It will take about 15 minutes to trim the design, and another 10 or 15 minutes to install.

Privacy Options

Full coverage

Add beauty and privacy with Glass Block etched glass.

If you are looking for complete privacy and an elegant look, there are several designs that will provide full coverage while adding beauty to your home. Perhaps you have a bathroom window that you feel reveals too much?

Try one of the many patterns designed to promote privacy while also adding beauty to your home. These will cover your windows completely but will still allow light to filter through. You can trim the design to fit the size of your window if needed.

Allow about 15 minutes for trimming, and another 15 minutes for installation.

Half coverage

Adding beauty and privacy with Everleaf etched glass half window screen.

If you are looking to add some privacy but also see out, a half window screen might do the trick. For this treatment, apply the decorative panel to the bottom half of the window only. A half screen on a window of normal height will usually screen those in the room from the shoulders down.

The designs are easily trimmed to fit the bottom half of your window. This should take about 15 minutes. Installation will take another 10 or 15 minutes.

Expect trimming to take about 15 minutes per window, while installation will take another 10 or 15 minutes.
