Covering glass on front door.

I have a wooden front door with glass in the middle where you can see inside the home. What can i use to tint/cover the glass where I can see out and hard for others to see in?

Second that. Our front entry has sidelites about 6" wide plus over the door is a semi-circle window. I put some of that decorator film on several years ago and it looks really nice, especially at night from outside. The bog box stores carry it, but usually in limited patterns.

It doesn't exactly fit your requirements because with a lot of the patterns you can see out, but not clearly. For that you would probably need a mirrored window-tint film.

Mango Man- thanks for the link, I might looking into some of those. But I think with my door there are alot of separations and it will be a big pita to put the picture together.

the_tow_guy - I was actually thinking about the privacy mirror tint for the door. I looked at lowes and they have it but not sure how much of a pita it will be to cut all the little pieces and stick them to the glass. The glass is not smooth through out.

we have a similar situation , we have a 15 panel "french door" as a front door all clear glass (not my choice but wifey loves it and thats all that matters )

on the outside we have a screen door whatever material the screen is it effectively blocks site looking in , even at night with the lights on you have to be on the porch , right next to the door to see in

daytime you have to stand right at the screen and even then its hard

we can see out fine

depending on your set up something like that could be the answer

Hi: Why not put up a curtain or even a venetian blind the size of the window? I've used both for my front door. Can let the light in during the day and close at night.
