Beside this, can I put plastic on the outside of my windows?
Using Plastic Window Film. Plastic window film can be an inexpensive alternative to double-glazing windows. The film, which looks similar to cling film, is applied on the inside of the window. Putting the film on the outside would only expose it to weathering elements, so by putting it inside, it's better protected.
Additionally, how do you cover windows without blinds? How to Give Windows Privacy Without Blinds
- Install curtains or draperies on the window.
- Plant a shrub outside a ground-level window.
- Place shutters on the inside or outside of the window to eliminate a view of the room.

Can you use plastic wrap to insulate windows?
Re: Using Plastic Wrap and Glue Sticks to insulate Windows Ours are very large and draughty windows so the plastic wrap method does not work for us. Thinner plastic sheet (less rigid than those we have just installed) bounce in and out as the drafts come in through the glass panes.
