Window films come in a variety of styles and boast a variety of functions. If you are thinking about home window tinting in your child's room, there are three main options to consider. Here's a look at the choices.

1. Decorative Films

Decorative films are a great way to personalise your kids' windows. You can buy films in all kinds of shapes. Attach a film shaped like a small branch with some birds on it to create the feeling of nature in your kid's room, find films of their favourite cartoon characters, or explore film with dolphins or little fish on it.

For more comprehensive coverage and to add a bit of privacy, you may want a film that covers the whole window. Even in a child's room, you can go for a classic look such as a stained glass window or a mosaic pattern. Alternatively, you can add a film that covers the whole window and mimics the effect of frosted glass.

2. Privacy Film

If you want to take privacy a notch further, consider investing in privacy film. This type of window film is designed and expressly for privacy. It's generally a dark grey or black and is not decorative. If your child's room is on the ground floor and you don't want any potential threats being able to see into the room, you may want to consider privacy film.

Depending on your objectives, you may be able to mix and match privacy film and decorative films. For instance, you could put privacy film on the lower half of the window and put small decorative films on the top half of the window.

3. Tinted Films

In some cases, you may want to consider tinted films. Tinted window films for your home feature a special material that blocks UV rays. That can be essential if you want to protect your child from the sun's damaging rays, which are linked to skin cancer and other issues. In addition, the film also protects the furniture in that room from sun damage.

You don't have to worry about cutting out the light altogether—a lot of tinted films block out the UV rays without dampening the rest of the sunlight. In some cases, you can even add tinted film and then put decorative film on top of it. That creates functional and aesthetic appeal.
