FAITES VOTRE CHOIX :
3 good reasons
- you like your privacy, or the view out your window is less than perfect, but you don't want to use thick curtains that block out light
- you feel that a window is like a wall: a great open space aching for decoration
- you like easy do-it-yourself projects that you can try out without the risk of making a fatal error. The static cling method means that you can try and try again until you get perfect results!
how does it work?
before buying: choose your motif and your size
LEAVES & SPARROW motif
You will need:
- a very clean sponge or spray bottle
- a squeegee (you can use your hand, but it won't work as well)
- a pair of scissors and a utility knife
- a ruler
- don't wear rings during installation
- if possible, get someone to help you
- room temperature should be over 10°C (we should hope!)
To easily install your static cling window screen film on a window or any other glass surface, you should be sure to:
- carefully clean your window
- measure the window and if necessary, cut any excess film, making sure to include a margin of several centimeters (which will be cut away once the film is placed on the window, so that the film perfectly fits your window frame)
- Apply some barely soapy water (1 drop of colorless dish washing liquid, for example) on your window, either with a very clean sponge or with a spray bottle
- Peel the protective film off the window screen that you wish to install
- Place the window screen film on the window, positioning it as best you can; you can slide it around to the right position if your first try doesn't work
- Lightly wet the outer side of the screen (the side facing you) to make it easier to slide the squeegee over it and to avoid scratches
- Using your hand or your squeegee, holding the film with one hand, squeeze out any air bubbles and/or drops of water. As any upholster knows, you should always start from the centre and move towards the edges for the best results.
- Use the utility knife and the ruler to cut off any excess film: you are done!
The huge advantage of a static cling window screen as opposed to the popular stick-on window screen is that the former does not use adhesive. Since there's no adhesive, if your first attempt at positioning the film misses the mark, you can always try again.
Designers Sofia Löfstedt and Johanna Lindgren Örn were in the same class at the Konstfack Design School in Stockholm. Their first decorative window screen film was designed in 2003 for a class project. Since 2004, when they received their diplomas, they exclusively design window screen films!
