If you are looking into options for providing you with more privacy and you are thinking about better window coverings, one idea you could consider is applying frosted privacy window film to your windows. It's cheap, easy to apply yourself and it really can cut back on how much passersby can see into your home.
The most common film used for this is frosted window film. Frosted window film comes in a variety of designs, and varying degrees of opaqueness. A good white frosted film can allow up to 70 percent of light to come into a room, while still blocking almost all of the view into the room. This makes it ideal to use on doors such as glass front doors where you want to be able to see out but not have any visitors standing outside your door immediately able to see into your home. It is also perfect for adding privacy to bathroom shower stalls or bathroom doors.
Plain frosted film lets even more light into a room, up to 90 percent, however it doesn't block people from seeing into your home as much as the more opaque white frosted film. Still, it is very good for windows, for example, where you can even just put a strip across the bottom half or third of the window.
Frosted film is not only used to provide more privacy for your home, but it is also perfect for decorating and sprucing up a room. It can be applied as a design on windows or on mirrors. It can outline the edge of a window or mirror, or you can even cut out designs and place them on your glass doors, windows and mirrors. There really is a lot of use for frosted film, besides it being used only as privacy window film.
Of course, the main reason people buy privacy window film is to provide a more secure and private environment. Even if that is your reason for buying and applying privacy film, you can also apply it in such a way that it adds to your overall décor and furnishings.
