Frosted Window Film

Frosted film is perfect for providing window privacy at any time of the day or night, retaining its qualities even once you switch the lights on after dark.

It comes in a range of standard white variants, allowing you to choose a matte or sparkle look to suit your décor. You can even choose a variety that is more resistant to fingerprints and greasy marks if you have young children or pets at home.

As well as its use for windows, you can also create a stylish finish to glass surrounds and cabinets in your kitchen. Versatile and hardworking, this is a classic choice for any home.

Etched Glass Look

Emulate the expensive look of etched glass with window privacy film. This beautiful option is perfect if you favour the vintage look…at a fraction of the price of the real thing! If you prefer a more modern vibe, you can also choose designs with words or cut-out contemporary patterns to update your home.

One-Way Mirror/ Reflective window film

One-way mirror  (or also known as reflective) window film provides the ultimate in privacy for windows during the day. Ideal if you have a window facing a busy street or simply value the security it affords, this option is the easy and affordable alternative to installing one-way mirror glass. One-way mirror window films also offer UV protection and heat rejection to give you the ultimate day-time privacy, in a cooler, bright but safe environment.   Unlike frosted film options, this film will still allow you clear vision outside your windows, with the peace of mind that people cannot see in.

Please note that you will still require blinds or other window treatments on windows with mirror film installed, as the privacy effect relies on a light imbalance.  Once the lights are on inside your home, and it is dark outside, the privacy effect is lost.
