GLass and vinYL GraPhics PRESERVING THE LIGHT AND YOUR PRIVACY BY MARGARET ANNE FEHR

L

etting in the light while still preserving privacy is the challenge for homeowners who have an abundance of windows and glass entry doors so favored by today’s leading designers and architects. Covering up these fine architectural features with blinds and curtains seems to run contrary to the entire concept of allowing in natural light that is so desirable within a home’s interior. Fortunately, since 1990, MPD Glass

and Vinyl Graphics located at 857 Marion Street, has been providing decorative glass films and sandblasting options that resolve the natural light/privacy issue while also adding distinctive aesthetic flourishes to both the exterior and interior of the home. The company slogan “everything from simple glass cutting, to breathtaking works of art” indicates the scope and skill that MPD provides to it clients. Decorative glass film is a strong favorite for on-site projects, says Philippe Robin, co-owner of MPD. “There’s very little set-up and very little mess. Also, it can be done very quickly. A simple door would take about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes for the application.” Phil adds that decorative glass film should not be confused with the craft store variety. “It’s a commercially made product that is designed for glass application. Most of the products that we use are well-known manufacturers’ brand names like Avery, Tape-Tech and 3M.” APR - May 2011 | home décor and renovations | 49
