Reclaim Your Home Privacy

Are you struggling with low levels of privacy in your home? Perhaps you constantly feel as though people are looking into your windows or peaking into your garden? If that’s the case, then you need to explore some key steps to boost the privacy of your property. Here are the ideas we recommend. 


First, you might want to consider adding fencing to your property. Alternatively, you could replace a short fence with a taller one. Contrary to belief, fencing doesn’t need to spoil the aesthetic of your property. If you use a local fence company, you can add a great fence to your home that looks beautiful and provides practical benefits. You just need to make sure that it is installed correctly. The last thing you want is for it to blow down or need repairing after a spot of bad weather. 

Screener Trees

Another option would be adding screener trees to your home. As the name suggests, screener trees provide a screen around your home that people won’t be able to peer through. These are thick trees with long branches and crucially, they grow quickly. They’re also often evergreen which means that you won’t lose your privacy at certain points throughout the year. If you are interested in adding trees like this to your home, then we suggest that you speak to a professional landscaper. They need to be planted correctly to ensure that they grow right. 

Privacy Windows 

Privacy windows, or one way glass as you may have heard it called, helps to reclaim some of the privacy that you have lost in the past. Do you have people looking through your windows every now and then, leaving you feeling uncomfortable? If this is the case, then you can have smart windows installed into your home so that you can see out of them, but people cannot see inside. Even when you see people looking in the direction of your home, you will know that you can do whatever you want and nobody will know.


The final thing that we’re going to recommend is that you get CCTV installed around your home. This will act as a deterrent for people trying to nose around your home, as it’s not worth the hassle of being caught on camera. People are less likely to come near your home in the first place if they know that you have CCTV and are recording every move that they make.

This deterrent will mean that you will be able to reclaim some of your privacy. Of course, it’s not going to stop everyone, especially the ones who don’t notice! But, it will be far better for you.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you can do to reclaim your home privacy.

When you live somewhere, you don’t want your nosey neighbors constantly all up in your business because privacy is important. We are all entitled to this, and now you know how you can reclaim some of yours! We wish you the very best of luck, and hope that these ideas help.
