Patterned Window Film
Patterned window film offers instant window privacy for your home or commercial building. Many different window film types exist. But with patterned window films, you can opt for a super customised look to the design of your window. That’s because special patterns are designed and applied to the surface of the film. The result allows you to factor in both your privacy requirements and your personal style with ease.
Here at Glass Films, our patterned privacy window films can be selected to suit your exact needs. This includes interior or exterior window films, the required level of privacy plus your overall design preferences. Easy to apply and remove, patterned privacy window films are cost-effective and convenient. Here is everything you need to know to help you make an informed purchase.
Window Film Patterned – Category Overview
Window films that have a pattern applied are just many of the ways you can customise the look of your home or commercial office space.
As the film adheres directly onto the window glass, window films are a convenient alternative to replacing the window itself. Crucially, privacy window films still allow natural light to pass through your window, meaning you don’t lose the benefit of having a window. Rather, you’re gaining the ability to control who can see through that window.
What Are Patterned Window Films?
A patterned window film has a design applied to the surface of the film, with the intention that the pattern will provide a superior level of privacy. At the same time, the pattern can be suited to the environment so that it adds personality along with practicality.

As patterns are intentional, the level of privacy they provide has been considered. This allows you the customer to opt for a heavier pattern or something a little more subtle. Either way, what will definitely be guaranteed is that your windows will no longer be a free-for-all whereby everyone can see through them!

Internal windows can be found in a variety of interior spaces such as showers, glass partitions, french doors, bi-fold doors, clerestory windows and skylights. There may be a need to create privacy either within the room itself (i.e. shower glass in a larger bathroom), or to prevent those outside from being able to see in. The ease and convenience of privacy window film makes securing your internal windows seamless.
Windows in commercial premises such as offices, restaurants, hotels, gyms or even co-working spaces may also benefit from patterned privacy window films. Patterned window films can create dedicated zones in the building, add interest to the space or simply enhance privacy wherever it is needed.

How To Choose A Patterned Privacy Window Film
Unlike choosing a new window type, blinds, curtains or any other window accessory – choosing a window film to enhance privacy is straightforward. After all, window films are easy to install and remove, and there’s none of the excessive cost or hassle either. That said, you do need to consider what properties would best suit the window environment along with your overall design preferences.
Interior Or Exterior
Patterned window films can be applied within a room, or be applied to the external layer of glass outside. The option you choose will need to consider what you’re trying to gain privacy from, so that the properties of the film will perfectly adapt to your surroundings.
Level Of Window Privacy (Low To High)
Everyone has a different requirement for privacy. How we categorise our window film privacy ratings are low, medium or high. As the name suggests, low privacy allows most of the vision into the room to be maintained, but with some reduction. On the other end of the scale, high privacy offers the maximum level of opaqueness.
Want something in between? Medium privacy window film offers the perfect balance.
Onto the fun part! The major attraction of patterned window films is the multitude of designs to choose from. Whether you had something traditional in mind, or even a super quirky style, patterns allow you to personalise the finished look to your windows.
UV Transmission Level
Did you know window film can reduce the UV transmission into the room? On each product listing, you will see a percentage of UV transmission that the particular product will provide.
Window Film Size
Our patterned window films are available in a range of sizes, from 24” wide to 60” wide. We recommend measuring your window before ordering, to ensure you have enough space for the film to be cut perfectly to shape.
Benefits Of Patterned Window Film
New to all things window films with patterns on them? There are so many ways that window films can benefit your building. So let’s look at some of these advantages which are specific to patterned window films.
Patterns Create Instant Window Privacy
When it’s privacy that you crave, sometimes ordinary window films might not do the trick. As patterns have more sophisticated shapes, it allows us (and you!) to get specific about the level of privacy you need. Say you don’t want people to see you while working in the office, or even while in the shower – there’s a pattern to block out practically everything.
In many instances, other types of window accessories or modifications aren’t suitable or practical. Patterned window films create the perfect solution here. They are useful in an endless amount of environments and scenarios.
No Need To Replace Window Glass
Traditionally, patterns on windows have always been achieved with the window glass itself having been manufactured with a pattern on it. But what if you don’t have the time, budget or even permission to change the windows in your building?
Patterned privacy window films can achieve the exact look you had in mind in a matter of seconds. Plus, if at a later date you decide you want to remove the pattern, or even try out a different pattern, the change is not permanent unlike actual patterned window glass.
In addition, the look you may want could also be temporary, meaning a full glass replacement would also be unsuitable. You may even be a landlord wanting to increase privacy for your tenants without having to carry out any major building renovations (i.e. replacing all of the windows). In any case, patterned privacy window films give you the best of both worlds!
Patterns Make A Style Statement
Patterned window films are usually applied to gain privacy. But there’s no reason you can opt for a design that’s in-keeping with your own personal style too.
When the patterns are viewed internally or externally, they can inject plenty of style into your home or commercial building. All without having to get out the paintbrush or undertake any extensive renovation work! We’d call that a win.
Multiple Sizes To Choose From
Windows come in all shapes and sizes, and the good news here is that window films do too. It’s also possible to trim window films so that they fit your window perfectly. This is also handy for custom shaped windows.

What Is Privacy Window Film?
A privacy window film is a piece of film that is applied to the surface of a window. The reason why privacy window films are used is to limit the ability for anyone on the other side of the glass to be able to see through the window.
How a patterned privacy window film works is that the properties of the film turn the window from transparent to opaque. The user can control the level of privacy required, to ensure enough light still enters the room, but not to the detriment of privacy for those within the room.
How To Cover Windows For Privacy
Adding a window film is one of the easiest, long-lasting and stylish ways to gain window privacy. To cover your windows, you simply need to select a window film that meets your design preferences, and is also the correct window size. Though, during installation, the film can also be cut to the shape of the glass to ensure a perfect fit by removing any excess film.
