Finding the Right Privacy Level for You

Look and beauty are important features of your window fashions, but as you begin to think about updating remember that privacy is important. Consider your privacy and security concerns as you are making decisions about your next window treatment. Also, consider whether you want full or partial view to the outside. Not all window treatments offer the same level of privacy or options, so you need to understand the differences.

Shades, Blinds, and Shutters all offer privacy and security options.

Shades. Shades are considered “lifters”. They either raise or lower to provide full view-through to the outside or privacy. Shades come in the largest color palette available in all of the window treatment categories and in the full range of opacities, from light-filtering to blackout. With many features to choose from, they are perfect for homes that want blackout shades in the bedrooms, semi-opaque shades in the front room, and semi-sheer or sheer shades to filter light for back of the house. The Hunter Douglas Shade collection includes the Honeycomb or Cellular Shades, Roman Shades, Woven Wood Shades, and Roller or Screen Shades.

Blinds. Blinds are considered “tilters”. They can be lifted, but for the most part, just the slats are tilted open or closed. This feature provides the right amount of light and privacy desired. Blinds add a level of interest at the window and come in aluminum, wood, and vinyl, as well as a variety of paint stains and slat sizes. The Hunter Douglas Blind collection includes Wood, Faux Wood, and Poly Blinds, as well as Aluminum Blinds.

Shutters. Shutters are unique, but are also considered “tilters”. The louvers can be tilted open or closed and the panels can be swung open for full view-through. Mostly, shutters are considered fine furniture for your windows and add value to your home. Shutters are available in wood, faux wood and vinyl materials and a variety of paints, stains, and louver sizes.

Your Optimal Level of Privacy

When reviewing your window treatment options, you need to decide your level of privacy. Is privacy not and issue? Or do you want absolute privacy? Start by asking yourself the following four questions:

  1. What room or rooms are you planning to hang your window treatments?
  2. Where do you live?
  3. Why are you covering your windows?
  4. What do you want your room to look like when the window treatments are closed?

Once you understand the type of privacy you prefer you can move forward with a more informed plan. We have some window treatment suggestions based on the common privacy levels preferred by our customers.

Not Worried about Privacy? Anything Goes!

This preference 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 absorb sound from the busy street outside. If this sounds like you, also think about how much view you want and if you are interested in lifting or tilting from your window treatments. Honeycomb and screen shades are always great options because of the variety of opacity features available. Wood blinds are another good choice because you can control the light by tilting the vanes and they also add riches to the window.

Somewhat Worried about Privacy?

Depending where you live and what direction the windows face, 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. Wood blinds or screen shades may be a great option for the back of the house where view is more important but you also want to control the amount of light coming in.

Complete Privacy

If you want total privacy, there is no better window treatment on the market today than honeycomb blackout shades. They truly block out 100% of the sun (although if you want no light gap on the sides, remember to mount them on the outside or add drapery panels on each side). Also 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.
