I saw a demo of this product recently and really like just about everything about it. I’m hoping a certain company gives me one for free so I can try it out myself. Hint. Hint. Hint.
Ok, enough grovelling for goods – on with the highlights. Light Effects Window Film produces thin semi-opaque / semi-transparent vinyl sheets that can be easily mounted onto glass doors and windows for a frosted or designer look. Along with giving you something purdy to stare at (designs vary from simply frosted to etched lace to a stained glass look), these sheets add privacy, can reduce glare and heat from the sun while still ensuring a nice soft light enters the room.
Outward facing windows and French doors are well-suited for this product, but on the demo I saw, it was used on an interior sliding glass door – the type that is very popular in condos. It went from embarrassing-patio-door-in-the-middle-of-your-home to stylish panel in just a few minutes.
As if I wasn’t wooed enough, the installation is crazy easy – you trim the sheets to fit the space, spray the glass with a water bottle and use a squeegee to apply the window film and just smooth it out. The sheets are also very easy to remove when the time comes to change things up, will not leave anything behind on your glass and can be reused. LOVE! It’s an affordable and simple home reno pick-me-up that’s ideal for both home owners and renters.
Light Effects Window Film is available in 24” x 36” sheets in a variety of designs through a variety of retailers. Sheets cost between $24 and $33 depending on where you go.
