I replaced my living room recently, then i changed the windows from tiny, fogged up painted a singles to giant double hung windows.
I also got a sizable french door put in so I can access my room from the backyard.
I appreciate having the added light in my living room plus how pretty the glass looks… However, the issue is that I am easily much on display, however adding curtains to the front windows wasn’t a problem at all. The french door was another issue. I didn’t want any of my neighbors seeing me change when they walk their pets or go out to their porches for coffee. I then found online that a lot of people do a window tint or decorative film installation. I looked at the tints plus for my french doors, I thought that would look odd. I also absolutely liked the clear glass look. I then searched residential window film services plus found all sorts of options. I could get a decorative window film that looks like frosted glass, running water, flowers or even geometric shapes. I did a lot of shopping around plus looked at images in other peoples homes. I went with a simple frosted glass look. I still get the sunshine plus the clear look that I was going for, however now I guess totally safe plus secure. I am not on display plus I am not inviting robbers to take a peek in my living room to see my laptop, furniture plus my wardrobe. The window film installation didn’t cost that much plus it was installed fairly suddenly too. It was money well spent.
