Decorative film on windows anyone?

Having decided after posting on here not to put plantation shutters in my 1930s bay windows (too expensive as we are not planning to stay in this house long term) I'm considering window film just in the bottom sections of the panes in the bay windows. Anyone done this before? Hints/tips/advice gratefully received!

Why not regular wooden blinds?

Only places I've seen the film, other than bathrooms, are student digs and offices. Though I did see a nice one recently - looked like window was etched with branches and birds. Wouldn't want it at home, personally, but was nice alternative to the plain frosting.

Wooden blinds are a possibility. But I quite like how bright windows can look with the film while still giving you privacy. And like you say, there are some lovely designs.

Lidl is getting some film in on Monday 7th of various designs. 2m x 40 cm. .less than a fiver.
It's good stuff, easy to apply, doesn't reduce the light, just blurs what can be seen.

Thanks for the tip re Lidl!
I love that pattern on your door Titsy - is it easy to stick up yourself without making a pig's ear of ??

Yes easy you just need a spray bottle of water and ideally 2 people. Took a couple of minutes.
