Stained glass window film is often something we think of when we go to church or to grandma's house. It has gotten a bad rap over the last few years for being out dated and downright ugly. It is true that if not used and installed properly, the film will look nasty and tacky. The film can be purchased at just about any hardware or do it yourself craft store. I would like to encourage you to stay away from the really cheap stuff.
We have all heard that you get what you pay for and this is not different. If you buy the cheap stuff, it will look cheap and peel off and it will look nasty. You will have to spend time redoing it and money to buy better film. I urge you to skip this and just buy the good stuff from the get go. It will save a lot of time and money in the long run.
There are many uses for stained glass window film. Most people only think of front door windows. It is true that the film is perfect for covering the side panels on door for privacy. It also works well on doors because trying to buy custom blinds for some windows is horribly expensive and the blinds just don't look right. This type of film is perfect for privacy use and also letting the sun shine in. It will really help bright an entry way over covering the windows and making the area dark.
Have you ever thought about using it on other windows besides the front door? How about a bathroom window that is on a second story and really does not need privacy? If it is that high up, no one should be looking in. In a case like this, there are many different options. You can just go with a lightly frosted color and a pretty neutral shade. The film does not have to look like a stained glass window. It can be frosted in any color or even made to look like the glass is a certain color. The film does not have to be frosted out. It can be clear and this will allow the sun to shine in and put different colors in the room.
This decorating tip can be used in so many different ways. It can be used to add some color to a new house or to add some life to an old house.
