When shopping for a new home, most of us like to see places with lots of big windows to let in the natural light and allow us to connect with the outdoors. One thing we forget: all that glass gives every passerby a wide-open view into your home– the one place where you expect privacy.

Common places for privacy film:

  • The windows near your front door give your home great curb appeal, but when someone comes knocking, stranger or no stranger, they can easily see who’s coming to the door.

  • A window in the bathroom might have seemed like a good idea at first, but in reality you’d rather not have to worry about people seeing you step out of your shower or bathe in your jetted tub!

  • If you have children or starting a family, privacy is a bigger priority in your house. Cover the glass in your children’s rooms because it will give you privacy and peace of mind.

  • The garage is a place where we keep a lot of our most expensive possessions. Yet, sometimes garages are built with windows, making it really easy for thieves to case your property. Covering those windows would be a no-brainer.If you’re realizing you might like to cover some of the glass in your home you definitely have options, and they don’t have to be blinds or curtains.
