DIY Frosted Windows

Tricia, from the blog Making It Feel Like Home, used cool frosted contact paper on the small windows by her front door. Although the paper she selected adds privacy, you’ll score a two-fer by using insulating window film instead.

Tip: Some films reduce radiant heat transfer through glass by as much as 50%.

Depending upon the type of film you select and the amount of area covered, you can:

  • Help keep a room cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • Cut UV exposure, so furniture fabrics won’t fade.
  • Strengthen windows for added security.

Window film starts at around $1.50 per square foot.

See how Tricia created this project and where to download the stencil she used here.
