Determining Your Privacy Needs

With window treatments, look and beauty is important, but make sure your selection will be able to meet your level of privacy and security concerns. Not all window treatments offer the same level of privacy or options, so you need to understand the differences and the level that’s right for you. To help you determine what you need, consider the following:

  • Does the window face a street or an open space?
  • Is the window in a bathroom or bedroom, or is it in a rarely used room?
  • Do you live in the suburbs, in a high-rise community, or in a secluded area?
  • Do you want to block light, filter light, or both?

Products to Meet Your Needs

Once you’ve determined the level of privacy your window needs, consider the following types of products to meet those needs:

  • Privacy Is Not an Issue. This opens your selection to what appeals to your eye and décor. Maybe you are looking to add a little color or interest to the room, filter out harmful UV rays, or more. Honeycomb and screen shades might work great because of their variety of opacity options.
  • Semi-Privacy. Depending where you live and what direction the window faces, semi-opaque honeycomb shades or woven woods may just be what you are looking for. They help maintain light levels while ensuring that people can’t see in, such as at the front of a house.
  • Complete Privacy. If you want total privacy, there is no better window treatment on the market today than honeycomb blackout shades, which block out 100% of the sun. Woven woods or Roman shades with a fabric liner would be another good option. If you want to tilt open, consider wood blinds with de-Light™ feature, which eliminates the rout holes, or custom shutters.
