Privacy Film for A Front Door [Video]


The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. Glass on a front door can be a double-edged sword. It gives visual interest and diffuses light, but it also lets people see inside. Good news. You don’t have to change your front door for more privacy. There’s an easy solution.

Privacy film is like a removable wallpaper for your window. It comes in many different patterns and styles. Some are more transparent to allow light through like a frosted glass. Others are completely patterned and opaque. Do some shopping around and find a style you like best.

Applying the film is easy. First, it’s important to thoroughly clean the glass and frame around it. Use your favorite glass cleaner. Go over it several times to make sure the dust and dirt is gone. Dry completely before continuing.

Measure your window. Cut the film two inches larger than your measured space. It’s important to leave extra to make sure the glass is completely covered. Apply the film. Use a credit card or squeegee to smooth out wrinkles. Trim the edges with a utility knife and you’re done. That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday.

I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. To learn more check out the Country Door blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God bless.

Hi Robin, Love your suggestions for doors. I have a question about removing film from windows and on front doors. Do you have any good suggestions on doing this. I’ve tried scraping but only small amount was removed. Thanks for showing us how to beautify our doors!!!

Hi Jeannie, thanks so much for your comment. Could you please describe the film that you have on your windows and doors in a bit more detail? If it’s easier, please email us your pictures at
