It?s possible to purchase both patterned and striped window films as separate styles. But what happens when you merge both styles together? – The ability to benefit from patterned privacy window films with stripes.
Suitable for internal or external window glass, striped patterned privacy window films mimic various glass textures from etched glass to frosted glass. All in the form of stripes! This specialised window film category allows you to achieve a highly customised look, in that patterned stripes greatly enhance privacy compared with standard striped window films. By the same token, the use of stripes means the entire glass isn?t obscured by a pattern, as is often the case with patterned privacy window film, allowing more natural light into the room.
Here at Glass Films, our SOLYX® striped patterned privacy window films can be selected to match your exact needs. You?ll find styles which vary depending on the environment and required privacy levels.
Before making your purchase, here is an overview of window films which offer privacy through the use of stripes and patterns combined to guide you.
Window Film Patterned Privacy Stripes – Category Overview
Patterned privacy window films with stripes offer an additional level of customisation compared with patterned window films or striped window films.
Namely, the three aspects you?ll benefit from include patterns, stripes and privacy. All in the format of a window film that is easy to apply and remove.
There are various ways that stripes and patterns can create window privacy. This can include the close spacing between each of the stripes. The patterns applied to the window glass can also reduce the transparency of the window.
What Are Striped Patterned Window Films?
The most simple way of explaining striped patterned window films, is that they combine everything that a patterned window film and a striped window film can provide within one style. So instead of having to choose between stripes or patterned window films to create window privacy – you can combine both elements within one style.
Striped Window Films – The Practical & Cost-Effective Dupe For Window Blinds
All types of striped window films have a similar appearance to window blinds. The only difference being the look is applied directly onto the window glass, rather than having to install actual window blinds. With this particular category of window film, the stripes also have a pattern applied to them, which mimics natural glass textures.
There are several reasons why a striped window film (including with patterns) might work better for your needs rather than using window blinds specifically.
Ideal for rented properties – Window films offer a ?no drill? solution to gaining window privacy. The films are simply applied to the window glass and can then be removed whenever you wish.
Great for internal window glass – Window blinds or even curtains aren?t suitable for the likes of office glass or other internal partitions. Adding a window film with stripes creates privacy without the need to add unsuitable window coverings.
Won?t block natural light – Most window blinds obscure the light even when fully opened. This can make north-facing rooms in particular feel dimmer and colder during the winter months. But with window films the light can still shine through the window.
Far cheaper than real window blinds – The cost of window blinds has continued to spiral in recent years, especially custom blinds installed throughout the house. Window films offer a far more cost-effective solution.

How Do Patterns And Stripes Help Achieve Privacy In Window Films?
Standard window glass is completely transparent and does not offer privacy. The only way to gain window privacy without switching out the glass itself or adding a window covering, is to add a window film.
Most window films have privacy benefits. But with patterns and stripes, these offer specific properties to increase the opaqueness of your window. All while improving the aesthetic look of your windows at the same time.
Starting with patterns, these use designs such as etching, gradients or frosting to reduce the visibility through to the other side of the glass. This means wherever the patterns appear on the window film, the privacy of that window will be increased to your desired level.
With stripes, they offer a visual block at strategic intervals. The stripes can be wide with large gaps in between to offer moderate privacy. Or, the stripes can be placed much closer together offering a much higher level of privacy.
As we?re combining stripes and patterns within this category of window film, you can achieve both looks within one window film, instead of having to choose between styles!
Striped Patterned Window Films – Usage Ideas
Patterned privacy window films with stripes can be used in various ways within residential or commercial buildings. Many of these uses overlap with separate patterned or striped window films.
So when these two styles combine, how can they achieve both window privacy and style?
Here are some of the top ways striped patterned privacy window films can enhance the look of your window glass, while keeping prying eyes out.
Overlooked Or Street Facing Window Glass
Even if you get on well with your neighbours, nobody wants the likes of their kitching, living room or bedroom to be a visual free for all.
In instances where you can?t create window privacy through new window glass, blinds or curtains, window film will instantly do the job. Plus, with striped patterned window films, it will mimic the look of a window blind in a stylish and cost-effective way.
Likewise, for homes built onto the street without any or much garden space, people walking by may be able to see straight into your windows. Not only is this inconvenient but could also be a security risk.
Any such overlooked glass which makes you feel uncomfortable or even unsafe can benefit from striped patterned window film.
