As the festive season draws to a close, you’re probably feeling the aftereffects of a jam-packed social calendar and two weeks of overindulgence.
New Year’s Eve in particular is synonymous with big parties and even bigger hangovers. While listening to the sheepish complaints and grumbles of our friends and family who woke up on New Year’s Day with a pounding headache, we came up with five ways that frosted glass windows can help you through your New Year’s Day hangover.
Frosted glass windows are opaque; providing you with privacy by shielding you from the curious eyes of the outside world. Don’t want your neighbours to see the mountain of empty beer bottles and leftover party snacks left littering your kitchen table? Frosted glass windows ensure that you can clean up in privacy.
You aren’t the only one who stumbles out of bed after a particularly festive night squinting and grimacing at the cheerful rays of sunlight streaming through your windows. Frosted glass windows cut out glare and shield you from direct sunlight – something your light-sensitive eyes will be very thankful for.
Everyone has that one accident-prone friend who’s bound to cannon straight into a glass door or window, shattering it and sending shards of glass flying in every direction. Sharp, glass splinters are dangerous and difficult to clean up – the last thing you need on New Year’s Day is a gash in your foot.
Windows dressed with frosted window vinyl, however, are shatterproof. In the event of an accident, the window film holds the little pieces of glass together instead of letting them scatter all over the place.
Have you ever noticed that there seems to be some kind of magnetic attraction between red wine and white fabric? This mysterious law dictates that if you’ve got white or pale-coloured curtains, someone at your New Year’s Eve party is bound to spill Shiraz all over them.
Cleaning curtains is a big job. Cleaning curtains streaked with red wine is an even bigger job. You’ve got to climb up on a chair (not the easiest thing to do when you’re feeling a little wobbly), unhook them and then wash them as best as you can. If you manage to get the stain out, the thick fabric takes ages to dry. Then you’ve got to clamber back up on the chair and painstakingly hook them back up.
Frosted glass windows – especially those dressed with window vinyl – are a breeze to clean. All it takes is a squirt of ordinary window cleaner and a quick wipe down and hey presto; they’re as good as new.
While frosted glass windows block out severe glare, frosted window vinyl still lets in 93% of natural light; a known mood enhancer. You’ll need all the help you can get in this department as you’ll be feeling sorry for yourself and probably a little grumpy. Some gentle, soothing sunshine – along with a greasy breakfast and a tall glass of orange juice – will have you feeling back to normal in no time at all.
