- Choose film based on amount of light transmittance. Frosted and semi-transparent films will let in more light. Colored films and heavily embossed/patterned films will let in less light.
- Choose film based on visibility or privacy needs. Semi-transparent and lightly pattered films will allow for more visibility in and out of the window. Heavily frosted, colored or full patterned films will give more privacy.
- Choose film for design element. For example, cartoon patterns are an obvious choice for children rooms or day-care businesses. Most importantly, get creative with your design!
- Choose film based on its surroundings. A high amount of traffic by kids, pets, or people may result in unwanted damage to the film. Kids and pets can accidentally scratch the films, while vandals may chose to add graffiti to your film design.
- Choose film for plant life. If a plant needs high light intensity, it will be affected by a decrease in visible light. Chose the film accordingly. Plants that do not need high light intensity will not be affected.
- Order 10 % more film than you think you will need, both for length and width. This gives you wiggle room during installation and allows you to better position the design element of the film to your liking.
- Cheaper priced film does not mean cheaper quality film. It just means that less embossing materials or pigment have been used in the manufacturing process.
