    In my experience, the best kind to use is the static cling type that is applied with water only. Rabbitgoo is the brand I used and it works great. If you want to change it out, you peel it & the glass is clean.

    Hello there,

    I've used Clings and or Contact (Clear window designs) and it works well, Or you could sponge on Emulsion paint in swirls..........Hope that helps (I used that method to cut out glare from roof light.

    It comes down to the style that compliments your home and personal taste.

    Artscapes company makes many beautiful vinyl window designs. They make styles that look like rice paper, leaded glass, or opaque vines to name a few. There are other companies, this is meant as a starting point.

    There are wonderful spray paints that give an opaque look, add a mirror look or colored transparent glaze to the garage windows.

    Fabric curtains on small rods at the top and bottom can work too. It all depends on your style. Whatever you decide it will be nice and add the privacy you are hoping for.

    If it were me, I would add plastic faux stained glass plastic to cover them. It lets the light in, but you cannot see through it. I did it on our back door. Here is the tutorial:

  • Window films are available in all sorts of patterns and transparencies. They’re pretty easy to apply and will peel right off if you change your mind.

    Window films, or translucent Contact film with a pattern that obscures the view, installed on the inside of the windows. A pain to install, but it lasted for many years on basement windows, and was still in fine shape when I moved!
