Tips for Screening Out Nosy Neighbours without Becoming a Curtain Twitcher

Tips for Screening Out Nosy Neighbours without Becoming a Curtain Twitcher

It’s the curse of city living – if you live in a built-up area, then there’s a good chance that you are going to be overlooked by somebody. With net curtains still largely considered an interior design no-no, how do you retain your privacy but still allow in some natural light?

In this article, we look at ways to screen out nosy neighbours without turning into a vampire.

Let’s face it, net curtains are fussy and attract dust. Plus people can still see in if you have the lights switched on. So what are the alternatives?

? If you prefer the minimalist look, you might want to consider frosted window film. This opaque film comes in rolls – simply cut to size and stick it onto the windowpanes. The only down side is that you won’t have much of a view. If you have sash windows, however, it could get a bit fiddly.
? Alternatively, why not opt for blinds instead? Bottom-up blinds are one good option because they operate from the sill upwards, rather than the other way around. This means you can get maximum privacy whilst still allowing you to let in natural light via the gap at the top of the window.
? Looking for something with greater flexibility? How about day and night blinds? These consist of fabric blinds made from horizontal, alternating strips of transparent and dim-out fabric. Rather than slatted blinds, however, they don’t accumulate dust and still allow you to see out of the window. The beauty of them is that you get a lot more privacy without losing natural light. What’s not to like?
