How to cover a front door window?
I have a new fiberglass front door (still need to paint and install it) with an 18 x 23 window in it. I want a way to be able to see out the entire window but also cover it completely at night and also to cover only the bottom half if I don't want most people to see in during the day.
I thought about one of the cellular shades that go up from the bottom and down from the top. But I looked on a site that sells them and even a custom size can't be made in exactly the size I need. I'd have to get it an inch longer but I don't think that would be a big deal. BUT my main question is how do I install it? Can holes be drilled into the fiberglass? I've never had a fiberglass door before.
Or does anyone have a better idea? I considered a curtain of sorts that I could put on a small rod and put those hooks that are easily removed on the door and just move the curtain to suit my needs. But I'd have to have two sets of hooks -- one to cover the whole window and a second one for lowering it.
