Decorative Window Film

When you’re looking for a unique way to add some incredible color to a room, our decorative window film featuring our holographic diffraction pattern is the perfect solution. When placed in a room that gets direct sunlight, the interplay between the light and pattern will cast a dazzling array of rainbows across any space. The shapes and colors will change along with the movement of the sun throughout the day––which means there’s never have a dull moment when after you install our rainbow window films.

Below, we’ve outlined an easy process for how to apply our decorative window film to your room of choice. Read on and let us know if you have any questions!


What You’ll Need

So, how do you apply our decorative window film? For starters, you’ll need a couple of simple household items, including:

  • Paper towels
  • A spray bottle containing a solution of tap water and a drop of dish soap
  • A squeegee
  • A pair of scissors (optional)
  • Your Rainbow Symphony decorative window film

Step 1:

Choose a window that receives direct sunlight; the effect of the film will not be as spectacular if the window is shielded from the sun. If necessary, use a pair of standard household scissors to cut the film to fit your window of choice.

Step 2:

Wet the window with the soapy water mixture. Clean the window with the paper towels to remove any spots or smudges. Then, wet the window with the soapy water mixture again.

Step 3:

This step is optional, but totally recommended! If you have a desired shape and size, use the scissors to carefully cut the film while the liner is still on the sheet to whatever shape you’d like.

Step 4:

Partially peel the backing off of your decorative window film and place it on the desired section of the window.

Step 5:

Once you have the first section of the film where you want it, use your squeegee to seal the film to the window pane. Work from top to bottom, applying medium pressure to remove any air bubbles.

Step 6:

After you’ve applied the entire piece of film, squeegee the entire surface again in all directions to remove any remaining air bubbles and enhance the seal. Push the air bubbles towards the closest edge; the shorter the distance they need to travel, the better!

Step 7:

Wipe away any excess water––and you’re done! Now you can step back and enjoy the dazzling rainbow display.
