Whether your home has a traditional styling or a contemporary decor, curtains are an excellent option if you are looking for a classic window treatment that offers total privacy. Being that curtains are mostly made from thick enough materials to completely block out outside visibility when closed, they will provide the privacy you deserve. If a curtain is sheer, or see through, there is always an option of adding a basic liner to meet your needs. However, if you are concerned with being able to allow some light to seep through while still maintaining privacy, consider pairing curtains with another window treatment such as a cellular shade or a wood blind. Both of these window treatments offer light control adjustment levels that will complement the elegant beauty and privacy which curtains provide.
For an older home, one might suggest an embroidered curtain or a floral print drape and for a newer home perhaps either some form of solid curtain or a striped curtain. The reasoning behind this is that older homes generally have furniture, wall papering, and flooring that is more compatible with a floral print or embroidered drape while a newer home has a more functional, simpler home decor with sleeker lines that goes well with solids and stripes.
