7 Privacy Ideas for Your Home

Practical residential solutions to boost your privacy

You deserve to experience privacy within your property. After all, your home is your family’s refuge away from bustling streets, possibly nosy neighbours, and all the buzz from the world outside. 

Unfortunately, not all properties are made with privacy in mind. There are houses with open lawns that are available for everyone to see. Some families even have shared yards with their neighbours because there are no defined property lines. If you want to relax in your yard in quiet on a cool morning, there is no telling when distractions and other people may burst your private bubble.

The good news is there are numerous ways to tighten the privacy within the property you hold. Improving the privacy in your home can be done in many ways. Read along to know some of the top privacy ideas for your property.

7 effective ways to ensure privacy at home

There are so many ways to ensure privacy in your own home. No matter where you live, you can achieve a sense of solitude through these additions:

  • Fencing
  • Hedges
  • Layered privacy plantings
  • Fountains
  • Curtain screens
  • Fence vines
  • Gazebos.

1. Fencing

Gone are the days when you have to be conscious of others even when trying to spend private time in your yard. All you need to do is find the right type of fencing and install it properly. If you have no prior experience in doing so, approaching professionals is recommended. Here are some of the most common types of fencing you can look into when finding the best fence for your home:

Basic Chainwire Fencing

With this type of chainwire fencing, there will be a clearer indication that the property is private and strangers should keep out. This cost-effective fencing solution can be used for private properties, companies, and even industrial plants.

Basic chainwire fencing comes in all shapes and sizes. If you want to make sure that the privacy of your home is assured, this low-cost fence is a good option. Just make sure that your local council does not have its own height limit for fencing. Otherwise, you may need to adhere to the max height your basic chainwire fencing can have.

Black Chainwire Fencing

If your main priority is to keep strangers away and make property lines clear, the black chainwire fencing from Chainwire Fencing Specialist might be good for you. It sets a clear boundary and warns that the property within is private property. With a thinly constricted mesh wire, this type of fence looks clean and good as well. In addition, this low-cost fencing option lasts for a long period.

Press Formed Spear Top Fence

Also called the Brentwood style fencing, this is fast-becoming one of the most popular types of fences for private properties. Not only does this fencing looks sleek and clean, but it also makes it harder for intruders to come in.

Using this type of fencing hugely decreases break-ins and vandalism and can be manufactured to meet your height requirements. If you are interested in other fencing options, you can also approach your local fencing supplier and installer.


2. Hedges

Hedges are also effective means of keeping your private property secure from the outside world. So, not only does this look attractive, but this is also a fresh way to establish privacy within your neighbourhood.

Hedges are pricier than your common fence and are harder to maintain, but if you have the means to maintain a wedge wall for your property, why not try it and see if you like it?

Layered privacy plantings

3. Layered privacy plantings

You can plant a mix of shrubs, evergreen or deciduous trees, and perennials to create a nature-centred look for your property if you have a larger yard. This set-up is not something that will completely keep intruders away. However, plants layered together make it harder for people to peer into your yard to see what you are doing. On top of that, layered plantings look lovely and increase the curb value of your home.


4. Fountains

If you want to completely shut out the environment outside your home, you can install fountains in your yard to mask outside noise. Together with your fence, hedges, or layered plantings, you can keep the outside world out with the white noise fountains provide. Keep the fountains close to your yard lounge area to make the white noise clearer and louder.

Curtain screens

5. Curtain screens

Do you ever get conscious that your next-door neighbour can see what you are doing in your yard from the top floor balconies of their house? If this is a problem you encounter frequently, you can have a small area in your yard to install curtains that will serve as privacy screens for your property.

Fence vines

6. Fence vines

To make your fences look more attractive, you can also attach trellis and vines. Many fencing types keep strangers out of the property, but some of them cannot limit what others can see in your yard. Vines and trellis installations can block the view of the people from outside.


7.     Gazebos

With gazebos, you can have added privacy without needing to build a huge structure along your property lines. Gazebos not only add a sense of privacy to a home, but also block sunlight or rain. They make cute entertaining spaces and leave your garden open to so many decorating options, you’ll have a ball decking it out.
