Master the wrong basement window quickly and cheaply
If you are looking for a rented apartment, the lower floor apartments are usually cheaper, which of course is a cause for joy. Behind the low rental price, however, hide a number of disadvantages and inconveniences, which are crucial to consider when choosing the apartment.
If you rent a basement apartment, you should expect a cold floor, noise from cars and passers-by, mildew and last but not least light.
Create the illusion for a real basement window
This was the reality until recently. In the world of social media, the clever idea of an American couple has been spinning for some days now, which seems to have solved the problem of daylight in a very original, simple and favorable way.
Venetian blinds provide magical lighting effects
Do you also know this problem or would you just like to install an additional basement window? With the following example you will get a permanent, satisfactory and above all favorable solution for your basement apartment or your basement. The total cost of the “fake window” is around 150 € and if you hang a curtain in front of the window, no one will be able to see that the fabric does not allow any real daylight to get through.
It can lead to real confusions
Drive quickly to the hardware store and get 2 x 4 acrylic sheets in the desired size, 2 LED tube lights (depending on your needs), glue and cornstarch.
With simple means, you can bring the wrong window to completion
The cornstarch is spread over the acrylic sheet and glued to reflect and scatter the direct light from the LED tube lamps. The effect is all the more credible if you provide the window with curtains in light shade or cheerful design. In some of the examples, we see that a shutter on the new window looks just as good as the curtain. So, then, look for something that suits your taste, which serves as a “privacy screen”.
For the purpose you need acrylic sheets
Before-after – hard to believe
