I substituted our family room recently, however i changed the windows from tiny, fogged up painted a singles to giant double hung windows.
I also got a large french door put in so I can access our room from the backyard.
I love having the added light in our family room in addition to how pretty the glass looks, however, the issue is that I am very much on display. Adding curtains to the front windows wasn’t a problem at all, and the french door was another issue. I didn’t want any of our 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 upgrade. I looked at the tints in addition to for our french doors, I thought that would look odd. I also certainly liked the clear glass look. I then searched residential window film services in addition to found all sorts of options. I could get a decorative window film that looks love frosted glass, running water, flowers or even geometric shapes. I did a lot of shopping around in addition to looked at images in other peoples homes. I went with a easy frosted glass look. I still get the sunlight in addition to the clear look that I was going for, now I think totally safe in addition to secure. I am not on display in addition to I am not inviting robbers to take a peek in our family room to see our laptop, furniture in addition to our wardrobe. The window film upgrade didn’t cost that much in addition to it was installed fairly suddenly too. It was currency well spent.
