What is Window Film?

Have you ever dreamt of having stained glass windows at home? What about etched or frosted glass on certain windows throughout your home? While the thought of replacing your windows in order to have these designs is costly (and if you’re a renter, it’s not even possible!), window film offers you a pretty simple DIY alternative. Available at most home improvement chains and online retailers, most of these vinyl films are of the peel and stick variety and can be cut to fit specific shapes and measurements. This means that you can literally transform your windows in a single weekend without ever needing to hire a professional.
