    Default Speaking of blinds: what for front door sidelights?

    I don't really want to hang a skinny minny blind there, but also don't want people who come to the house to see in the place.

    Suggestions?

    We used to have a net curtain that ran the length of the window - rod at the top and at the bottom. Still let in light but anyone coming to the door wouldn't have a clear view in.

    Oh, I was coming in to recommend these blinds from Home Depot that we got. We can't have the rods because of the kids and pets (they'd be knocked down all the time and we have full length side lights). THe blinds we got are encased and then the frame attaches right to the frame of the sidelight so it makes it like the patio doors where the blind is inside the window, iykwim. HOWEVER...that's not what you're looking for!! LOL

    For something non-mini blinds, I'd also go with the top & bottom rod with a sheer on it.

    You can also purchase a film that sticks onto your windows that makes it look like textured glass.

    Something like this.

    You can get it at Home Depot I think? Maybe? My friend just did it, I'll confirm on that tomorrow.

    Oh yes, This too! And yes, Home Depot has it - that's where we got ours (we didn't put it on the sidelight, so I forgot about it! LOL)

    Is the film removable or permanent?
