The landscape of our neighborhood has boomed over the winter and spring months. It hardly looks like the neighborhood we moved into last August, but we are very excited to see all the new faces and houses. We recently gained two brand new neighbors within a weeks time as they simultaneously built two new houses right next to us. You can imagine our anticipation wondering what model house it was going to be and if the new house would cause any privacy issues for our already cozy quarters. Unfortunately the new house has a second story window that looks right down into our first floor powder room. Quite uncomfortable in the privacy sector!! So for the past couple months I have avoided our powder room at all costs, which is quite silly as I should feel comfortable in my own home. Those of you with the Ravenna model know that little window in the powder room wouldn't exactly be the type of window to sport a shade, or shutters, or curtains for that matter...its really meant to be a pretty little window to let in some light. So I was left wondering, how do I get some privacy without disturbing the design and light the window provides. AH HA.....we installed some privacy film!! I love that I can still enjoy the little window but it makes me feel confidently comfortable that no one can see in to our powder room. It was roughly about $20 from a big box store, and took literally a couple minutes to install. Plus it doesn't have the gooey sticky like surface so if we decide to do something different we won't spend hours trying to peel and de-goo the window. It has been the perfect solution to our privacy dilemma! Below are some pictures (sorry they are not very good) but I tried to capture the blur of the outside so you can see how it looks from the inside and the privacy it provides.
