Beautiful glass french doors separate two rooms in our Victorian apartment. I love the light, but I don't like the lack of privacy. A simple solution for my fellow renters out there? Window films. They can be funky, refined, and downright gorgeous. But the most important part is that they provide privacy and light without being permanent and expensive. Learn more after the jump!
A window film is that frosty layer over glass windows that lets light in without letting everyone else's eyes in too. It is a great solution for glass in bathrooms and other areas that are exposed to lots of light. Design-wise they have come a long way. You can get funky patterns, colorful tiles, and all sorts of nature-inspired themes now. They can cost as little as $10 per sheet and are relatively easy to apply.
I sure could have used these when my apartment faced an office building. My first day there I neglected to buy curtains, and the next morning I regretted it as I stretched and yawned in front of a business audience of 12 across the courtyard. No harm done, other than my slight embarrassment, but these handy window upgrades could have saved me a lot of trouble looking for odd-shaped blinds.
