Privacy – it’s the essential ingredient to make a space truly your own. This is especially true when living on a busy street. Without the proper measures in place, anybody could walk past your window and peek inside. And let’s face it, you don’t need that when you’re doing some yoga or dancing like nobody’s watching.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to create this quick guide – really quick, we promise – to help you improve home privacy without breaking the bank. Our secret weapon? We’ll give you a hint. Actually, we’ll let you figure it out. Now where were we? Oh yes, front-of-house privacy ideas. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Our Top Tips to Improve Home Privacy

Passersby are likely to see into your home on occasion. That’s just a given. But there are a few things you can do that will boost privacy and add to overall curb appeal:

  • Landscaping: Carefully positioned trees and shrubs near your windows will create a natural privacy screen. Plus, they look pretty too!

  • Fences and trellises: A nice fence or trellis can create an intimate outdoor area and improve your privacy all in one go.

  • Frosted window films: While they aren’t our favorite solution, frosted window films blur the view from outside but still let the sunshine in.

Hopefully, we’ve been helpful so far. If, however, you really want to up your privacy game, there’s only one winner.

Shutters: Picture Perfect Privacy

We didn’t start selling shutters on a whim, you know? We did it because they’re hands down our favorite window dressing. They’re stylish (of course), timeless (as you know), and they’re perfect for temperature regulation (fancy that!). And on top of all this, they’re clearly the MVPs of home privacy.

Shutters are fitted to the exact specifications of your windows, meaning they offer comprehensive coverage of your windows, leaving no room for prying eyes. Plus, their moveable slats mean you can adjust them just as you like, helping you improve home privacy while still letting light into the home.

And if that’s still not enough privacy for you, there’s always our solid shutters. Comprised of solid panels, they don’t have any movable slats. Even from an inch away, good luck seeing through that.

More Than a Window Dressing

Shutters come in various styles and finishes too. Whether you’re after waterproof faux wood or wood shutters, we’ll find the right shutters to suit your home – and your budget. Want to buy domestically? Sure thing. You’ll find several ranges that are made right here in America.
