Window treatments can do more than just enhance the appearance of a room, they can also provide privacy and security for your home. We’ll discuss seven window treatment ideas that can help you achieve better privacy in your home, and provide information on the best window treatments for each type of space. So, whether you are looking to cover a bedroom window or a bathroom window, we have the perfect solution for you!
Privacy Shades with Innovative Design
For the most intimate rooms in your home, appropriate window coverings should be a top priority. But not all window coverings provide equal amounts of privacy. You wouldn’t want to cover your bedroom windows with sheer curtains, just as you wouldn’t want to cover your bathroom window with see-through drapes. That’s where privacy shades come in.
Privacy shades are designed with innovative features that make them especially effective for providing privacy and security. These window treatments usually feature a single-layer fabric construction, which allows you to keep light coming into the room while still providing a shield from prying eyes. They allow you to control the amount of light coming into the room, so they’re great for bedrooms or home offices where adjustable lighting is needed.
Portrait™ Honeycomb Shades
Portrait™ Honeycomb Shades feature a new innovative design for window privacy. With a layer of honeycomb-shaped fabric, these window treatments provide superior insulation and energy efficiency, while still blocking out prying eyes. The window shades can also be raised or lowered depending on the amount of privacy you need.
For an added layer of privacy, consider incorporating SmartFit® installation with your honeycomb shade. SmartFit® utilizes edge to edge design and an optional solid frame that surrounds the glass area of the window. This edge-gripping innovation sits the shade closer to the edge of the window, minimizing possible light leakage. The secure installation provides flexible adjustment, such as lowering the shade from the top, keeping the bottom portion of the shade covered. This enhanced privacy capability means superior light control without worrying about the shade exposing your home interior to any prying eyes.
These luxury privacy shades feature unique fabric layers that can be adjusted to provide privacy while still allowing natural light and a view of the outdoors. Perfect for your home office, the dual-layered window shades can be made of a room darkening liner and sheer window-facing fabric that can be adjusted according to your desired level of privacy. You can host client meetings with confidence, providing a feeling of security for all.
Soluna™ Roller Shades
These window shades offer great privacy for any window, featuring a wide range of colors and adjustable fabrics. The full window coverage ensures that you get the best privacy possible in any space. Plus, they come in various levels of opacity so you can choose how much light you want to let in.
For bedrooms, Soluna™ Roller Shades with LightGuard 360™ is a dream come true. They ensure privacy from all sides of the window while still letting light in. LightGuard 360™ filters are designed to block out any pesky light that might leak through the sides or bottom of the shade, creating a serene environment. Plus, they can be operated using remote controls or smart home systems for added convenience.
UV & Heat Protection
For bathrooms and outside-facing areas in your home, consider investing in window treatments that provide UV and heat protection. The right window treatments can provide privacy without blocking the natural light during the day, reducing heat gain and preserving energy. They also protect against UV rays that can cause damage to furniture and fabrics.
Woodlore® Shutters offer an elegant window treatment that provides both privacy and light control. These window shutters are made of high quality eco-friendly wood composite and can be customized to fit the window frame perfectly. The louvers can tilt up or down for adjustable light control and privacy, making them great for bathrooms or offices.
Woodlore® Shutters are crafted with materials that resist damage from strong UV rays, making them long-lasting. With a solid wood composite core, they can withstand temperatures of up to 140°F. This ensures they won’t warp or fade over the years, making them an excellent choice for home office, kitchen, or bathroom areas.
These trending window shutters incorporate both traditional plantation shutters and a room darkening honeycomb shade, allowing you total control over the amount of natural light in your space while still providing privacy and insulation. This dual window treatment setup ensures that you still have the option to invite natural light into the room during the day, as well as the possibility of total room darkening for the ultimate night’s rest.
Minimal Light Leakage
For products that provide near-total light blockage, Soluna™ Roller Shades with LightGuard 360™ is a dream come true. They ensure privacy from all sides of the window while still letting light in. LightGuard 360™ filters are designed to block out any pesky light that might leak through the sides or bottom of the shade, creating a serene environment for peaceful relaxation. Plus, they can be operated using remote controls or smart home systems for added convenience.
Our premier blinds collection includes window treatments with slats that can be tilted to control light and privacy levels. These models are available in both horizontal and vertical orientations so that they can accommodate various window and door sizes.
For best results, try Norman®’s horizontal blinds. Both Normandy® Wood blinds and Ultimate™ Faux Wood blinds utilize award-winning patented SmartPrivacy® technology providing tighter closure and concealed route holes for extra privacy and less light leakage. Traditional horizontal blinds will typically place route holes in the middle of each slat in order to run the cord through, allowing unwanted light to sneak in even when the blind is closed. SmartPrivacy®’s innovative design instead places its route holes in the back of each slat, ensuring both the tightest closure on the market as well as an overall greater potential for darkness when the blind is closed.
Synchrony™ Vertical Blinds
For vertical window treatments, Norman®’s Synchrony™ Vertical Blinds are a great window cover solution. With slats that can stack to the left or right, as well as rotate left or right, you can easily adjust the blinds to your desired privacy level and still let in the perfect amount of light for your needs throughout the day. The unique S-curved vanes provide extra privacy, making sure to cover any potential gaps in between and providing a more thorough light blocking solution.
With more fantastic window covering options on the market today than ever before, it’ll be easy to update your windows with fresh designs for privacy.
