I have been looking into odd window films for my home… My beach house has a ton of big, lovely windows that face the road.
I love the look of it so much.
It makes the venue look airy, open and grand. However, the issue is that anyone driving down the road can look in and see, but you can see myself and others cooking in my living room, my husband seeing cable in the dining room and the youngsters playing in the house. I entirely don’t want people seeing us during those moments. I also don’t want to encourage robbers to come break into our house. The windows leave no doubt that the beach house is empty or filled. I found that a window film/tinting supplier can do a lot of things to conceal our home. There are sun control window films that protect the beach house against UV rays. Typically the film isn’t all that dark though. There are window films that look love frosted glass, rain drops or have a slight pattern. I entirely want to be able to see out of all my windows though. That is why I am leaning more towards a tint. You can make the windows a particular color from the outside but be able to see them while you are inside. I am looking at a slightly grey/black tint to conceal my family from people driving by and robbers. Surprisingly the cost is quite low and the reward is quite high. It is worth it to myself and others in the end.
