How to Cover Glass Doors and Windows in a Manner That Enhances Security


Full exterior glass doors and windows offer a great chance to enhance the visual appeal of your home and a cost-effective way to gain natural light. However, the question of how to cover them for increased security, without compromising visual appeal, can be challenging to answer. Take a look at these different options to help you cover your windows in style.

Vertical Blinds

Blinds are the most common window treatments and offer great protection because they prevent home invaders from scouting your home for valued items. Home invaders want to peer through your glass doors and windows for potential valuables. You can use vertical blinds to add some decoration to your home, and because they are easily adjustable, they provide privacy and security whenever you need it.

Security Shutters

You can never go wrong with custom security shutters mounted on your glass doors or windows. Shutters offer a clean, tailored look that will blend in rather seamlessly with the rest of your décor. Security shutters allow you the flexibility of choosing between privacy and visibility. Shutters are also extremely stylish, and the best part is security shutters are built to last long.

Sliding Solar Shades

Other than protecting the inside of your home, sliding solar screens are perhaps one of the most inexpensive design options to compliment your home. Effective at blocking both prying eyes and the sun, solar screens add an incredibly stylish layer to your glass door.

Privacy Curtains

Dark curtains bring privacy to your home without taxing your budget. They offer the quickest and easiest choice for glass doors and add an important design element to your home. Heavier material curtains in dark colours will help block the outside view and are highly conducive to the safety aspect. What's more is that they are easy to install and you can choose from a variety of colours, patterns and prints to complement your décor.


Decorative screens offer a versatile and inexpensive way to add both privacy and an artistic element to your glass door. Laser cut screen panels provide the perfect solution for redefining your living spaces with endless creative possibilities.

Frosted Glass

Frosted glass is a tasteful way to provide more security and add a contemporary finish to your glass doors. A frosted window film offers less fussy security options than heavy curtains. You cannot see much through the textured finish because everything is distorted, which is a real security bonus.
