Even if you are not dodging the paparazzi like Jennifer Aniston must, you would still like to sunbathe in your own back yard without the neighbors watching (or laughing). If you forget to draw the blinds in your bedroom, you would prefer that the teenagers next door not get a clear view of your untucked tummy. Fortunately, you can add a few affordable touches to your home and yard that will help keep your private life private.

An Outdoor Room

You can create a cozy outdoor room by erecting a trellis or two and adding some strategically placed plants. Place the trellis between you and the too-close neighbor. Hang plants, decorative items, and even gardening tools from the trellis. If you wish, you can place garden boxes at the foot of the trellis and have vines grow to provide you with summer privacy. Add a few pieces of outdoor furniture, and you have a nifty little hideaway in your own backyard where you can relax away from prying eyes.

Indoor Protection

Closing the blinds is a great way to stay private, but if you want to enjoy the view without worrying about giving the neighbors a show, consider having your windows tinted. You can actually have your bedroom windows tinted so that you can see outside but no one can see in. After you have this process done at your home, you will never again have to worry about showing your bad side to the neighborhood. You will be free to dance or swing from the chandelier naked if you wish. No one else needs to know. 

Tinted windows also have other benefits, such as blocking harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture from fading, and making your glass less likely to shatter. In addition, you will save money on your utility bills since the tinting cuts down on heat absorption in the summer and heat loss in the winter. Tinted windows can also be decorative, so you add beauty to your home while saving money. For more information about window tinting, visit Newco Solar Solutions window film.

You should have shelter from the neighbors no matter where you are in your home. Investing a little time and money in your indoor and outdoor spaces will help you achieve the level of privacy you crave. You will not have to worry about what the neighbors think of your new tattoo, and your neighbors will not be subjected to things they may not wish to see. Keeping things more private will make the entire neighborhood a happier place.
