You don’t need to replace your windows in order to improve your home’s privacy. There are many window treatments to consider that will not only add privacy, but can also enhance your home’s kerb appeal.
Curtains are one of the most popular ways to add privacy and decoration to your home. They come in a wide variety of fabrics and colours and the ‘eyelet’ style is particularly simple to install. Sheer curtains are another great option, because they add a layer of privacy, whilst still allowing light Ito pass into the room. Heavier curtains can provide complete privacy and they can also block out the light if required.
Shutters are a simple and stylish way of increasing the privacy in your home. They are available in a wide range of materials and colours to match your interior and they are easy to install. Shutters allow you to control the light with simple adjustments and they provide a sleek and modern appearance both inside and out.
Frosted glass is a great option for privacy because it allows you to maximise on natural light, whilst preventing your neighbours from looking in. Glass can be frosted in many different ways, from acid etching to adding an adhesive film. The adhesive film is a popular choice because it is inexpensive and non-permanent. There are many designs and patterns to choose from and the moisture resistant frosted films are great for bathrooms. You can also choose to add frosting to only the bottom half of the window if you wish to maintain the view.
Stained glass windows are a beautiful addition to any home and they are ideal for improving privacy. Small pieces of coloured glass are held together by strips of metal and the design can be made to your exact requirements. Stained glass brings a radiant finish to any room and can also help to increase your home’s kerb appeal.
