Prying Eyes Stay Out, Light Comes In

Creepy neighbors looking into your windows from their windows? It’s a problem faced mainly by city dwellers, though anyone with a home that’s close to the next house over may find themselves facing privacy issues when it comes to bathroom and bedroom windows. The first solution that comes to mind is probably a curtain or blinds, but how about adhesive window film? Possibly associated with grandma’s house and restaurant bathrooms – at least in my mind – adhesive window film is nonetheless extremely useful when it comes to maintaining one’s privacy without also blocking out the sun.

And when it’s Emma Jeffs window film you’re using, you can choose between a whole bunch of really cool, pretty patterns that very specifically don’t look like the window film at grandma’s. I’m talking about everything from traditional geometric patterns to florals to unexpected stuff like rocket ships and fish.

This is just a sample - there are tons more patterns in the line

Perfect forthe potty, of course.

But also lovely in the kitchen and anywhere else privacy is required.

Each 37″ x 52″ roll of Emma Jeffs adhesive window film costs about $80 (a little steep, sure) and can be found at DesignPublic.com and 2Jane.com.

    No thanks! I don’t like it. Just no. Get nice curtains or something else, sheer ones, whatever. This is way too grannyish, always will be.

    I think I’m too old for this to be a good idea. I can’t do the stick-on thing- I refuse to decorate my space (again) with stickers. I know it’s not really that, but it *feels* like that.

    It’s funny, because sheer curtains seem grannyish to me. Here where I live it gets VERY hot, so we’re used to putting films on the windows to block the heat (it’s very effective, too), and I could easily see putting films on the windows for privacy, too. Best yet would be a window film that could do both.

    Thanks for that input, ZaftigWendy – I had no idea that the clingy stuff has heat blocking properties! I’m going to pass that on to my mom, who has property in Costa Rica where it just doesn’t pay to have the AC going all the time.
