Why Upgrade Your Bathroom Privacy With Window Film

Whether you live in the middle of nowhere or in a crowded urban area, the one place that you need the most privacy in is your bathroom. Unlike rooms like your bedroom or living room, installing blinds or curtains in a bathroom can be a pain as the high humidity can turn them into mould magnets. 

Glass blocks look great but are an expensive option that you wouldn’t want to take on, especially if you’re renting.

Privacy Window Films Come to The Rescue

Privacy window films come in various different styles and patterns. The most popular style for bathrooms is frosted window film which mimics the appearance of etched glass. It allows natural light in while keeping peeping eyes out. They are easy to install, which means you have little to no downtime when it comes to being able to use your bathroom!

An added advantage to frosted window film is that, unlike tinted glass, it provides privacy at night too. 

Unaffected by Humid Environments:

Privacy window films are made of vinyl aka PVC. This means that water simply rolls off them. Since they don’t absorb water, they don’t create an environment where mould can grow. The natural light they let into the bathroom helps prevent mould from growing too. 

The water resistance means that your kids can splash around the bath as much as they want, without you having to worry about the film coming off.

Privacy window films are easy to clean too. You can simply wipe off soap suds, lotions and oils with a damp rag for your windows to look brand new again. 

Let There Be Light

There’s nothing like natural light when you’re getting dressed. Privacy window films let in natural light while still protecting your skin from harmful UV rays when you’re at your most vulnerable. Depending on your bathroom window, you can also play around with how much film is used to create a decorative pattern and provide privacy only where you need it. For example, you could only frost the lower half of your window, letting the full spectrum of sunlight in from the upper half. 

Additionally, privacy window films can also prevent heat loss from your windows, helping you keep your bathroom warm and cozy when you step out of a long shower during the cold winter months. 

Increase Security:

Most burglars break in through doors and windows during times when everyone is out at work. Privacy window films with an added security function can reinforce the security of your home. Not only does it prevent burglars from looking in, but the security feature also prevents the glass from shattering so they cannot get into your home. The same feature also protects your family from splintered glass in case of adverse environmental events like earthquakes, storms that blow branches into your windows or a ball thrown awry. 

Privacy window films are just the ticket when you want to maintain privacy indoors but still allow light in. Frosted glass window films also add a decorative motif to your bathrooms. You can also use them for basement windows, kitchens, or other rooms where privacy is essential.
