How Can I Give the Bedroom More Privacy?

How Can I Give the Bedroom More Privacy?

Q - This is my "work-in-progress," 322-sq. foot studio mainly used as a "bunker" for city life, and is occasionally shared with a boyfriend who sleeps over sometimes. The sliding glass dividers are a new addition, and are completely modular (they can closed, completely opened, and can be moved to whichever side)...

I use them to close off the bedroom when I cook one-pot meals in the compact kitchen (partially shown in photo). I chose completely clear glass, as I did not want to make the already small space look even smaller. Also, I did not want to obstruct the natural light from the one and only window.

My question is: How can I give the bedroom more privacy? Curtains are the obvious choice, but are there other lower-maintenance options? Are there non-permanent frosted glass stickers that I can easily put up when guests suddenly come over, and remove after they have left?

Editor - Ingrid, sounds like you might want something like this static cling window film. We have something similar in our kitchen and it has worked out great at providing privacy where we once had a face to face windows situation with our neighbor. Here are some additional window privacy solutions that might help your situation:
