Reclaim Your Home Privacy With These Redesigns

9:00:00 AM

Hello darlings!

When you buy a home, you’re probably hoping that it will give you quite a lot of privacy. It’s one of the key benefits of living in a house rather than an apartment. But that’s not always the case. Your home could be overlooked by a next door neighbor, or it might be situated on a busy road. You might also find that people just aren’t respecting what is your private property. It would be great if you could get your privacy back. Well, there are a few ways to do this that might prove useful if you constantly feel as though you’re not getting privacy in your own home. Let’s look at a few of the possibilities.

Screener Trees
Exactly as they sound, screener trees are used to screen an area or environment such as the back yard. If your home is overlooked, you might want to make sure that people can’t peer over the fence when you’re sunbathing or see when you have guests over. Screener trees can help, and they can be purchased online.

The advantage of screener trees is that they are typically evergreen. This means that throughout the entire year, they never lose their leaves and as such, they’ll always provide you with the privacy you need. They grow quite tall too, ensuring that you do have a complete screen around your home and they grow fast. So, if you plant them now, you might find that they are sprouting up by the end of the year.
Tinted Windows

If your home is next to a busy road or street, you might find that people are constantly turning their head and looking directly into your home. This can be quite disconcerting and rather annoying if you want some privacy at the end of the day. But you don’t want to have to close your curtains or blinds. You probably like getting the natural light inside your home, particularly through the summer season.

The answer to this issue is tinted windows. With window tinting Perth Now's residential tinting and similar services can ensure that no one can see into your home at all. In fact, you can go as far to say that this is the ultimate form of privacy. You’ll still be able to look out, you’ll still get the light from the window, but no one will be able to look in. This can be a smart feature to have for security reasons too. Most break-ins are triggered because criminals see something valuable inside the home after peering through the window. With tinted windows, they won’t be able to do this.
Fencing
Or finally, perhaps your main issue is that people just aren’t respecting your private property. This happens all too often, and the simple solution is to put up fencing. It’s easy to buy fencing online that can be easily installed around your property. That way, you can let people know that it is your property, not theirs. It’s particularly useful if you own a large section of green on an open road. You’ll be able to keep muddy footprints off it and ensure that your property remains part of your home.

  5. I guess this is vital for very populated areas. Personally I am much of an open space, large windows and no curtains person. Will definitely share this with my "city" friends. =)

  6. My house is on a hilly street and it feels like everyone can see everything we do. We have a fence but it only shields us from the house to the left. I'll have to look into screener trees and see if that helps!

  9. I live in a nature rich area so trees are our cover. I like the idea of tinted windows which is more commonly seen in condo/coop homes than single family homes in my area. Fences can be very pretty too.

  10. We live on the corner lot, so we've got a lot of foot traffic. More trees or at least tall bushes would help cut down on the privacy issues we have.
