I received an email from a Cindy asking about privacy window films and whether they can increase her peace of mind. Her home had recently been burglarized and she attributes the robbery to the fact that her front door is a glass panel with sidelight, allowed anyone to see into her home. The robber was easily able to see whether someone was home as well as some of the valuables that were in the home.
My answer to her was that yes indeed, window films can add privacy to any smooth glass surface. Keeping prying eyes from seeing whether your home is occupied as well as hiding your valuable property from would-be thieves. Most window films are applied to the inside of the glass so they can be used even on a door that is already etched. A simple frost or light frost film would be an understated way to add privacy or colored privacy window tints could be used to add both privacy and a decorative touch.
