Update your home with ease, with film from The Window Film Company


This Make it Monday, we show you how updating your home with window film is a quick, easy, and affordable project to get stuck into this autumn. With a vast array of designs and styles, window film is a great way to update tired looking windows, helping transform the look of an entire room. Installation is a simple DIY project that anyone can undertake, and to ensure professional results every film delivery includes a detailed set of instructions, along with a handy plastic squeegee to aid installation. Here's how to add a suitably autumnal owl design - just look how easy it is!

 

You will need

Owl - White Printed Hibou, Window Film Company
Plant spray bottle with diluted washing-up liquid
Kitchen roll
Plastic card squeegee supplied with your order
Sharp craft knife

 

 

Directions

1 Card over the design using the squeegee supplied to increase the bond between the application tape and film.

2 Pull off the backing sheet whilst checking all the elements of the design come off the backing sheet and stay on the application tape.

Step 2

3 Spray the film so it is entirely covered with the soapy water.

4 Before beginning installation, ensure your glass is as clean as possible. Next spray the entire pane with the soapy water.

Step 4

5 Take the film to the window making sure you keep it taut, allow the film to flow onto the glass and slide into position.

6 Spray the back of the film before squeegeeing over it with the plastic card supplied.

Step 6

7 Work from the top pushing any bubbles out to the edges, whilst ensuring the film doesn't move, you can repeat this process again to ensure all water is removed. Then leave to dry for 24 hours.

8 Once dried for 24 hours, spray the application tape lightly and leave to soak for five minutes. Slowly peel off the application tape this will then reveal the design.


Step 8

9 Finally wipe off any remaining water from the film and the frame, being especially careful around the edges of any cut-outs to avoid lifting the film.
