I have been looking into different window films for my home.
My house has a ton of big, beautiful windows that face the road.
I like the look of it so much. It makes the place look airy, open and grand. However, the issue is that anyone driving down the road can look in and see. You can see me cooking in my kitchen, my husband watching TV in the living room and the kids playing in the house. I really 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 house is empty or filled. I found that a window film/tinting company can do a lot of things to conceal our home. There are sun control window films that protect the home against UV rays. Typically the film isn’t all that dark though. There are window films that look like frosted glass, rain drops or have a slight pattern. I really 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 certain 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 me in the end.
