Things are really moving along in my upstairs bathroom makeover. Since I have fancied up my window with a fake roman shade, I needed to do something about the privacy in there. I decided that using window film would be a great idea to give us the coverage we needed but still look nice on the window.
>When Wallpaper for Windows contacted me about their many options in window coverings, I thought it would be the perfect solution. If you’ve never used window film before, you don’t know what you are missing. It’s a great option for windows, showers, doors and more spaces in your house where you need a little privacy.
Wallpaper for Windows has an amazing selection of products to use for your windows, showers, doors and more. Their films come in many colors and patterns. I chose the lite frost, because it would let some light in, but still give us some cover. The wonderful people there sent me one of their pre-cut sizes to use in my bathroom. Plus they trim to any size if you want something you can install and go!
They provide you all of the instructions and a credit card-like piece for smoothing later. But first, let’s do the install. It’s super easy.
First, measure your windows and then add half an inch on each side for a total of an inch more in the two measurements. For example, my window was 19 1/4 x 20 1/2 so I cut a piece 20 1/4 x 21 1/2. Then cut your piece (or if you get the pre-cut, you are all set).
Add some water and a few drops of dish or hand soap to a spray bottle, and after you clean your windows, spray it down with your soapy water solution.
Then you simply peel the film away from the paper backing, being careful not to let it stick to itself and place it on your window. Then you use your credit card to smooth out any bubbles in the film, working from the middle out.
Since your window is wet and slippery, the film can be shifted slightly and you’ll get all the water off as you smooth.
To trim the extra, grab an exacto knife and carefully slide down the edge of the window where you want it to fit.
That part is easier than it even sounds. The trim will come right off. They say you can leave about 1/8th of an inch of space from the edge of the film to the edge of your window frame for temperature changes.
And that is it! Look at the difference in privacy it gives. The neighbors definitely will not be spying on us while we suds up.
I could see so many uses for this and the great part is that Wallpaper for Windows comes in so many patterns and colors too. They have stained glass, etched glass, and one-way films which I think are so neat. I could see them for a patio or pool area.
Wallpaper for Windows is also on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+ so you can stay in touch with their new designs and offers. It’s an easy way to decorate or add privacy to any smooth, non-porous surface. Plus the film is adhesive-free, removable, re-useable, reduces glare and protects against harmful UV rays.
I can think of tons of uses for it and I bet you could too, so we’re giving you a chance to win one $75 gift card at Wallpaper for Windows.com! Enter via Rafflecopter below and let me know what you plan to do with your Wallpaper for Windows products.
