It’s probably a fair thing to assume that most of us would choose the real thing over a cheaper alternative in all areas of our life when possible. But unfortunately this is not always possible, because at least with some products, the prices are not within our budget. But this doesn’t mean that we should give up on some great decor ideas just because we can’t afford the original. So then we use “faux” this and “faux” that instead.

When it comes to windows, there are some options to get what you want at a lower price.

Let’s say you need a little privacy, but replacing your normal window panes with sanded panes might be more costly. What are your options to get what you need? Window films that can be plain or decorative.

Stained glass is also expensive, but you can DIY for less.

If you would like to go for a wrought iron piece, you probably know just how costly they are. The good news is that you can get the same look with faux wrought iron.

You can get a faux mirror effect by applying mirror spray or even gluing mirror tiles on the window pane.
