If you are working in a home office or are simply home more during the day now, daytime privacy may be one of your top concerns. Window film can provide a cost-effective solution for day and night privacy.
There’s nothing better than living in a friendly neighbourhood, but if you have transitioned to a home office or are spending more time at home, you might start feeling your neighbours are a little too close for comfort. You could put up blinds or close the curtains, but privacy film is a solution that can keep your room bright while giving you the privacy you crave.
Two different options, two different looks
There are two ways to achieve privacy at home by using film. You can ensure day and night privacy with frosted decorative film, obscuring the view from inside and outside. Frost film is available in various finishes and is customizable.
You can ensure daytime privacy by using a reflective solar film that allows you to see out, while those outside see a reflective surface. This option is best suited to a space where you want to see out during the day, but night time privacy isn’t required without the use of curtains or blinds.
Added benefits of privacy film for your home office
Many of us relocated to a home office space that was previously a spare room, a bedroom or a dining room. These spaces weren’t originally intended to be work-from-home spaces and as such, probably need a helping hand to help combat privacy issues, heat buildup and glare.
Bright sunlight brings a positive vibe to your working space in the short term but when you are working for prolonged periods, you may find your room becomes unbearably heated or that glare from the sun makes working at a computer difficult.
You could turn on your air-conditioning and re-organise your furniture, but privacy film is a simpler and more complete solution. It is the best window film for day and night privacy, transforming your home instantly.
Block the view, not the light
Frost film obscures the view from the outside but continues to let diffused, natural sunlight into your home office. Shutting out natural light completely can be detrimental to your mood and work performance but with window film, you get privacy while allowing natural diffused light.
Reflective film allows you to see outside throughout the day and continues to let shaded, natural sunlight into your office. It also has the added benefit of reducing heat, glare and UV rays. By reducing UV light, solar film helps protect your skin as you work and reduces the fading of your floors, furniture, art and books.
What is privacy film?
Window film, in general, is a thin covering that is applied to your existing windows. It’s quick to install, significantly cheaper than replacing the glass and can be maintained as you would a standard window.
Frost film or frosted window film has a degree of opaqueness applied to it. You can have a subtle effect or go for a fully opaque look to maximize your daytime and nighttime privacy.
Reflective window film is a darker film that allows you to see outside while maintaining your daytime privacy, offering a more comfortable work space.
Why privacy film?
Whether frosted or reflective, privacy film can be applied to one window or more, helping you balance your privacy and lighting needs throughout your home.
While working from home, privacy film makes a worthwhile investment, significantly improving your screen view, privacy, and temperature control. Enjoy the benefits while continuing to fill your home office with natural sunlight.
