Introverted Inspirations: 4 Tips for Boosting the Privacy of Your Property

No matter how you choose to enjoy your garden, you have a right to expect a certain degree of privacy. At ‘All Weather Blinds,’ we assist homeowners who want to create a greater sense of intimacy both in and around their properties. When you live close to a busy road, nosey neighbours, or a noisy part of town, there are times when you just need to keep the world out.

So, we’ve put together this guide to improving the security of your property. Keep reading for some tips, tricks, and clever ideas.

Add Sturdy Outdoor Blinds

One of the best ways to keep what you do in your garden private is to invest in a set of high-quality outdoor blinds. Our beautiful café zipper and café crank blinds are designed to enclose a pergola, veranda, deck, patio, or other exterior space.

They provide full ventilation and air circulation and allow plenty of light to get inside, but the tinted PVC makes looking in from outside very difficult. Click here for more information on our range of café crank blinds. Don’t forget to check out the pictures in our gallery too.

Consider Metal Shutters

While the prospect of placing metal shutters over the windows won’t appeal to everybody, they can be an enormous asset for those living in big cities. If your home is in an insecure area or there is a lot of crime in the neighbourhood, adjustable security shutters are a safe solution.

The thing to understand about these products is that they don’t look like you’d expect.

For instance, aluminium shutters are sleek and sophisticated. They come in a range of different colours, so they don’t even have to look like a security feature.

Install Latticework Fences

If you’re looking for a softer option, or want to combine security features with landscaping elements, you could install latticework fencing. It is popular with family homes, because it encloses the garden (and keeps kids and pets safe), without blocking out the daylight.

They are available in a huge variety of designs. There are very simple, traditional styles which criss-cross in a trellis pattern. However, there are also wonderfully intricate designs which you can leave bare or use to grow winding creeper plants.

Plant Tall, Rustling Grasses

Privacy isn’t all about what other people can see.

Sometimes, it’s just as important to block out the world and its hustle and noise. Tall, rustling grass varieties are a great way to do this because they create a soft, gentle sound when they meet the wind.

Rustling grasses are easy to grow, thrive in most soil conditions, and they act as a kind of natural white noise. It means that you’ll hear fewer sounds from outside just by planting them in your yard. If you add some fragrant herbs, you’ll have an outdoor space which smells, sounds and looks divine.   

Why Privacy Is Essential for Your Property

Everybody wants to feel safe in their home and privacy is a big part of that.

Your house should feel like your little kingdom; a place where you can rest and relax without worrying about the world outside. Whether that means investing in security shutters, installing outdoor blinds, or creating a natural screen out of shrubs and trees, the important thing is that you feel comfortable spending time in your family castle.

What our customers say

Highly recommend All Weather Blinds! Very competitive prices, so easy to communicate with from the office staff who follows through with enquiries to installers. My install was over a year ago and had a power outage. The blind would only stop 3/4 of the way down. They talked me through how to fix it over the phone, were so patient and in a few minutes it was fixed. Thanks for looking after your customers.
