Certain rooms, such as bedrooms, bathrooms, and those facing the street or a neighbor, require window blinds that provide privacy. Such a window blind 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 blinds that provide privacy with the option of 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.
things to consider:
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 privacy window blinds with drapery.
The horizontal slats on wood blinds, faux wood blinds, mini blinds and shutters can be tilted upwards to allow light in while maintaining privacy.
