Use bathroom window film to add privacy to your bathroom and shower enclosure
Today, many modern homes come with a big window next to bathtubs as an elegant indulgence. While it may be relaxing to have a large lookout window when you are enjoying a warm bath, privacy may be a concern. Many home owners face this dilemma. Many tried to resolve their problems by installing blinds or having a frosted glass, but the cost can be expensive. An effective and cheaper solution would be to use privacy window film.
Take the example of Kathy Sullivan who lived in Utah. She has a 6-by-4-foot bathroom window that faced traffic. Installing bathroom window coverings would mean that she will lose the beauty of any natural light that stream into the room. She initially looked into frosting the glass, but the cost of the bathroom window treatment would cost somewhere between $300 and $400. This price tag itself put her off.
She was attracted to the beauty and effective solution for a fraction of the cost instead by DIY window film. Sullivan said of the product, “It’s a wonderful stuff.” She ended installing window films not just on the large bathroom window but on several other windows as well. Visitors who visited her house had complimented her newly refurbished and beautiful windows.
Window glass film adds decorative accent to any window while obscuring visibility through windows that might be facing a busy street or an undesirable view. Hence, if you would like to hide a view from a window, you should consider window glass film as a possible solution.
Window glass films nowadays come as adhesive-free and there is no messy tools necessary. All you need to do is to spray water on the window with a spray bottle, then apply the window film. The film will stick to the glass. If you are using a permanent frosted glass, you will need to replace the whole glass and this is not necessary with window films. The best thing is you can always remove and store the window glass film away until you decide to use it again.
Sullivan said of the installation, “I have found this to be effortless. It’s actually fun!” Anyone can easily install window glass film by themselves as a DIY project. For a large window pane of a large glass door, it would be easier to install it with two persons.
Window glass films are suitable to be installed on shower doors and bathroom windows as they can withstand moisture and steam in the bath. When it comes to decorate a bathroom, window films for bathroom windows and shower doors come many varieties too. Most home owners would just opt for the opaque frosted glass window film or the light frost, a lighter version of the opaque.
There are also many other designs from the etched glass window film series that may suit you. The Glass block design for example, is a beautiful way to add privacy to a large tub window without sacrificing the light. If you love to try something more interesting, you can also try using stained glass film design. Some examples of using stained glass films design include the Atlantis, the Austin and the Biscayne.
The Atlantis privacy window films that are made up of colourful shards of glass that naturally creates a beautiful ambiance in any bathroom. The Austin privacy window film consists of versatile patterns that can even be applied on small areas such as cabinet doors. Biscayne stained glass window film consists of relaxing colours with nature as its theme.
Before you consider window treatments for bathrooms or shower door, why not check out window film? After all, you still get the all the benefits of a frosted glass at a much discounted cost.
