The Cure for a Bad View

The Cure for a Bad View

The paint? Perfect. The accessories? Impeccable. The view out the window? Cringe inducingly bad. But covering up the windows with curtains would be fussy. Window film peels. Here's another option:

Why not consider replacing the glass panes in your window with mirror? Especially in an older home, with multi-paned french windows, replacing the lower panes with mirror not only helps to block an ugly view but helps to bounce light around a small space. If you rent, consider having mirror cut to fit and "glue" it onto the window with museum putty. This is an especially good trick in a small bathroom or kitchen with a view out a back alley, ugly side street or directly across from a neighbor's curious eyes.
