How to Select Privacy Window Vinyl for Your Work Space

Many companies today are turning to open floor plans, often using glass windows or doors to partition conference rooms and upper management offices. With so much glass, privacy is a must. Here are some things to consider when selecting the best privacy window vinyl for your work space.

Window films are a great option for decoration, privacy or both. The amount of privacy you need will determine the opacity and placement of the vinyl.

We’re happy to help our customers select the window vinyl that will work best for their project. Here are just a few questions we typically ask during a consultation:

  1. Would you like the vinyl to cover the entire window or just a portion?
  2. How much light do you want to enter the room? Is privacy more important?
  3. Do you want to include your company logo, branding or other decorative elements? Should these elements be cut out of the vinyl or printed on the surface?
  4. Would you like the vinyl to be smooth or textured?
  5. Do you want it to contain a pattern?
  6. What’s your budget? (We offer a wide variety of options at different price points and can help you find the look you want for the right price.)

Once these questions are answered, it’s time to look at options. We offer a wide selection of privacy vinyl that can create any mood you wish to convey. To give you an idea of how window films can change the mood (and level of privacy) in your office space, let’s take a look at these great examples:

Less Private

Window vinyl for Reliant Bank in Chattanooga, TN by 12-Point SignWorks.

This striped window vinyl looks elegant in a bank setting!

The striped decorative window vinyl in the photos above was installed for Reliant Bank in Chattanooga, TN. As you can see, this vinyl provides partial coverage only on the bottom portion of the windows. This is a beautiful look; however, visitors will be able to see people working on the other side of the glass.

Almost (But Not Completely) Private

Branded privacy window vinyl for Franklin Synergy Bank by 12-Point SignWorks in Franklin, TN.

Branded privacy vinyl is not only functional but decorative.

If your employees need more privacy, we offer beautiful frosted vinyl (in various levels of opacity) that can partially or completely cover glass surfaces. The frosted vinyl shown in the photo above provides almost complete privacy for offices at Franklin Synergy Bank. To reinforce the bank’s brand, the bank’s pineapple logo was also cut out of the vinyl.


Semi Private Window Vinyl by 12-Point SignWorks in Franklin, TN.

We can cut almost any shape out of window vinyl. Just imagine the possibilities!

Semi-private frosted vinyl is a great choice if you enjoy a more decorative look. The words in the photo above were cut out of etched vinyl. Notice how the words set the tone before visitors and employees even enter the conference room. You would have to look really hard to see what’s happening behind this glass!

Privacy Vinyl for Gresham Smith in Nashville, TN by 12-Point SignWorks.

Some clients prefer only a band of frosted vinyl installed on the middle portion of the glass.

This photo shows another example of semi-private frosted vinyl. This door vinyl was installed for Gresham Smith in Nashville, TN. The partially covered door allows light to enter the room, but provides at least partial privacy at eye-level as people pass by.
