lifestyle: Simple Ways To Create Privacy On Your Property This Year

 In this modern day that we live in, it’s only right that we want a bit of privacy when it comes to our homes.

With that being said, there are some simple ways to improve the privacy of your home this year. Whether you’ve already got some of these in place already or not, hopefully, these tips will provide a bit more privacy to your property in 2023.

Add fencing to your garden

Fencing is a great way to add some privacy to your garden, especially if you’ve got nosy neighbours who have a clear view of the exterior. If any windows face out to the garden, you might have a few unwanted stares from neighbours who are close by too.

With that being said, a close board panel is an effective way of adding a barrier between you and your neighbours’ properties, as well as adding that much-needed privacy.

There are a variety of styles and heights available, so it’s worth shopping around to find the best option for your own property.

Use frosted window film

If you have certain windows that aren’t always covered with blinds or curtains, then frosted window film is a good alternative. Perhaps you don’t have any blinds or curtains on specific windows but they are currently exposed to the outside world.

Frosted window film is a cheap and effective way of keeping your interiors private, without needing to go to the extent of buying blinds or curtains. You can choose to frost over your entire window with this film, or partly cover it.

Install CCTV to detract people from snooping

CCTV has been and will always be a useful deterrent for those who are looking to detract people from snooping or stepping onto the property.

While it doesn’t make your property impenetrable, it does make it a deterrent that most will likely avoid when scoping out properties to rob from. A lot of properties nowadays make use of the Nest cameras, which are great for privacy on your front doorstep, however, you might want to install some at a higher position. 

Be strategic with plants and shrubs

To help maximise your privacy, be strategic when it comes to plants and shrubs. Opt for higher shrubs and even trees to help block any viewpoint to your property. Of course, it’s important to be aware of what you might block for your neighbours, so always be mindful of this.

Invest in a partially enclosed pergola

Finally, a great feature to add to your garden space and an ideal alternative for privacy is a partially enclosed pergola. It makes for a great outdoor dining or lounging space and can help block certain windows from view.
