Making a hot room cool

This may seem like a really odd post
but I want to share because the results are fantastic!!!

Little Red's bedroom gets the sun all afternoon and evening.
In the summer it gets super hot and can be 5 degrees hotter than the rest of the house.

We purchased an air conditioning unit
but if we use it I worry about the cost.

Then we found a fantastic cheap alternative!!


We purchased ours off Ebay from a shop called:

You can see out perfectly and anyone looking in
can hardly see anything.
The film is just attached by water and it stays in place.
It's a really easy job to do and Little Red now has a lovely
cool bedroom.
We couldn't believe the difference!!!!!!

Here are the details from Ebay:
