Protect Your Privacy with the Right Window Coverings

Window Coverings for PrivacyThe first thing people usually think about when looking for new window treatments is style. You definitely need blinds, shades, or shutters that accentuate the interior design of your home. The second thing people consider is usually light control and the variety of ways you filter, diffuse, block and harness the sunlight. Thirdly, and equally important, is how window coverings provide privacy. Here at Window Products with showrooms in Southbury and Branford CT, patio homes and other new home developments have smaller properties where windows provide a direct view from one home to the next. Even larger home properties require privacy at the window. With today’s wide variety of window coverings, you can have privacy without completely blocking your source of natural light.

Blinds or Shades for Privacy?

Blinds have slats that can be tilted to varying degrees, and shades are made of solid fabric. Any of our many window blind styles, including wood blinds or faux wood blinds, will give you the ability to tilt the slats so that no one can see in, but you can still let some light into the room. Shades, on the other hand, are either up, down, or somewhere in between if you have the top down/bottom up style.

Custom Drapery

Custom designed drapery not only adds a personalized touch of style to your room, it can also provide privacy. Add drapery to existing blinds and shades for more privacy when you need it, or add drapery panels to your window coverings to block light and provide privacy at the sides of your windows. We offer a wide variety of fabrics, patterns and styles to help you create beautiful custom drapery.

Blackout Shades for Total Privacy

For absolute privacy and and room-darkening, choose blackout shades. Many of our window covering styles are available in blackout fabric. We also offer dual-shade options, where you can put a room-darkening roller shade toward the window and a sheer shade facing the room, each operating separately on the same cassette. With semi-opaque shades like a woven woods, add an optional privacy liner. Some shades like roman shades have inherent light gaps at the sides, so if that is a concern, you may want to have yours installed with an outside mount that completely covers your window opening.
