Certain rooms, such as bedrooms, bathrooms, and those facing the street or a neighbor, require privacy window treatments. Privacy blinds and shades should be opaque enough to prevent view-through even when backlit so that at the most only vague shadows are visible from the outside. We have created this collection of privacy window treatments that are made with an opaque material or with an option such as a liner or routeless slats. These products will block view-through, but not necessarily all light - for products that provide total blackout light control, please visit our blackout products page.
You may want to be selective as to when you want privacy and when you want to have the window uncovered and allow in light. To balance these needs, consider layering your window treatments, such as a light filtering shade combined with drapery. Choosing a privacy shade with a top down/bottom up option is also a great option to balance lighting and privacy needs.
If you prefer the look of blinds, choose from our selection of privacy blinds which will offer more flexible light control than a privacy shade. The horizontal slats on wood blinds, faux woods, minis and shutters can be tilted upwards to allow light in while maintaining privacy. If you choose an outside mount blind or shade, we recommend allowing plenty of overlap on the wall to prevent view-through on the sides of the shade Some blinds and shades such as woven wood shades, will have a privacy liner added as an option to provide the extra opacity needed. Note that privacy liners and blackout liners are not the same type of fabric and that blackout fabrics are heavier and made to block more light.
