Cheap Window Privacy Films

    Looking for privacy window panels, window covers, window films, etc. Ikea used to sell frosted window film (Amorf Frost) for about $7 a roll but they no longer carry it in Canada unfortunately.

    It does not need to be frosted, just a pattern that will obscure what's inside the house.

    The ones at Home Depot are good but quite expensive for doing multiple windows. Anyone know an affordable place to buy these things? Thanks!

    These were the most affordable options I found:
    Daiso - $2 multiple patterns

    Walmart - $9.98 multiple patterns and designs. The window films are from a company called Brewster Home Fashions.

    Downside is that this window cover only offers privacy during the day and not at night.

    Contact Paper and Laminate
    A cheap alternative to window film is using clear contact paper or laminate. Results are good but slightly more troublesome to remove.
