Home Organisation Tips For Busy Parents

When we started having kids, I realised it was much more difficult to keep our home organised with young children running around than it was when there were only two adults in the house. Our normal routines just didn't work well anymore, and the clutter and chaos seemed to be increasing by the day. We had to change how we organised our home by streamlining our belongings, altering our daily routine and developing new habits. In time we learned some quick and efficient ways to keep the key areas in our home clutter-free. I started this blog to share our experiences of transforming our home and pass on our tips for organising your home when you have young children to look after.

Privacy Screens to Beautify Your Yard

If you live in a cul de sac, you probably have come across nosy neighbours peering into your property or perhaps caught yourself looking into your neighbours' yards too! However, some homeowners may be averse to installing privacy screening as they assume the barrier will make their property seem small while also take away from the aesthetic of their yard. Luckily, privacy screens do not have to be an eyesore. Whether you have a patio, a verandah or are looking to enclose your entire garden, you are assured of finding a solution for your needs. Here are a few ideas that can help you get started with enhancing your privacy while also boosting the visual appeal of your property.

Glass privacy screens

These types of privacy screens are typically translucent. The glass is tempered at high temperatures to ensure that it can withstand high impact without the risk of shattering, so you do not have to worry about it being unsafe. There are different options that you could consider for glass privacy screens. If you would like some designs on your glass screen, you can opt for etched glass that comes in a vast assortment of designs. On the other hand, if you would like to ensure complete privacy without limiting the amount of sun that will stream to your living space, you can choose sandblasted glass that will create a luminous screen around your living space.

Slatted privacy screens

Homeowners who would prefer a solid enclosure but would like to ensure their space gets adequate ventilation should consider investing in slatted privacy screens. These screens typically comprise thin horizontal slats that have been made from wood. The space in between the slats is small enough to let a cool breeze into your alfresco space while blocking direct views into it. Slatted privacy screens are also an attractive solution since they blend easily with nature.

Lattice screens

If you prefer symmetrical patterns as part of the decorative element on your privacy screen, lattice screens would be your best bet. Although lattice screens are primarily made from timber, you can also opt to have yours manufactured using wrought iron. Lattice screens can be further embellished by growing climbing plants on them, which would also help in enhancing the privacy of your space. Wood lattice screens are also one of the more affordable options when compared to other privacy screens, making them ideal for individuals that are on a budget.
