I have a normal sort of window treatment in the room so you wouldn't really notice anything strange, especially at night when you would not expect any light anyway, unless you pulled the curtain back to look outside.
I actually made a provision for that, with a small piece that can be opened to take a peek, like if you hear someone outside trying to get your attention.

Well my wife likes others not being able to see in and likes the noise to be nil aside from the fan.

The funny thing is that she is a sound sleeper and I am a light sleeper so it really should not bother her. I cannot count the times I have moved about the house, come home early, or taken care of our son and she never knew about it. I have told her someone could run into the house and she would never know about it until the police woke her thinking she was dead (aside from the snoring, but do not tell anyone).

She only sleeps nights and of course the weekend afternoon nap. I am sure if I could get it looking good and it was easily removable (in case we sell the house at a later date [yeah I am on ATS and I am talking about the future in a far better light lol]) I think she would want this sort of thing.

The way I did it, it is easily removable.
On the inside, there were already holes for these things that held the screen on which are on the far outer edge. I just found or bought long screws with the same thread.
On the outside, I use normal ceder shims for setting door jams. I stuck the frame in place and knocked in the shims, you snap them off then you get them in enough. I added some caulking but it's stuff you can just peal off.
This is on a cement block house and what you live in may be a different construction where you would have to come up with a different strategy.
Just look for existing attachment places, that way you don't damage the house.
In Florida, people don't worry about it and put big inserts into their walls for hurricane protection.

Yeah definitely a different structure.

I will have to do some work to see what I can come up with. Seeing though that it is not a must at the moment it will just be placed on my list of things I want to do within the next year.

I think something like this might be good for my sons room.
