Are you looking for fun and creative ways to liven up your space? While home décor and design changes are always an option, there’s an even more unique way to transform your home: decorative window film. From kitchens to bathrooms, you can use decorative window film in practically every room of your home. In addition to enhancing aesthetics, window film is also a great way to add privacy to an area. If you’re looking to switch things up or make a space more secluded, here are some ways you can use decorative window film in your home. 

Residential Applications for Decorative Window Film

Front Entryways & Foyers 

Glass entryways and foyers let in abundant amounts of light, which isn’t always a good thing. Whether the plain glass is feeling uninspired or you want to block out the light, decorative window film can completely change the look of your entryway. Window film also reflects heat and UV rays to help you save energy and protect your furniture from UV damage. From frosted glass to stained glass designs, you can go as minimal or creative as you want. 


Even if you work remotely, home offices still need privacy. Decorative window film not only adds privacy to your office; it can also elevate the design. Reducing distractions and creating a comfortable, inviting office atmosphere will increase your productivity and help make your office more of, well, an office, instead of another room in your house that you happen to do work in. 

Closet Doors 

Some homes have glass closet doors, which can make unorganized storage areas an eyesore. Using decorative window film on closet doors hides the mess and adds another visual element to your space. 

Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets with glass inlays are great if you want to show off fancy china or dishes. But not everyone keeps family heirlooms anymore, and you might not want everything in your cabinets on display. Applying decorative window film to kitchen cabinets will keep things looking clean and fresh without you having to worry about how things look behind the glass. Whether you have a modern or contemporary kitchen, you can get window film to match any design style. 

Shower Doors

If you’re looking for fun ways to makeover your bathroom, consider adding decorative window film to shower doors. Not only will it enhance the look and feel of your bathroom, but it will also add more privacy. Decorative films, whether it’s a frosted tint or etched design, can make a bathroom feel more elegant and put together. You can cover the entire doors for complete privacy or add film to certain areas where more coverage is needed. 

Bathroom Windows

Another useful area to apply decorative window film in your home are the bathroom windows. Some bathrooms have small windows where privacy isn’t too much of a concern, whereas other bathrooms have large bay windows semi-encircling the bathtub or glass walls that leave the inside completely exposed. No matter how much or how little privacy you need, decorative film can transform your bathroom’s design. For instance, natural woodgrain or leafy patterns can contribute to a relaxing, spa-like feel.
