Providing privacy is a primary function of window coverings. Here at Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving West Palm Beach, many newer homes have smaller properties that may require special window treatments for privacy. With today’s wide variety of window treatments and installation options, you can have privacy without completely blocking your source of natural light. See some of our most popular options below.
Which is Best – Blinds or Shades for Privacy?
Shades are made of solid fabric, while blinds have slats that can be tilted to varying degrees. 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.
Top-Down-Bottom Up Shades
The option of opening shades from the top-down is a great way to maintain privacy while letting in some light. The top-down-bottom-up window treatment style allows you to open your shades from either the top or the bottom. Top-down-bottom-up shades are great for behind bathtubs and in bedrooms. Use this style with most any type of honeycomb shades, roman shades, pleated shades, and woven wood shades.
Custom Drapery for 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 Provide Complete Privacy and Room Darkening
Many of our window covering styles are available in blackout fabric for absolute privacy and and room-darkening. 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.
