Keeping Your Home As Private As Can Be

 Let’s face it: most people want to enjoy some degree of privacy in their own home - the last thing anyone wants is for random strangers to see what they’re doing at any given moment.

Sadly, some people’s homes don’t offer nearly enough privacy from the outside world.

You’re probably reading this today because you’ve got the same problem; you don’t feel like you’ve got much privacy where you live, but, you want to take some actionable steps to improve privacy in your home.

With that in mind, here’s a few idea's of what to do...

Have Window Blinds And Tints Installed...

As you can imagine, people outside your home can see indoors through your windows, especially if nothing obstructs their view - especially if it's dark outside and the light's are on inside (awful - I hate it!)

This is why it’s a good idea to have some window blinds and tints installed.

Window blinds do just as good a job as curtains but they don’t take up as much space, meaning you have more space available for decorating and arranging each room.

Also, privacy window films can block people’s view when you leave your blinds up during the day.

Another great thing about window tints is that they give your home a modern, contemporary look from the outside and can be essential if your home overlooks a busy main road.

Install Bathroom Shutters...

Many people feel particularly exposed to the outside world whenever they have a bath or shower.

While it’s true that most people’s bathroom windows get frosted to obscure their bodies from view, they’re not very effective - especially when the window is open for air.

It’s no secret that many people’s homes have bathrooms that face onto a main road - even if yours doesn’t, you still don’t want to have thoughts at the back of your mind of people potentially looking into your bathroom through the window.


That’s why it’s good to have some bathroom shutters installed. You can get them made to fit your windows, and they come in a wide range of colours and styles to suit your needs.

Above all, they do an excellent job at giving you privacy whenever you use your bathroom.

Put Up Some Fences...

One of the most common ways to add extra privacy to your home is with fence panels - they do a fab job in front and back gardens.

Fences give you a great deal of privacy from your neighbours, they’re relatively affordable to buy, and you can purchase them in various sizes, styles, and finishes.

You could even upgrade to brick or stone walls for a more premium feel.

Plant Some Trees...

Last but not least, you could have some trees planted around your home’s boundaries.

Trees are an attractive yet effective way to give you extra privacy, even if you’ve already gotten privacy measures like window tints, blinds, and shutters.

You can grow some trees from seed or have young, ready-grown trees planted outside your home from a landscaping firm or garden centre.

You may also wish to consider having hedges around public-facing areas of your home for additional privacy.

All in a bid to help keep you feeling happier and safer when at home...
