What To Do with a Really Bad Window View

Ever have a window that looks straight out into the sprawling vista of your neighbor’s fence? Not that removing the fence would reveal any greater view, but what do you do with an essentially non-functional window?

You've got a couple of choices and they're predicated on one, elemental reality…light.

If you have light coming through a window that does not offer up a wondrous panorama, you can do something with the light to make the entire experience pleasing. You can insert a stained-glass-window. When working with stained glass, there are a few different options. Let's explore them.

If you live in a fairly well populated area, chances are that you can find someone that is willing to teach you stained glass making.

With contemporary stained glass, if you want something unique and you don't feel like sacrificing either time or one of your digits, you can commission someone to craft something for you.

There are other alternatives to stained glass for that window as well.

You can get wallpaper for windows. These are essentially stained glass without the glass and they're called Decorative Window Film . You can roll them on and they have the appearance of of glass and other textures or designs. They're almost like large decals and believe it or not, some of the design...
