing. Window film is also easy to remove if you change your mind or end up wanting something different. While decorative window film lasts for years, you can always switch it up sooner. On the other hand, once the glass is etched, there’s no turning back. You’re stuck with that design forever. You can’t simply peel and remove the carving if you get tired of it like you can with decorative glass finishes.

Window film is also more sustainable because it adheres to the glass you already have. If you’re looking to get actual etched glass, you usually have to replace the existing glass. Not only does replacing the glass add to the cost, but it’s also wasteful. Along with getting rid of the old glass, you may have to get the new glass shipped and installed, which is another added expense. Fortunately, window film lets you redefine the space that you already have to create something beautiful.
