You’ve probably seen decorative window film in various places on a daily basis. Sometimes, it is seen on storefront windows, in restaurants, and in office spaces. But what about in the home? You’ll be surprised to learn that many homeowners use decorative film for privacy. Decorative window film adds a touch of style that is affordable and functional. What exactly is decorative window film? How can you use decorative film at home? What are some common uses for decorative window film in homes, offices, and workspaces?
In this post, we’ll discuss 3 different types of decorative window film and how many of our clients have used it at home and in the workplace.
Frosted window film is pretty self-explanatory: it’s a film that has a frosted look. This type of film is applied directly to windows and is a great way to add style and privacy. What isn’t often known about frosted window film is that it can be permanent or temporary. The adhesive determines the permanence of the frosted film.
How has frosted window film been used, and what are the options? For business customers, frosted film has been applied to conference room windows, glass cubicles, public-facing windows, bathroom windows, and even refrigerators with glass fronts.
What about homeowners? More and more of our San Francisco Bay Area neighbors have discovered the benefits of frosted window film. For instance, customers have requested frosted window film for their bathroom windows. Others wanted more privacy in closets with windows that are visible to others. Frosted window film can be applied to the lower part of a window, allowing the upper portion to have unobstructed views.
What are the most common frosted films that we install? Here are 3:
- 3M Crystal: Gives the look of sandblasted or etched glass at a fraction of the cost.
- 3M Fasara: Gives your glass the look and feel of etched, cut sandblast and textured glass
- 3M Frost: Come in a permanent or a temporary adhesive to allow for easy removal for events or short term applications.

Create Privacy with Vinyl Window Film
If you want to create privacy with long-lasting impact, vinyl window film is a great choice. It is often used to create impactful window graphics. For instance, vinyl window film can be used to create privacy graphics that work well on conference room glass. This allows for a layer of privacy while allowing for light transmission.
Vinyl window film can help you to bring the wow factor to your office or workspace. We’ve created some pretty amazing designs that not only bring privacy but add visual interest and creativity to otherwise standard spaces. Doctors’ offices, technology companies, restaurants, and other businesses have taken advantage of vinyl window film’s ability to completely transform their spaces. Furthermore, we can custom design vinyl window graphics and produce them in-house, making ClimatePro a unique partner to have in your corner.
What is Blackout Window Film
If total privacy is what you are looking for, blackout (and whiteout) window film is an ideal choice. The film’s name explains exactly what it does: it turns a transparent window or door into a completely opaque one. This kind of film allows for no light transmission and can be used in places where you don’t want to replace the glass but need total privacy.
You’ve probably seen blackout film in use and didn’t even realize it. For instance, many department stores use this film on windows and doors where privacy is needed. Bathrooms, restaurants, and garage door windows are other places where this film is used.
