Window Coverings for Privacy

Window Coverings for Privacy Covering your windows with a custom blind or shade not only looks great in the room, it also helps you maintain your privacy. Here at Windo VanGo serving the greater Baltimore area, many customers have privacy as a top concern when selecting new window coverings. With today’s wide variety of window treatments and installation options, you can have privacy without completely blocking your source of natural light.

Which Window Coverings are Best for Privacy?

Blinds and shades provide differing levels of privacy. Blinds have slats that can be tilted to varying degrees, and shades are made of solid fabric. 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.

Installation Options for Privacy

A great way to improve privacy while still letting in natural light is with the top-down-bottom-up installation option on shades. Your shade can be closed at the bottom of the window, giving you privacy, while still letting in light at the top of the window. 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.

Total Privacy with Blackout Shades

Especially popular in bedrooms for their light-blocking properties, blackout shades provide absolute privacy. Many of our window covering styles are available in blackout fabric. 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.

Combine Blinds and Shades with Custom Drapery

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.