Many entrance doors contain glass. Similar to overlooked windows, if people can see through your front door, then this is less than ideal. It?s possible to select our striped patterned window films to match your windows, allowing you to cover all of your window glass with the same look.
Or, if there?s just the odd pane of glass within your entrance doors that you?d like to make obscure, window film offers a quick and easy solution. As installing blinds on doors can also be a hassle as well as expensive, window film is far more convenient. Plus, renter friendly too.
Corporate Internal Glass
In any office or commercial building, there are lots of areas where glass may be found. If this glass does not provide any privacy, then you may wish to cover this glass with window film.
Some examples of internal window glass in a commercial building include windows, doors, partitions, facades, skylights, balustrades and even glass walls.
Although striped window film has a distinctive look, it is available in many styles. With patterned stripes especially, the looks can blend in well with professional settings.
Residential Internal Glass
A residential home may also contain lots of internal glass structures, similar to a commercial building. In addition, a home may have shower glass that could benefit from privacy, especially in larger bathroom suites.
Many striped patterned window films have a softer look, so that they give privacy but in a way that?s also visually subtle. Therefore, there are plenty of styles suited to home environments, without having to settle for a corporate look in your private living spaces.
How To Choose A Patterned Striped Window Film
If this is your first time purchasing a window film that combines both patterns and stripes? As with all window films, patterned striped window films offer ease and convenience when it comes to gaining window privacy. So that you can choose the right combination of stripes and patterns for your window glass, here are some of the top factors to consider.
Interior Or Exterior
Most striped patterned window films are geared towards interior use. However, on each product listing, you?ll also see whether or not the film can be used in exterior locations too.
Level Of Window Privacy (Low To High)
With the combination of stripes and patterns, you can experiment with the utmost level or privacy. Or benefit from a barely there subtle window film, which allows plenty of natural light into the room, but in a way which still offers some opaqueness.
For example, SX-C379 Crosshatch Etch gives a distressed look to window glass similar to a fabric pattern. So for those who feel their current window glass feels exposed or overlooked, this style is a great option to go for without having to fully obscure the window at the same time.
On the other end of the scale, SX-4510 Cool Grey Stripes combines the look of frosted glass with stripes. As each stripe is a wide band with only a small amount of spacing in between each stripe, it offers a high level of window privacy.
Stripes Vs Patterns
With the striped patterned privacy window film category, every style will offer a combination of both stripes and patterns. Some styles may offer an equal combination of both, whereas other styles may lean towards one rather than the other.
Consider the environment and the reason for wanting window privacy to help select the most suitable style. Plus, your own personal preferences with regards to how you want your windows to look.
UV Transmission Level
On each product listing, you will see a UV transmission level. This will be shown as a percentage to guide you, with the higher the percentage denoting a higher level of UV protection provided.
Window Film Size
Patterned privacy window films with stripes are available in a range of different sizes. Select a film size which will allow for a perfect fit once it is cut to size during the application process.
Benefits Of Patterned Privacy Window Films With Stripes
New to all things patterned privacy window films with stripes? Combining two stylish looks within one window film, patterned striped window films offer the best of both worlds in terms of privacy and style.
Here are some benefits specific to this category of window film to inspire your next project with us.
Create A Unique Look For Your Window Glass
It?s fair to say that all of our window films here at Glass Films will enhance the look of your windows. However, the ability to combine patterns and stripes takes this to the next level! All while ensuring a stylish finish that you can switch out whenever you wish in the future.
After all, gaining privacy doesn?t have to be boring. It can also be a great opportunity to customise the look of your home and commercial building. If you can?t decide on stripes versus patterns, this category is just the ticket.
Achieve The Look Of A Window Blind But With A Film!
One of the major benefits of striped window films in general, is that you?ll get the look of a window blind with zero installation required. That?s because the look is delivered via a window film which is easy to apply and remove.
With our SX-3006 White Frosted Mini Blind, this goes one step further, as the look actually mimics a closed window blind within a window film. All in a way which still lets some natural light through, for a truly intuitive solution.
The Chance To Explore More Subtle Designs
Stripes on their own add window privacy, and like we said above can beautifully mimic the look of window blinds. But not all stripes are created equal, and for some, the look can be too harsh or uniformed for what they have in mind.
So when a pattern is added to the stripes, often this can soften the look, creating a style that?s much better suited to residential or internal glass in particular.
Also, some styles in this range actually use lines more than solid stripes. This includes SX-C367 Fine Crossed Lines.
