The fablon stick-on stuff is really good as long as you can get a piece big enough for your window as the rolls aren't very wide.



I used some of that on a landing window which was too high to reach normally so I couldn't have curtains. It was good stuff. Comes in all sorts of patterns and I used a stained glass effect and although it looked like a church from outside it was a lovely effect inside


It is quite pricey if you have a large area to cover though.

I've used fablon in the window at the top of the stairs, works a treat and has no loss of light. Wilkinsons sell it at 5.00 for a roll and its 67cm wide and I think 1.5m long

No...a window can't play organ music...silly.

I used to play a keyboard at the time though and couldn't understand why I kept getting visits from Jehovah's Witnesses

You can get it wider than that I have seen it one and a half metres wide

We have these fitted to our UPVC windows, works a treat.
These got them from a local blind supply shop. They came measured up, then came back and fitted.

Highly recommend Brume window film. http://www.brume.co.uk/c/1/made-to-measure-window-film We got it made to measure for just on the lower sash window of a new upstairs bathroom, as no-one could look through the top pane but we needed a bit of "modesty" from the street below. We chose one with wee squares cut out but you can get other cut-out patterns. These shapes let the light in, but you can't see in as they're too small. You can get funky cut-outs that spell out a word or the house number - you name it. (We got a huge number for the glass over the front door too.) Easy to apply - you use fairy liquid, put the film up and wiggle it into place, and use a credit card to smooth out the bubbles. After that, you just wash it a bit more gently than you would wash glass.

Thanks a lot, I have got a white blind from Wilkinson, non black out and fairly thin which is just right. Nice to have all these options though in case I change my mind :)

Fiona W, I've just visited the Brume website. Wow! So much choice. Not sure I'd want a lobster in my window though! Something for everyone, certainly. My daughter is considering window treatments, so I'll definitely pass it on to her. Thanks for posting it.

Cheapest way is to stand at your windows with pair of binoculars, staring into your neighbour's house.

They then erect a privacy barrier for you.

We have plantation shutters on the windows and balcony doors. Work very well.
