More and more windows are being added to homes these days, giving them a modern, clean vibe that’s teeming with natural light. But some California homeowners are feeling like they live in a fishbowl with their lives on display rather than in a secluded refuge.
The good news is that the innovative window solutions available today give you both style and privacy.
Get the Best Privacy Options for Your Windows
Maintain the beauty of natural light in your home while ensuring your privacy from onlooking eyes. With decorative patterns and textures available for added aesthetics, you can achieve the attractiveness you desire along with the seclusion you need in your bathrooms, bedrooms, basement, and other areas of your home.
Here are some privacy ideas for your exterior windows.
Blinds between the Glass
Get the convenience of choosing privacy any time you desire it with blinds between the panes of insulated glass. Functional blinds protect your home from dust and damage. The glass is simple to clean because it covers the blinds. Control your home’s natural light and your privacy by raising, lowering, or tilting your blinds throughout the day. Cordless design gives you added safety for both your children and pets.
Add shades to your windows and patio doors to boost your privacy with style. Get the function you desire along with the natural light you crave indoors. Boost your home’s energy efficiency with low-maintenance shade solutions. Pleated shades are mounted to an extruded aluminum storm panel and applied to the interior of the window sash.
Curtains and blinds aren’t what most homeowners want in their bathroom. Privacy and obscure glass create a frosted or etched look that blocks or distorts the view from the outside in and from the inside out. The glass takes on a textured look which makes it more opaque and less clear.
Privacy glass is ideal for bathroom windows to allow you to enjoy refreshing natural light in your home while still maintaining your seclusion. It can be used on a portion of the panes so you get optimal natural light in your home while ensuring your solitude.
Andersen offers a variety of decorative patterned glass options: cascade, fern, obscure, reed, and satin etched.
Get the privacy you need with tinted glass in gray, bronze, or green on select Andersen Window products.
Boost your home’s value and give it a distinct charm with elegant art glass. It gives you both seclusion and view obstruction. Its ability to add a decorative accent to your home with its large-scale patterns and colors can offer a viable option to help you gain solitude in your home while still enjoying an abundance of natural light.
When you want a clear line of sight out but not one in, reflective glass preserves your views from inside your home while protecting its interior from being seen from the outdoors.
