How To Make Your Windows More Private

Windows allow fresh air and light into your home. If you are lucky, windows may even give you a pleasant view to look out on. But how do you keep others from looking in? If you want to avert the prying eyes of neighbours, passer-by’s or even burglars, read how with our top Somerset windows and doors advice:

Georgian Windows

Georgian windows are an elegant style choice. Classically, these windows have a ‘six over six’ pattern, where six panes slide over each over. Georgian windows in Somerset look fantastic with rustic-style shutters for a traditional aesthetic and additional privacy.


A good set of curtains can be the quickest and easiest way to restrict the view inside of your home. There are so many options available. You can select a heavy fabric to obstruct the view, but this may also block out the sunlight. A thin or transparent curtain will allow more light to shine through but will not give you 100% privacy.


Blinds can be an excellent privacy solution. Open them to let in the sunshine and close them when you want your concealment. Choose from a wide selection of materials, including plastic, wood or vinyl. If you are worried about small children or pets getting tangled, blinds can even be placed between window panes and operated through an external switch.

Obscure or decorative glass

Decorative glass adds a personal and creative touch to your front door in Somerset. Opt for a colour or pattern to match the theme of your home’s exteriors. Not only will your glass look stunning, it will restrict the view through your front door.

For windows, particularly bathroom windows, obscure glass is an excellent option. Obscure glass lets ample sunlight into your interiors but effectively conceals what’s happening on the other side of the wall. Learn more about our window glass options in Somerset with Notaro Windows.
