4 Home Privacy Solutions You Need to Know About

Privacy is one of the best things about home ownership. Everyone wants to feel secure in their home, and a big part of that is feeling like there are barriers to the outside world that let you live your life without anyone peeking in. But as people continue to crowd into residential areas, privacy has become a precious commodity. However, privacy can be easily bought and installed. Here are four home privacy solutions you need to know about.

Window Treatment

Treat your windows to some window treatments. Simple blinds, shades, and curtains can keep prying eyes out while beautifying windows. But smart window treatments go a step further. There are many types of motorized window shades that grant privacy at the literal touch of a button. Some can even be scheduled to open or close at specific times a day. There’s also the option of smart glass that turns opaque or clear when needed. In addition to privacy, both the motorized shades and smart glass provide a more modern and contemporary style to a home.


While awnings and shades are excellent for providing privacy and protection from the sun and elements, they can be visually oppressive, dominating and overshadow a backyard’s look. Pergolas are a great solution. Pergolas and paneling can keep things snug and intimate on the porch or deck while their openness allows plenty of fresh air and just enough sunlight to spill in and keep things bright and airy. Pergolas can also host flowering vines to keep things looking even more natural and private.


Fences are fine, but natural fencing provided by hedges and other plants look lovelier while supplying privacy. City ordinances usually allow hedges to be taller than fences, so swiftly growing bushes can become walls between the backyard and other yards in no time. And while private hedges require periodic trimming, they won’t grow unsightly or need the repairs, paint, and other upkeep required by fences. Bamboo is another interesting way to “grow” privacy as one of the fastest growing plants available.


Keep your conversations private with soundproofing in and around the house. Acoustic panels inside the house will absorb noise indoors and keep loud outdoor noises outside. Additionally, caulking holes and cracks in the walls and around door and window frames will reduce noise and keep your home well insulated, saving on heating and air conditioning bills.

Those are just four home privacy solutions you need to know about. With them you can mind your own business and, better yet, keep others out of yours!
