So, you’re considering window film for your Long Island home? That’s wonderful! Window tinting is a great investment that can benefit your home not only now, but years into the future. But you still have one small concern – is it going to make your windows dark?
Like most homeowners, you probably appreciate the natural light that your windows provide. It’s much easier on the eyes than artificial light, more effective at illuminating the whole room instead of one spot, and looks stunning. Losing that natural light would be a deal-breaker for you. And trust us, we get it!
But fear not, window film won’t make your home dark inside. You’ll still get to experience all the natural light you love, plus some pretty great benefits!
Are All Window Films Tinted?
Contrary to popular belief, not all window films produced today are tinted. Long gone are the days when manufacturers relied on dark dyes to control heat. Now, metal, ceramic, and other more effective and better quality materials are used instead. So, no, not all window films are tinted. And they won’t make your home dark… unless you want them to, of course! (There are blackout films for that!) Even window films that have some tint (neutral films) won’t darken your interior.
Alternatives to Neutral Colored Window Film
Some homeowners don’t like the idea of any tint at all on their windows. This is usually not because they’re worried about losing sunlight, but they simply don’t like the way it looks. And that’s okay! Everyone has their preferences!
As an alternative, you can install clear window film for your Long Island home. There are clear energy efficient and security window tinting options that are not tinted at all. Or, if your goal is to create privacy, consider a frosted or textured film instead. There are tons of different styles out there, so you’re bound to find an option that meets your needs.
