Solve Privacy Issues With Window Film

With summer in full swing, you might want to maintain some window shades available to make the most of the cheerful light and long times. But if you would like to also preserve a sense of solitude, consider window movies — the version of storm windows of summer, in a manner. But instead of stopping air leaks, window movies stop passersby from peeking in.

Light-filtering movies allow those in homes, condos or apartments with tight quarters to depart the curtains drawn. From the apartment complex that I’m in, as an example, I can see to three apartments across the quad, so a few further separation would be nice!

Letting in more lighting also reduces the demand for electric lighting, conserving energy. And movies with fun geometric patterns have a layout benefit, also.
