Window Coverings for Privacy
Choosing the right window coverings based on your style is important, but it’s important to also consider your privacy needs. But here at Select Blinds, you can have both style and privacy. Just look at all your options:
Wood and faux wood blinds normally have little route holes for the cording to slide through. That’s what makes it possible to raise, lower, and tilt the blinds. However, not everyone feels comfortable with route holes because of potential privacy issues. Choosing no-holes privacy option will eliminate these route holes with the cording on the back of the slats rather than through the slats. You can get the no-holes privacy option with select wood blinds, faux wood blinds, and pleated shades. No-holes privacy also helps block out more light when closed, giving you more control.
If you prefer the look of blinds with route holes, you can always add cloth tapes to cover those route holes and give your blinds a streamlined, finished look and feel. Cloth tapes come in a variety of colors, so you can mix and match to find the perfect combination for your home’s décor. Go modern and bold or classic and clean. Whatever you choose, you can be sure your cloth tapes will help you keep your privacy.
Top Down/Bottom Up
The top down/bottom up feature allows you to customize the amount of light and privacy you have. You can lower the shades from the top and raise from the bottom. This lets you keep the top open for natural light while keeping the bottom closed for privacy. The top down/bottom up feature is available with honeycomb shades, bamboo shades, and pleated shades.
Solar shades offer different levels of openness. The smaller the number means a tighter shade weave. When the weave is tight, the harder it is to see through it. However, if you pick the right openness, you’ll be able to see outside, even with the shades closed. It will also make it difficult for anyone outside to see inside, helping you retain your privacy.
Bamboo Shades with Privacy Liners
Bamboo shades have natural texture, and that texture can make small gaps. By simply adding a privacy liner, you’ll have the natural look of the bamboo without worrying about your privacy. You can take one step further by adding a blackout shade, which is perfect for bedrooms and baby nurseries. Bamboo shades will give a modern touch to any space.
No matter if you choose light filtering cellular shades or blackout cellular shades, you won’t have to worry about privacy. Even with the light filtering option, they are not translucent enough to threaten your privacy. So you can be sure to enjoy family time without worrying about your privacy. Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are not only great window coverings for privacy they are also great for lowering energy costs and saving you money.
