Privacy is important for both your home and office environment, especially today. When you feel exposed to the outside world, it is difficult to feel safe and secure, particularly when your windows are visible from the street, from neighboring houses or offices, from parking lots or open spaces, or from other vantage points. And even though most people want to enjoy a nice view and natural light from their windows, exterior-facing windows can also leave us feeling vulnerable or insecure.
One way to resolve this conundrum is to add window privacy film to your existing windows. From the outside, window film darkens the window and is more reflective. It makes it much more difficult for anyone who is outside to see what is inside. This not only frees you from the feeling of vulnerability and self-consciousness that comes when someone may be watching you, but it also means that you are safer as a practical matter, because someone with bad intentions will not be able to see who or what is inside. Window film is a cost-effective way to provide you with the privacy you desire without making you sacrifice your ability to see out and to obtain natural light.
Additional Benefits of Tinted Window Film
When outsiders cannot see inside a building, they are less likely to try to break in. They don’t know if there is anybody inside, and they don’t know if they will find anything valuable. What is more, the film used for window tinting is very strong, and anyone who tries to break a window with tinted film will find that it is not so easy: the film holds the window glass together in one piece, meaning that a would-be burgler cannot just smash through your window in seconds and grab what’s in sight.
Window film also provides economic benefits. Today’s high-quality window-tinting film has high insulation value. It will keep heat outside on warm days, and heat inside on cold days. It can save you up to 30% on your energy bills in both summer and winter.
Window films also block up to 99% of damaging UV light. This means that the sun will do less damage to you and to your belongings, including protecting your wood floors, furniture, and carpets from fading.
Improving the Look of Your Home or Office
Window tinting can also improve the aesthetics of your home or business. It’s reflective qualities and smoky color can bring a modern, clean look to a building, updating its style. And if you don’t want just tinting everywhere, you can create privacy by adding decorative film. Mixing up the look of a building with both tinted and decorative films in interesting geometric or other patterns can make windows and spaces more eye-catching, as well as private.
Once you increase the security and privacy of your space from outside vantages, you can focus on interior privacy in areas like lobbies, private offices, conference rooms that often use glass walls, doors, partitions, or windows. Decorative films can create the look of etched or frosted glass minus the cost.
