Etched Glass vs. Window Film

We see the use of glass largely in commercial buildings, from conference rooms, partitions, and even stairwells. The use of glass allows natural light into your space while making the space feel larger. Glass is a perfect addition to any area, but bare glass is sometimes boring and doesn’t stand out. There are a couple of ways to transform your glass. You can use chemicals to etch the glass or you can apply a decorative window film. Lets compare these options.

Flexibility
Decorative window film can be changed as often as you like. If you decide you want a new look or if you change locations you can change your window film as well. The film I can be easily removed with no damage to the glass. Etched glass is permanent. Once the glass is etched, it cannot return to its original look.

Price
Window film is literally a fraction of the cost of etching glass. Etched glass involves a significant amount of labor and that is extremely costly. In addition, if you want to change the design you will have to pay additional fees. Decorative window film is much less labor intensive, therefore it is less cost effective.

Customization
When customizing etched glass, things can become extremely complex. If you do not have an existing pattern, you will need an artist who is experienced with etching techniques and has their own equipment for creating the etched glass. On the contrary, with window film your options are limitless. You can select the pattern, your color, texture, and design.

Installation
Etched glass installation is timely and disturbing. Having the glass installed can interrupt your daily operations, which is not good for business owners. Window film is done quickly and quietly. You are able to run your business while the film is being installed without any problem.

When choosing between etched glass and window film, the obvious choice is window film. Window film allows you to be as imaginative as like without having to break the bank.
