Window treatments

Window treatments are especially helpful on patio and porch doors.

If you have windows that are unique in design, keeping the window treatment minimal will allow you to showcase the window itself. Window film is available in a variety of designs including film that looks like etched glass, film that has a stained glass appearance and film that features artistic designs. You can choose the privacy level and sun blocking level you desire. Window film is a unique way to make your windows more beautiful.
