With just a little do-it-yourself willpower, you can give your windows a new look by installing privacy film. There are a bunch of options out there for homeowners that prefer the simple, frosted look to those who opt for total blackout film on their windows. We found four window films that should meet any need.
Coavas Frosted Film
A frosted look is great for windows in the office, bathroom, or any room where privacy is a concern but a softer design is still preferred. This film requires no adhesives, is easy to apply, and can be just as easily peeled away without any residue. Better yet – it can be removed and used again.
During the day, your window will look like a one-way mirror; at night the mirror effect fades so remember to use your curtains if you still want privacy. The film is easy to install with just a soap-and-water mixture. It also offers UV protection and should lower cooling bills considerably.
Rabbitgoo 3D Decorative Window Film
If you’re looking for a decorative window treatment other than blinds or drapes, this could be a great choice. The no-adhesive film is a snap to install but delivers a colorful visual effect upon completion. It’s only semi-private, so don’t use it for the bathroom.
VELIMAX Blackout Window Film
Sometimes, nothing short of a total blackout will do. This window film was created with that goal in mind. It’s static-cling film, so no glue is required. It’s intended for glass that is flat and promises the deliver total privacy and coolness.
