The apartment is perfect for you; not too big, not too small, a kitchen you can actually cook and move around in, bedrooms for everyone, and a nice deck off the back looking over the cityscape you love so much. It is perfect except for one problem; your bedroom set of windows looks directly into the apartment building next door. It is not just the apartment building, however, it’s directly in line with Mr. Smith’s bedroom window and Mr. Smith doesn’t use curtains.
Do not be upset. The apartment or home of your dreams does not necessarily have to be ruined because of a bad view out a set of windows. There is a product on the market that can eliminate the effects of a negative view called decorative window film, and it can give you the view of your dreams. Decorative window film works in much the same way as the seasonal decorations for windows, referred to as “window clings” do. All that is required is a smooth, clean window or mirror, a couple of minor tools like a ladder and a squeegee, and you can have your mural up in no time at all. However, if you choose not to try the installation yourself, there are professional paperhangers that would be happy to help you out.
The advantages of the decorative window film are many. Perhaps the most popular is the fact that the window films can cover a window totally, giving you complete privacy while blocking harmful UV rays and reducing your heating/cooling costs. The window film is placed on the inside of the window and the resulting effect of the sun hitting the backside of the image is an illuminating one. Imagine looking out your windows at a scene of trees in the autumn, covered in vibrant yellow, orange, and red leaves. The radiant effect on an image such as this is amazing and almost makes the scene glow. What a beautiful scene to gaze upon.
Perhaps you do not wish to block out everything from the view. If you need something to cover the windows but still wish to have some viewing available, partial privacy window films can also be installed. These particular films still have vibrant, beautiful colors and pictures, offer UV protection, and reduce heating/cooling costs, but they also let in a certain amount of light and allow a slightly muted vision both looking in and looking out.
Not only does the decorative window film do a great job at muting or eliminating undesirable views, but they also add a lovely decorative element to any room. Imagine a child who loves sea life. The room is decorated with vibrant colors of the sea and images of sea creatures. What better way to add to that beautiful setting than having their very own bit of the sea right in their room? Using a sea life window film to cover the windows will not only give them privacy, but will add a great deal to the attractiveness of the room.
Many styles of front doors are made up of large glass panels, allowing any and all passers by to see into your home. Adding a beautiful decorative element such as a window film can reduce the area of visibility, offering more security, while adding to the beauty of the home itself and allowing light to filter through.
Personalization of the images used for the films allows anyone to take a suitable photograph and turn it into a covering for windows or mirrors. Perhaps you have a favorite photo from your vacation last year of that absolutely breathtaking view. Provided the picture is large enough (usually 300 dpi), your personal photo can be turned into a piece of artwork for your window, mirror, or other surface in your home or office. Whatever your needs, decorative window films can indeed give you the view of your dreams.
Using just water and a squeegee, it’s easy to install static cling window film for the view of your dreams! And don’t forget about other great products like nursery wall stickers to liven up your baby’s room.
